Action Out of
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 de nitely Out of Action, or close to it.
We don’t want to know where they are and we won’t be publishing speci c locations, because above all we must respect people’s privacy. Please note: we don’t publish images we suspect involved the act of trespassing. We just want to see some good, clean pics of these forgotten cars and short personal stories to go with them.

Found this in Bali. Thought you might like to put it in out of action – 74,000 miles on clock. The sills are a bit rusty! Paul Welcome to the Northern Rivers region of New South Wales. Here, if the road conditions don’t vibrate your car to bits, the sub-tropical environment will rust it away. Anyway, the XB Falcon is located in scrub. It appears to have had a respray at some point. The XC Falcon is currently sitting in a paddock just out of Lismore. Michael Hi AMC, Here’s some pics. Owner happy for them to be shared. Jon
