Driving on Tesson Ferry tonight, I had the pleasure of driving behind this rare relic of the early muscle car days. It's an AMC Javelin, which is rare enough, but it appears that it might be a little more special. It could very well be a "Mark Donohue" edition, which was a car sold so that AMC could compete with Ford, GM, and Chrysler in the Trans-Am racing series of the late 60's and early 70's. If my history is right, this should be a 1970 and it should have had the 290 horsepower 360 V-8, although AMC was well known for fudging details as it struggled to remain in business. It was a very, very nice example. I consider myself lucky to have a photo of it.
There are two (count them, TWO!) AMC AMX cars in my neighborhood. AMX's are shortened Javelin's and are a bit odd looking but cool nonetheless. Both are in rough shape. But it's nice to see something different once in a while.
