1978 AMX Sport Compact Car
The AMC Concord is a compact and economical car by 1970s US standards, produced by the American Motors Corporation for the 1978 through 1983 model years. The Concord replaced the AMC Hornet and to some extent the mid-size AMC Matador, discontinued after 1978 in a market moving to downsized automobiles. Offered in four-door sedan, two-door coupé (through 1982), three-door hatchback (through 1979) and four-door station wagon forms, AMC sought to give its, by this time venerable, compact car an image of luxury, class, and value.[1] The Concord was AMC's volume seller from the time it appeared. The car was available as a sports-oriented two-door hatchback AMX model without any "Concord" badges or identification for the 1978 model year, as well as the Concord Sundancer convertible during 1981 and 1982, an authorized conversion sold through AMC dealers.

'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.





Ralph Lauren Fine Model Cars Launch Event 24th Nov 2011
Amalgam Fine Model Cars, H.R. Owen the Ferrari dealership of Knightsbridge, and Antonio Ghini Editor in Chief of the Official Ferrari Magazine and minder of the rich history of Ferrari, gathered with VIP guests at the Ralph Lauren New Bond Street Store to celebrate the launch of a superb precisely crafted collection of large scale models of the wonderful cars in the Ralph Lauren Collection. Nick Mason generously brought along his 1962 Ferrari 250 GTO, which is widely admired as the best example of the most beautiful car ever created. The beautiful 1962 race car valued at around £20 million was to be seen parked outside the main entrance along with a Ferrari 599 from H.R.Owen of Knightsbridge, a Ferrari SA Aperta owned by Mark Cale of System.3, and a fantastic Ferrari Enzo. Ralph Lauren is widely known for his superb collection of historic motor cars. His collection consists exclusively of the best examples of the rarest and most sought after cars in the world. As a passionate collector of exclusive classic cars it was inevitable that many if not all roads would lead him to Maranello and unsurprisingly there are more Ferraris in Mr.Lauren's collection than any other marque. The Ralph Lauren Car Collection is highly regarded for the exceptional rarity and calibre of the pieces it contains. Rather than creating a car collection in a systematic way Mr. Lauren has taken an individual approach acquiring cars that appeal to his personal sense of aesthetics. With the exception of certain utilitarian vehicles all of his cars are European and all were created for racing or touring. Many of the cars from the collection have a racing pedigree, even if they were also intended for use on the open road. Amalgam Fine Model Cars are proud to have the unique opportunity to model all of the important cars within the Ralph Lauren collection in accurate and precise detail, starting with 8 of the 17 cars shown at the exhibition at Les Arts Decoratif in Paris earlier this year. Models of the balance of 9 cars that were in the exhibition will be created during 2012. The rest of cars in the collection will be modelled over the coming years. The Ralph Lauren Fine Model Car Collection will be available exclusively from Ralph Lauren in a limited edition of just 99 of each car. Each individual model is authenticated with a unique edition number and certificate. For over 16 years Amalgam FMC has been supplying the world's best and most precise hand-made models to the automotive design and motor racing industries, and to collectors worldwide. In 1995 Amalgam Fine Model Cars began working with F1 Teams and in 1998 they began a lasting supply relationship with Ferrari. Parallel with the expansion of their activities in Formula 1 Amalgam began to develop precise models of classic race cars. The relationship with Ferrari went from strength to strength and there was a keen interest from Ferrari in developing models of all the significant cars in their rich racing history. Developing the necessary processes and skills to make historic models that stand up well in the company of the original superb pieces of engineering was a demanding learning curve, but Amalgam are clearly producing models that do the originals justice. Starting in around 2001 it was again Ferrari that provided the impetus to developing Amalgam's capacity to quickly develop really superb models of Ferrari GT cars to show at the launch event for each new design. Amalgam's superb models of these current Ferrari masterpieces have been much sought after by very high end model collectors, and many bespoke models of their cars have been made for owners. Amalgam Fine Model Cars now offer 1:8 scale models of all of the Ferraris created since the F430, right through to the latest car launched in 2011, the Ferrari 458 Spider. In the last few years Amalgam Fine Model Cars have been producing one-off models at even larger scale for owners of the world's most exclusive car collections. The prestigious launch event took place at the Ralph Lauren Store at No1. New Bond Street in London. The event was hosted by Antonio Ghini, Editor-in-Chief of the Official Ferrari Magazine and Tim Kearns of H.R.Owen in Knightsbridge. Amongst the VIP guests present were: Nick Mason of Pink Floyd Maximillion Cooper of the Gumball Rally David Nelson - Head of Design at Foster and Partners. Mark Cale CEO of System.3 Stefano Saporetti - Head of Licensing and Brand at Ferrari Spa Clive Beecham - MD of Kinnerton Chocolate The models on display included; Ferrari 250 GTO Ferrari 250 TR Ferrari 250 GT Berlinetta Ferrari 375 Plus Bugatti 57SC McLaren F1 LM Jaguar XKD Amalgam's Managing Director, Sandy Copeman said of the project "The Ralph Lauren Collection is a unique representation of the pinnacle of automotive design history. We view this opportunity to create large scale replicas of all the cars in the collection as both important and indeed very, very exciting".





1978 AMC Gremlin
The AMC Gremlin is a two-door subcompact car produced in the United States, Canada and Mexico by the American Motors Corporation (AMC) and Vehículos Automotores Mexicanos. The Gremlin was an economy car by 1970s U.S. standards. It served as a foundation for alternative fuels and power systems, including pure electric. Designed by Bob Nixon from an idea by Richard A. Teague, the car was based on a shortened and adapted Hornet platform with a Kammback-type tail. faster than other subcompacts of the time, it competed with the Chevrolet Vega and Ford Pinto, and also with imported cars including the Volkswagen Beetle and Toyota Corona. The manufacturer described it as "the first American-built import". The Gremlin was introduced on 1 April 1970, and a total of 671,475 were built in its single generation (one chassis design) and also in only one body style.

AMC Matador
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 season.

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.
