Good job Andy, they look great! Looks like the Javelin got the jump off the line as well. Thanks for posting.
Last fall I was contacted to build some pinewood cars for a new Cub Scout PSA. They wanted some “real looking” cars to use in their commercial. When I asked what cars they would like built for this, the director said he wanted some muscle cars, like the new Corvette. I explained I already had some plans for a 2009 Dodge Charger and a 2013 Shelby GT500. I emailed him copies of the plans I already had, he liked them. I did a quick plan of the 2015 Corvette Z06, and I had a plan for the 71 Javelin /AMX that I included, the director loved both of the additional cars. So there we had a 2015 GM, a 2013 Ford, a 2009 Dodge and a 1971 AMC (no favoritism here, OK there may be some). Three modern muscle cars along with a very cool car from the past. I built the cars and they loved them.
The commercial is now out, along with a lot of other advertising resources. Here is the link to the YouTube video:
This is a clip of the video, notice which car is ahead… Even in the ad picture.
Here is one of the ads with the cars on them.
So there may be a new generation that will see the AMC’s in action.
