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.

1977 AMC Matador Coupe
A drive in a 1977 AMC Matador Coupe, equipped with a 360-cubic inch 2-barrel V-8 and automatic. Not a car seen everyday! These old cars have a ride quality that is so smooth, and not so 'busy' as one feels in a lot of cars produced nowadays.

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.
