Brisket Delayed on Account of AMC

Postby rms827 » Sun Apr 15, 2018 7:23 pm

If you were following my brisket post (shameless plug, LOL), you know I had to put off my reveal to go run an errand. I didn't want to jinx it before it was certain, but not I can tell the rest of the story.

I'm swapping out my Grand Marquis for this cute little 1964 AMC Rambler Classic 287. :cheers:

Yep, it's as clean as it looks.

Yes, that IS factory AC, WOOT!

I'm actually picking it up tomorrow evening, but I gave it a look over, offered a deposit and arranged to pay the balance tomorrow and take ownership. It needs some spit and polish here and there... New hoses, trans pan gasket and shift linkage adjustment, etc... Beyond that, it's pretty cherry. This thing could make a nice little sleeper hot rod. :mrgreen:

Thanks OUP. :D

This thing is as close as I'll get to the hobby nowadays. Jey Leno and his buddies have turned classics into a largely rich man's hobby. This'll be a nice little daily driver though, and classics are cheaper to repair than the new stuff.

Not sure which I'm happier with, the new car or the way my brisket turned out. :mrgreen:

A brilliant and simple solution, LOL. :tup: :D

the interior is so clean on that car, I'm really considering a no eating rule like we have with the g/f's new Subaru Forester though.

I was gonna suggest that you get a CarHop Tray like I got for my Fiddy Fi - - but you still got to eat it on the upholstery :laughing7: 8) :salut:

Very cool :D

That no grub rule always seems to get broken eventually. Dunno with this AMC though. I finally have a classic in decent shape. It'd be a shame to end up with the upholstery having some greasy stain on it.
