Regular readers know that we’re fans of the late, lamented and plucky American Motors and we’ve featured their midsized muscle car, The Rebel Machine, a couple of times before. This, however, is unusual even for an AMC Machine, a rare car to begin with. It’s a barn fresh 1970 Machine that was used as an unmarked patrol (or more likely pursuit) car in Montana. It was spotted at this year’s American Motors Owners meet in Livonia. It may sound a little silly, but if you were tooling along on a Montana highway at high speed, would you think this was a cop car? How many police cars have hood-mounted tachs? On the other hand, the industrial strength antenna mount on the rear fender might be a clue.
What folks are saying:
"...I've been over to Cars In Depth on many occasions. Barring the whole 3D thing which drives me up the wall (that's a personal thing, though), I like the content, the writing, and the simple formatting. You do a great job over there, and I am impressed."
