This AMC Javelin AMX is one of the most stunning muscle cars I've seen

    I do love a nice Javelin... back when I bought my 944 (in 1999) my roommate almost bought one with like 35k original miles. If only. :(

    I had a friend that had one back when I was a lot younger. Ton of fun to drive and a good looking car. Problem was the styling was ahead of its time so most people ignored them.
     
  5. Being an ignorant brit, i had no idea what an AMC Javelin was, and judging by that picture i think I was better off not knowing! :p That being said, a quick google and i have to say the standard ones looks lovely, dunno what monstrosity youve posted is about though :D

    Way overdone IMO. The aftermarket parts interfere with the original design flow, too much. The color is indeed great, though. Muscle cars usually look bloody awesome in stock trim so some subtle aftermarket options are enough for my taste.

    What's the real inner beauty of these old cars is that the tuning parts available for them are actual making the car faster: performance carburators (or however that's spelled), intake mods, exhaust mods, brake, suspension upgrades were all sold by the original dealer back in the day I think (correct me if I'm wrong).

    Where do you get this today? Buy an Audi A3 and try to give it 50 more BHP without buying some stupid style and tech package that's 10 times as expensive than what you actually wanted ;-)

    So bottom line: these beasts need to stay original in design but modified to be able to take a turn at 100 kph without wobbling like a rocking chair :p

    I think its a great reenvisioning. Reminds me a lot of the Matchbox cars I had as a kid. Its still practical although with some fantastical, fun fantasy stylings. For me cars are art not a religion. No need to be a purest when it comes to art.

    You could probably get 50 horsies out of any modern car with a little re programming of the ecu.

    But I'm with you on body kits, most these top end cars live in cities where they'll never be going above 50kph or if they do it's on a dual carriageway so all the performance is utterly pointless, but at least it will look the part with all with all the plastic doodads hanging off it.
