My Friday Substacker is hell on wheels: All-American muscle, about, of all things, AMC’s (!) early-70s muscle car offerings. No, really, they had some, and they weren’t at all bad, either. A taste:
The thing about the short-lived AMC marque was, they were an unpretentious, honest-to-God American car maker. They didn’t try to copy anybody (as evidenced by that ugliest of ugly ducklings, the Pacer, Gawd help us), they didn’t seem to worry about trying to either follow or set any trends. Instead, they went their own way, just trying to make a decent car while remaining competitive in a tough, ever-shifting market. Any car guy worth his salt has gotta respect that.
