Best looking one I’ve seen in a long while. This Datsun 260Z has a fully independent suspension, rack and pinion steering, a strong 162 hp overhead cam straight six and about 3000 lbs. Truly a classic.
Bob Nixon, that is, designed the AMC Gremlin by lopping off the rear of an existing model. Apparently a good, solid economy car with a large range of engines, from a two liter Audi four to a five liter V8. Approximately the same length as a VW Beetle, road tests of the time said it handled well and was quick. Still, not a good decade for Nixons.
Mid 1970s Citroen SMs in front of a typical Mid-Century Modern home in Palm Springs, California, when I visited a few years ago.
