The Mata-Dorks are a group of guys from IPMS/C.A.R.S. in Miniature who built the difficult-to-work-with AMC Matador model car.

1974 AMC Matador Modified YelBlu Disney061514
You may have seen Matadors before, but I'd bet you've never seen one like
this before! The owner really liked the original, but those bumpers were a
problem, so he basically redesigned the car's exterior with parts that he
hand fabricated. The interior was redone in the same seating material used
in commercial airliners. You have to wonder, if you didn't know the
history of this car, that it might have been an "idea" car generated by AMC
stylists..such is the quality and the boldness of design of this one-off
car. Kudos to the owner/designer...a real tribute to imaginative design!
The engine is an AMC 401.
A home made car show! AMC Matador, Pontiac G6 convertible, ETC
While getting a 1964 Pontiac up and running, several of us showed up with
old cars because the day was nice. Lined up in a row were a Chevy
Suburban, a 1964 Impala SS, a 1972 Oldsmobile Vista Cruiser, a 1978 AMC
Matador and a 1983 Chevy Impala 4-door sedan.
Brian's AMC Bone Yard
We went out to Sask., to grab as many AMC parts as we could before the
crusher comes for all these cars. Here's a an overview of the yard.
These cars are probably gonna be gone within a week or so.
1969 AMC Rebel Commercial - Better Quality Version - Carol Wayne
Is this Carol Wayne in this commercial a the 41 second mark??? About
60,000 AMC Rebels were built in 1969. They could be equipped with a 232,
285 sixes or bigger V8 Engines. Rebels were used by Driving Schools, a
very small niche market for sure. AMC built left hand drive, right hand
drive and combined left and right side drive for two drivers. In
Austrailia and New Zealand and Mexico, the Rebel was still badged as a
Rambler rather than an AMC. Note the other AMC products in the Commercial,
you see a Green Ambassador and a 69 Rambler Sedan.......at the very very
very end, you can see a 1961-63 Rambler 2 door coupe blue in color turning
right into a parking lot. American Motors used the Advertising Agency of
Wells, Rich & Greene, headed up by Mary Wells Lawrence
A not too often seen vehicle, a 1978 AMC Matador 2-door coupe. This was a
styling direction taken by AMC, starting for the 1974 model year. This
example was in a gold color originally, and has air conditioning, 360 cubic
inch V-8, Torque-Command 3-speed automatic transmission and an uncommon
option, not offered by any other manufacturer with this style of roof,
roll-down back windows. Restoration will be continuing over this winter
1974 AMC Matador Oleg Cassini edition
What a rare car! These cars never really sold in volume..the styling was a
bit controversial at the time. This Oleg Cassini edition is even more
rare! Lincoln was into naming special editions of their cars, so AMC was
just following an industry custom! They also made Gremlins with Levi

The Unfortunate History of the AMC Pacer
Behind all the jokes and insults, the AMC Pacer is actually a car with a
great deal of history. It began as radical new design from an underdog
company. In an attempt to combat the big, bland, boxy cars from Detroit's
"Big Three," little American Motors Corporation decided to build something
a little different. Their one-eyed car stylist Dick Teague proposed a
small, wide car with big windows and smooth areodynamics. Americans had
never seen anything like it.
This in-depth documentary tells the true story of the Pacer. Unbeknownst
to many, the car persevered through manufacturing setbacks, government
regulations, and many other troubles. Featuring a ton of old car
advertisements and rare footage of AMC's factory, the film helps paint a
picture of the Pacer's world. Director Joe Ligo sits down with AMC stylist
Vincent Geraci, author Patrick Foster, and television personalities John
Davis and Pat Goss from PBS's MotorWeek.
What's an AMC Matador?
Sorry, had to remove the Our Town Song from Cars sountrack by James Taylor.
This has been a very popular AMV considering what an obscure car this was,
following from the roots in the original Ambassador to it exotic Premier
replacement which led to the LH and current full size Chrysler cars.
'67 Mustang Model Car
This is my first model car that I've successfully attempted. Well...it
depends on what you mean successful. You can tell it's not perfect, but I
believe that I will get better over time. We learn through our mistakes.
Even I didn't want to correct the mistakes I've made because I can look at
the Mustang as an indicator
on what I need to improve on. It doesn't have all the parts, plenty of
fingerprints, and I messed up gluing the bumpers together (which I think is
the hardest part). Forget the shocks...those were too small to deal with.
It was pretty fun though, haven't attempted building my own model cars
since I was around 12-13 so it was a difference.
I have other model cars that are much larger and pre-built. I just want a
new hobby, that's all.
If you got any tips and tricks on building a model car, be sure to comment.
I'll eventually be building another model car, so I'm always looking for
advice on what I need to improve on.
Hope you enjoyed the video! Be sure to rate, comment, and subscribe. Peace.
