Walking The Banner; “Rambling With Stefan”…(a new page)

Just a quick post to alert subscribers and other regular visitors about my new page, (accessible via a new ‘tab’ in the banner above):  A compendium of photos featuring the Rambler; it’s features; and its’ beauty.

Many of the photos will have captions containing factoids and trivia regarding Nash; Rambler; American Motors; and the culture of vintage cars in general.

This post will be incorporated into the new page.  I’m not going to artificially inflate my ‘post-count’  with a new post for each addition, so check the new page frequently.

Enjoy!

This series of pictures is of the cruise-ins; car shows; and other auto related events I’ve been attending since acquiring the Rambler.  I enjoy the camaraderie of other vintage auto owners as much as I do poking around under the hoods of their rides.

Perfect posture and decorum here......."Look, but do NOT touch!!"

A 1916 Rambler at a recent show I attended on July 4th.  This car is never trailered, but always driven to any show or event it graces.

A 1959 Rambler American.  Basically, a reintroduction of the same body which introduced "Rambler" in 1950 as a small economy car. ( If it ain't broke....)

The '63 Classic was the first Rambler to finally replace the 1957 and up uni-body found on my Rambler  The'63 brought Rambler into the 'sixties' and finally out of the 'fifties' as far as design went.

Wherever I park at one of these events, I always seem to attract almost all of the other 'performance' cars.....

Even at AMC -sponsored events, the Nashes and Ramblers are always vastly outnumbered by Javelins: Gremlins; Pacers; Matadors; Hornets, and the like.  This show was unique in that regard.....

A 1962 Studebaker.  Another "orpah make" of car, in today's parlance.  These two were the only ones to remain at this "cruise-in" when it began to rain.  These are daily-drivers, NOT "trailer-queens"..The Chevelles and Mustangs lit out at the first drop of rain like  roaches when you turn the lights on.....
