I've got 3 each of the vintage 32 roadster and vicky. Every so often I open the boxes to gaze at that beautiful virgin styrene. Thank goodness for ebay. The one thats hard to find is the "Snake Eyes" version.

But thanks again to Ebay, I got this nice vintage built-up! Been thinking of contacting Greg Holland to see if he can do up the "Dixie Speed Shop" decals.

Same here!  I had a red AMX version.  it was a fast little car.  What did you have?

I had the 74 Hornet Hatch, white with blue interior. I used to keep the back seat down so that it felt like a two door sport car! LOL  It was fast, but since it was a manual 3 speed with that V8, it always wound out too soon.  Oh, and that linkage would often stick when I would go from reverse, so I would have to reach under and wiggle it! LOL It was a blast tho. I had it in 82-83

Heres one I've never seen nor heard of. Looks like a morph between the Chizzler and the Sour Sisters AA/FD. Heres a link to the ebay sale. Only $426 bucks plus shipping! http://www.ebay.com/...=item5652c1b08e

Mine had the six cylinder with a 2bbl and a 4 speed transmission.  A surprisingly quick car and one of my favorites.

My buddy worked at an AMC dealer in that era.  We got to drive a bunch of new AMCs,  Gremlins, Hornets and Pacers.  They were very interesting, cool and fast with the 4 speeds, both six and eights!  I remember one red Pacer wagon with chrome wheels and a 4 speed that I still think about!

Bringing this thread back to life.

 

I think there was a 7up one in this series too. Great 70s hair.
