1974 Hornet Hatchback by AMC
Hi fellow youtubers! So there is a bit of a story here regarding this nice example of a 1974 AMC Hornet. I used to own this car from 2002-2007. Then, I sold it. I regretted doing that and so this year, I decided I was going to ask the person I sold it to in 2007 if I could buy it back. I had asked that person to contact me if they ever decided to sell it to offer me the first right of refusal to buy it back. I even called this person every year since 2007 to touch base with them, see how they were doing and if they were enjoying the car. I found out in Oct 2011, when I made my call to this person to inquire about buying it back, that they had sold it in JUNE of 2011!! They had never even contacted me to tell me that they were going to sell it. (Even though I had provided them with all of my still valid contact info that was still with all the paperwork when I bought the car back!) I was certainly "bummed" (that's me being "nice") to say the least, but I tracked down the car from the June sale and then found out it had been sold yet again in only a six month timeframe! Out of desperation, I put an add out on craigslist with a photo of the car and a nice gentleman called me back who knew the new current owner! (That's like winning the LOTTERY!! WOW!) So, true to his word, the nice gentleman who called me in response to my craigslist add, contacted the current owner and gave them my number. The current owner actually called me back and I explained to them that I used to own this car and would love the chance to buy it back. They thought about it for a day and decided they would sell it back to me. I was elated!! I felt so lucky to have been able to just find it again, let alone buy it back! To learn that it was still in great shape after five years of not owning it was just MORE icing on the cake!! So, I hopped on a flight to Ohio and drove this car all the way back to Palm Springs, CA where I live! (I had it gone through thoroughly by a mechanic first!) Even so, the trip was not without incident (I broke down in Stroud, OK,). Again, lady luck was on my side and I was able to get it repaired and made it the rest of the way home without incident! That is why I mention in the video about being glad to get it back and what I'm referencing when I say "what I went through to get it back!" This car was originally an Arizona car and although it is not a Hornet X, it is a very well optioned out Hornet. It's original factory color was Sienna Orange as evidenced under the hood. Before I bought it (the first time) in 2002, it had already been re-painted to it's current Grasshopper Green (paint code C-8) color. I think the color suits the car nicely, (and it's great to say I have a "Green Hornet"), but I would love to re-paint the under hood area to match the rest of the car. Even though this car only shows about 47,000 miles on the clock, I would like to slowly restore it and have all the systems of the car gone through since she is 38 years old. Other than the re-paint and new belts, hoses and tires, etc, the rest is pretty much all stock and original. I think the design and body lines of this car have withstood the test of time well. She certainly draws lots of attention and thumbs up from folks everywhere. I had a lady once follow me for ten miles just to ask me what kind of car it was! It's fun to take her out and enjoy the nostalgia that it brings out in people. People tell me all the time that they used to own one,or that they learned to drive in one, or even that theirs was a POS or that it was the worst car they ever owned!! LOL. It's all good! My Mom had a four door Hornet that we tooled around in when I was a small kid, so for me, I love the good memories that it brings back to me of that period of time in my life. The music was fun and times were simpler. This little two door hatchback, with it's V-8 and A/C, bucket seats, "hidden compartment" and two rear view mirrors and optional alloy wheels makes this a very well optioned Hornet! The fact that it is also in very well maintained shape and it isn't a rust bucket and that it has NOT been abused makes it now even MORE rare! Before I bought it back, I looked long and hard for another Hornet hatchback and there were REAL SLIM pickings out there! Most were the in-line sixes (still an awesomely rugged and stout engine!), without A/C and most had bench seats. I can tell you that in the last five years, a LOT of these have been crushed or sold for scrap. So, maybe I didn't win the "mega-millons" lottery, but I sure feel like I "buzzed" in on the amazing chance to get her back! Thanks for your interest in my video and for reading my small book if you made it this far! Please feel free to leave a comment if you can behave and write something nice or meaningful. Peace and take care everyone!





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 VehĂ­culos 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.
