1965 AMC Rambler Marlin TV Commercial

The first year for the AMC Rambler Marlin. Based on the Rambler Classic intermediate class car. originally designed to be a Rambler American. This car really might have taken off if it had been on the smaller car.....it could have been a great alternative to the Mustang.

The First AMC Pacer TV Commercial - 'Introducing, the AMC Pacer'

Ah, the hip and happenin' '70's. Now, the definition of hokey and cheesy. Some people just want to forget the 70's; some can't remember.

1966 AMC Rambler Classic station wagon TV commercial

During Mitt Romney's campaign to win the Michigan primary in February 2012, the Romney campaign bought one of my vintage AMC clips for use in their primary TV commercial. (Mitt's spot is called "Growing Up." You can find it here on YouTube.) If you watch the spot, the second shot shows a Rambler wagon pulling into a driveway. That's the clip his people bought from me. At this time, AMC was in big trouble. When Roy Abernethy took over after Mitt's dad, George Romney, left American Motors, he tried to compete directly with The Big Three in size and horsepower. He lost big time. This no-nonsense spot acknowledges that AMC knew the American public had dismissed it as a boring, economy car company. The goal was to get them to reconsider American Motors. I thought I'd take the opportunity to show you the whole TV commercial. It's been digitized and color-corrected with amore. I'd love to have this wagon today. It's appropriately named: a Classic!

'66 AMC Ambassador TV Commercial

From the Sammy Davis Jr. Show, here's a commercial for American Motors and it's big new "just like a Cadillac" Ambassador. Unfortunately, a lot more people wanted a real Cadillac in '66. Not the best quality. In public domain, from archive.org. For the best drives in your Ambassador, be sure to stop by www.weekenddriver.com ... the Weekend Driver website!
