AMX Photo Archive; Book Review


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.

I grew up and lived in Iowa for a good portion of my life before moving to Southern California. After 20+ years we now live outside Nashville Tennessee. 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 especially the 1969/1970 NASCAR Aero Cars. (Check out our other web site at site) As long as it has four wheels and an engine 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. We have a small collection that includes at least one car from each of the Big Three. It includes a Best of Show winner, a survivor, a driver with lots of patina and several others. Katrina prefers all original cars while I like to modify them so we have a few of each. When we aren't playing with cars we are out working with or showing our miniature donkeys. You can see more about that part of our lives at
