Out of Action
Overlooked, overcooked and ‘over-chooked’ – (barely) surviving classics from our motoring past, sniffed out by AMC readers.
Some muscle cars are bought by loving owners who pamper them like members of the family. Other muscle cars, though, aren’t so lucky. Some get stolen, smashed or thrashed. Some get parked and lost under a layer of dust in an old shed, others get left outside to brave the elements and slowly rust away. Sad, but true.
We eyeball plenty of beautifully maintained and/or fully restored muscle classics in AMC, but as serious car pervs we have to admit there’s few things more intriguing – or exciting – than spotting an old classic in a paddock, or a shed, or under a shady tree, that’s seen better days and in need of some TLC. Some are beyond saving, but they all have a story to tell.
So, get out your cameras and start snapping some old muscle cars you come across in your travels that are definitely Out of Action, or close to it. We don’t want to know where they are and we won’t be publishing locations, because above all we must respect people’s privacy. We just want to see some good, clean pics of these forgotten cars and short personal stories to go with them (see contact details below).
So get to it and let’s see what hidden treasures we can find! For this edition our intrepid readers have stumbled across some more little gems to share with us.
This issue’s Out Of Action winner will receive this beaut 1:18 scale muscle car model from Classic Carlectables. AMC will contact this issue’s winner soon with further details. So, keep sending in those great photos and short stories for your chance to win!
