Notice there is hardly a mention, or in the links, no mention, of the 1979-80 model AMC Spirit/AMX, which is what my car is. i believe no one really cared much for them, merely despising them due to it being a rebadged AMC Spirit with fender flares and an air dam, and nothing more. in 1980 the Spirit/AMX had no option for a V-8 engine, making the 258 cubic inch inline six the only engine, further shattering the racey legend the 1968 AMX began. the production of the 1980 model was stopped mid-year, with only 865 produced, making the 1980 model hard to find, many today have been reworked to resemble a 1979 instead, including a V-8 swap.
However, i like it, it's unique, there are no others like it here in town, and it's pretty stock. no engine swaps, no 1979 mods, although it lacks the air dam and fender flares, an improvement if you ask me
