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.
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….)
I think those other vehicles are something called “Chevrolets”….(you can never account for taste, can you?)
This car looks great on the grass……
Next to a 1963 Rambler Classic 550. I’ve owned one of these, and I loved it…..
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 “orphan 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…..
