    AMC was going through an interesting styling period at this time. I know that they had big plans for future product. I did like the styling of the Ambassador, Marlin, Javelin, 'bug-eye' Matador coupe and even the quirky Pacer. George Romney did great things with what resources he had.
    The promise of the Wankel engine didn't pan out and the company wasn't big enough to survive on it's own and develop new product with much of its technology still stuck in the 1960's.
    It was sad to see the Ramblers turn into slow-selling Renaults and re-badged Eagles and then vanish. Maybe we'll get the Hornet name back? :D

    Thanks Dave, the AMX3 couldn't be more Pantera than a Pantera itself. Kind of nice.

    Although the AMX/3 got a lot of attention over the years, My favorite of the AMX concepts was the AMX\2 -

    The one with the vest and checkered slacks would look beautiful, except that dumb orange car got in the way :)

    Very interesting stuff! Thanks!

    The Hornet GT would've been great to see on the road.
