Not really Carrie's car but art imitates life.....

Feel free & click here to sing along from Carrie's actual song:

Right now he's probably slow dancing with a bleach blond tramp,
and she's probably getting frisky...right now, he's probably buying her some 
fruity little drink cause she can't shoot whiskey...

Right now, he's probably up behind her with a pool-stick, showing her how to
shoot a combo...

And he don't know...

That I dug my key into the side of his pretty little souped up 4 wheel
drive, carved my name into his leather seats...
I took a Louisville slugger to both headlights,
slashed a hole in all 4 tires...

Maybe next time he'll think before he cheats.

Right now, she's probably up singing some white-trash version of Shania 
Right now, she's probably saying "I'm drunk" and he's a thinking that he's 
gonna get lucky, Right now, he's probably dabbing on 3 dollars worth of that 
bathroom polo...
And he don't know...

Well, Carrie Underwood's extremely popular (and catchy!) tune above about
her boyfriend cheating you are probably wondering what it has to do with
anything AMC. Art imitates life and vice versa sometimes and recently I
bought a 1974 AMX (my 334th!) that was unfortunately caught in crossfire
between boyfriend and girlfriend and came out on losing end. It's a Maxi
Blue car with white vinyl top, nicely optioned, 360/AT that had basically
what Carrie wrote about, happen to it. Yup, Louisville slugger took out
windshield, 1/4 passenger glass, all four tail lights, to name a few things;
knife took out the tires and some of roof. 

This AMX took a beating with a wood cutting axe, which is still in trunk.

What I would like to do is play Dr Phil here to the warring couple. You
know, Eddie The Love Cupid, since Valentines Day here, complete with my own
Dear Abby Advice.

First, you two sit down on your plaid polyester couch with the cigarette
burns and spaghetti stains on it (ooh, is that still edible?) and look into
each other's bloodshot eyes. Go ahead dear, run your hand across his beard,
pick out the dried Skoal if you have to. And Bo, (I can call you Bo, eh
bro?) how about a little shoulder massage for the little, eh, lady. A nice
soothing lotion perhaps on her shoulders, maybe with a refreshing scent like
Pine O Pine, so when she walks around the trailer she also deodorizes it.
Tell her something romantic like 'Arby's is open late' or 'you remember the
first time you beat her at nine-ball in pool'. Make a sexy game of it. Guess
how many teeth there are between you two. Loser will have to buy the first
pitcher. Take a romantic walk down the muddy road that leads to your trailer
park at midnight, sharing a Pall Mall and stick of gum. And promise here you 
won't start a polygamist compound.

As for the AMX, as I write, I ended up parting it out as the rust was way worse 
than the photos appear. Gave it a little dignity though with new glass all the way around to help 
rain stay out of inside car. Car was also built 3rd day of production in 
1973 on August 3rd, 1973, so ultra early. And hope the guy who took a
15 pound wood cutting axe to the car trying to kill his old cheating lady
will realize he got lucky by not hitting her with that weapon......



Yes, that is actual wood cutting axe that came with car there he tried to kill her with.....
