ORIG­I­NAL OWNER STA­TUS

Muscle Car Review - - Letters -

I just read The Bot­tom End by Diego Rosen­berg in your Oct. 2018 is­sue [“Mus­cle Car Base­lines, Part 2: A Call for Con­sis­tency”]. I es­pe­cially en­joyed read­ing about how car guys are al­ways look­ing for the rar­ity in the car they have. I have to ad­mit I do the same thing. It’s brag­ging rights, plain and sim­ple. But what I have found as I show my Big Bad Or­ange 1970 AMX with Shadow Mask hood is that peo­ple aren’t that in­ter­ested in its be­ing re­port­edly one of 122. No, what gets every­one talk­ing is that I’m the orig­i­nal owner! Ev­ery car guy or car gal loves what they’ve got, whether it’s a Ca­maro, a Mus­tang, or a Mopar. I love them all, and it doesn’t have to be rare for me to ap­pre­ci­ate the car. For me it’s not the rar­ity that makes my car in­ter­est­ing, it’s the orig­i­nal owner sta­tus. How many of these 50-plus-year-old cars with the orig­i­nal owner are still out there? I’ve seen sev­eral in your mag­a­zine, I know they’re out there!

Wave to me as I go by in my orig­i­nal owner AMX, be­cause I drive it ev­ery­where. See ya on the road!
