If I only ever own one classic car, it's going to be an Eagle.

One thing every AMC has going for it is exculsivity.

Eagles were cool...ahead of their time...had the whole crossover thing (esp. Outback/Allroad style) down 30 years ago...

For an older AMC, I wouldn't mind having a later Grand Wagoneer.

I'd take a '74 Matador X coupe, among other AMCs.

Gran Torino wagon

Rambler

Pacer

Chevelle

Impala

More that I cannot even remember. I was at a classic domestic graveyard yesterday, all the above cars were rusted to the point they were worthless. There were several 80's b-body coupes in there as well. There was a Cadillac in there that needed to be broken out and taken to a secure facility.

-Silver 1967 Lincoln Continental 4-Door Sedan with Suicide Doors and Black Leather interior. Somebody in my neighborhood uses it as a daily driver by the looks of it (will get pics later)

-Saw a nice Dark Mocha 2009 LaX CXL with the Cocoa/Cashmere Leather and Chrome Wheels (my favorite color combo)... Marked down to 25000$ CDN (like 11000$ off sticker) at a little Pontiac Buick dealer in town, they're really hurting for business, sad thing is I think they're going to go under.

(and in case anyone's wondering, yes I would rather have the 3.8L W-Body LaX optioned like that than the new LaX)

Squeeky clean, burgundy metallic 1980 Camaro steel-roof.

I know it was an '80 cause it had one of those fake "imitation" novelty pates on

the front that said: ''80[heart]BEAT" in a California style plate. Didn't grab my

camera fast enough.

MINT!!!! 1989 Jaguar XJ-S V12 coupe in platinum/saddle at the junkyard.

It has been awaiting a title for about 2 years, the search proved futile so

it was taken ot of the high-value cages & left out for the vultures to pick

apart. Less than a week later the doors, interior, wheels, nose, fenders,

decklid, lights & grill were gone.

The kicker...? It was perfectly drivable!!!

-------

That's a "daytona yellow" 1970 Chevelle with the SS "tuxedo black" stripes.

Could be a 350, 396 or 454 :spin:

As well as the new Insight. Certainly beats the hell out of a Prius, style wise.

>>"As well as the new Insight"<<

WOW!! that's hideous. Could the quarter be any thicker- makes it look like it's riding on 13s.

Neither better than or worse looking than the prius, who's commonality has deadened the sight of it at this point.

Went to the starting event for the Copperstate 1000 road rally today, held at a baseball park in Tempe. Was a lot of fun, saw a nice variety of vintage Ferraris, Aston Martins, Rolls Royces, a 1928 Bentley, a 4dr Auburn 812 (didn't know Auburn had other bodystyles than the boattail speedster in the mid '30s), a few Mercedes, as well as some '60s Corvettes, Shelbys, and a couple Pro-Touring style musclecars ('69 Camaro, '66 GTO). I'll post a link to photos I took later, as Fotki is down currently....grrr.

Copperstate 1000
