Since we are doing an AMX Project Car I thought it would be good to take a look back at the historical beginning of the AMX.
One of the most famous cars was this pink 1968 AMX given to Playboy Playmate Angela
Dorian. Every AMX has a dash plaque with the cars number on it. Angela’s number was
36-24-35; her measurements!
This is a rendering for the never built 1971 2-seat AMX. In 1971 AMC decided to do a “Thunderbird” on the AMX and make it a four seater. Unfortunately, it was simply nothing more than an optioned Javelin.
It is a book you can sit down and thumb through and enjoy all the photos but it is also one that when you are ready to read it you are rewarded with useful information.
This is a photograph dated April 1968 and shows the Corvette killer AMX. It would have been a mid-engined machine that Corvette never was.

About the Author: I grew up and lived in Iowa for nearly 40 years before moving to Southern California. The time there was very rewarding but the urge for a slower pace moved us to Tennessee a few years ago and we love it. I have been into cars since I was old enough to remember. I don't have a brand loyalty although I do prefer American Muscle. As long as it has four wheels on it I get excited. Few men are lucky enough to be able to share their passion for cars with the woman they love. Fortunately, my wife Katriana is also a gear head and many of our activities revolve around the cars. When they don't we are usually out with our miniature donkeys. You can see more about that part of our lives at http://www.LegendaryFarms.com.
