AMC muscle the AMX

The late 60s and early 1970s was Detroit's hay day for muscle. When I was in high school in northern California In the Late 1970s These beasts could be picked up on a Fast Food wage. Many of the folks that bought these cars were moving on to Family haulers.My toy was a 1969 mach 1 Mustang . I was cruising the strip one night when I got into a race with a 1970 AMX . The race was close but I won by only a couple of feet 50 dollars was the prize. When the night was done I was driving the AMX and a thousand bucks . in my pocket. When you are in the body shop business you can not fall in love with your ride.. My girl friend was pissed about the trade. So I told her to hit the road. The Amx was one of the fastest rides I never had, of course with a little work.The AMX sported a 390cu,in, engine and the speedometer pegged at 140 M.P.H..
