    As a young man in the 70’s I loved AMC. I was also hooked on Ford GT-40 walking on Ferrari. When I first heard of the AMX/3 I was fascinated by the mid-engine design, like the Pantera. Stationed in Germany in the early 80’s I was honored to drive a GT-40, Ford powered Pantera, Studebaker Avanti, and view up close a AMX/3. Which one I can’t remember. Of all of my “Want One” cars I actually liked the AMX/3 better than the Pantera (which everyone else drooled over). Love what you are doing. Classic vehicles like this should be on the road and roadable.

    I was this close to trading my 1971 AMX for a 1972 Pantera. I was getting a wonderful deal. In the end (damn it) I could’t justify the extra $50-$75 extra in payments. I think about it almost every day.
