This famous advertisement shows AMC’s total disregard of motorsports and performance as a marketing tool. With the car industry enjoying a muscle car boom, AMC failed in the years of 1964 through 1967 to attract baby boomer consumers.

Q: Greg, I enjoy your AMC and Rambler columns but what about the Rambler Marlin? How about some info on the Marlin and your recollections? Thanks.
