Though American Motors never approached the size of Detroit’s Big Three, it produced a long series of successful cars that were distinctive, often innovative and in many cases influential. This history examines AMC’s cars from the company’s formation in 1954 through its absorption by Chrysler in 1987. The Gremlin, Pacer and Eagle vehicles are examined in detail, as are the AMC custom cars of George Barris and Carl Green. The text details AMC’s 1980s involvement with the French firm Renault and the design legacy of that joint venture, which includes the Hummer. The evolution of Jeep is covered from the 1960s through the 2000s. Features include some 225 photographs; a listing of AMC / Rambler clubs, organizations and business entities, with contact details; tables of detailed specifications and performance data; data on technical devices, trim packages and all model variations; a comprehensive account of AMC / Rambler appearances in film, television and cartoons.

Combining candy-colored paint jobs with muscle car attitudes and southern California coo, Hot Wheels cars changed the toy world forever in 1968. For the next 10 years as millions of kids discovered the joy of these miniature marvels, one small characteristic came to define this radical die-cast era: the thin red line on the cars tires. Hot Wheels Classics: The Redline Era proudly showcases more than 500 spectacular color photos (so come of the finest cars of this groundbreaking time.) Sprinkled throughout the visual and historical feast, you'll enjoy the commentary from legendary car designer Larry Wood and other Mattel designers. More than 40 years of introduction, Hot Wheels cars have experienced a multitude of changes, incredible success, trials and tribulations, and ultimately crafted one of the greatest American toy stories of all time. Yet is one single feature from decades past that skill defines for many their greatest: the Redline.
