The state of Alabama actually used these as State Trooper vehicles at the time. Decked out in the standard colors (dark blue and grey, if memory serves) and with a single large 'bubble-gum machine' blue (or were they still red?) light on top, it made for an imposing vehicle that would require one to be crazy to try and outrun.The one thing that is engraved in my memory was the notification sticker on the dash of the vehicle. I and a couple of friends were admiringly scoping out the vehicle parked outside a restaurant while the trooper was inside having lunch. There on the engine-turned dash was the sign "AT SPEEDS IN EXCESS OF 130 MPH, ROLL UP WINDOWS". Needless to say, we were impressed.
Alabama used Javelins... not Concords.
AAHHH...I stand corrected on the model. It was the dash notice that's ingrained in memory...
Oh man that place looks like AMC Heaven!I hope we get to see the Gremlin and other Eagle some time soon.
Hmmm, makes me wonder if the troopers in Louisiana used Renault Le Cars? And if so, did they have a sticker on the dash that said "At speeds above 42MPH...uh, disregard, it'll never happen!"?
@ anon, they kind of resemble police in Mad Max, I didn't know those were used for that.
In my 455 rocketThe kind the police driveCouldn't harldy wait just to take my turnShe was made for the strait waysShe grew up hatin' CheveroletsShe's a rocket she was made to burnI'm tellin' you and I ain't ashamedI cried when that wrecker cameAs we skid, I thought I heard the angels sing(sounded like the beach Boys)And the curb, and began to sailTook out most of the safety railsEven the cop asked me"man, what you have in that thing"Read more: Kathy Mattea - 455 Rocket Lyrics | MetroLyrics
His AMC collection is impressive
All those AMC's..... Bet while the pics were being taken, the guy was inside watching a Betamax! :D
Wow, you finally spotted one. looks like my concord amx except this one's missing the flares and the flaming hornet on the hood. In my opinion the flares make the look this car, it just doesn't look right without them. quite a collection indeed. eagle sx4, two eagle kammbacks and a spirit as well as the amx, he or she is a one for the more obscure amc's as am I.
jeez, our first amx, and it's a '78? LOLi had no idea.important question: is it white or off-white? BECAUSE.
