Default El Toro de Matador!

Something different

Went to Coffee and Cars this morning, and one of my favorites showed up so I snapped a couple. Then the rains came, and it looks like the shows for today may be a washout, will see.

Haven't seen one of those in a looong time, don't recall them looking that good either One of those "out there" AMC styling exercises that didn't really hit the mark.

The only AMC that i liked was the 1968 AMX two seater, 390 4 speed. That was a great looking car!

A pregnant Pinto with a case of the gout. So said one of the magazines back in the day. Why I remember that, I don't know.....

So I was curious about where this model evolved from, apparently the Matador coupe was an attempt to compete with the Chevelle and similar. The boxy family Matadors were LA cop cars (Adam 12), and that type was also used in the original Assault on Precinct 13.

Yes, nothing tops the AMX Javelin too late to save the company.

Funny how, at a glance, they don't look all that different from any other full size Mopar/Ford/GM car of the day, when looking back a few decades. Just like every era before them.

The thing about a '39 Ford pick-up is that that ugly grille kinda' grows on ya' after a while.

Not taking anything too seriously.
