Is that a Satalite?
12/10/09 at 20:31:14
 
I walked outside the bowling alley lastnight and overheard a group of people talking about how great that green 4 door plymouth would be for the demo derby.  Smiley So I chimed in saying I think its an AMC Rebel... to which they argued with me until one of them walked over to the car and came back saying it was a Rebel. By then I was already back inside from taking my smoke break. I don't get angry anymore I just shake my head and walk away. They still don't know it was my car. Roll Eyes As Ron White has said... "you can't fix stupid"

Yep been asked how rare the "Rebel" pack is on my "Road Runner" a few times. Says Rebel in several places so it must be some sort of trim level option......Idiots

Call it what you want, it looks great in the BBO color, My 69 BBG Rebel, has been called  
anything other then a Rebel Grin Fairlane, Charger, RoadRunner, How does that handle without the wing on the back when you get over 150? Chevelle, Galixe, GTO Grin Grin Funnier yet it still has the stock 290 2bbl Smiley SH

Thanks. Just dropped a fresh 360 in it over Thanksgiving. It's a lot of fun seeing people do double takes.  Think I might add the Dixie horns just to throw them off some more.  Grin
  Got a picture of your four door?

That would be a fun car to drive! I've got my eyes on a 77 Hornet AMX 258 4spd I'd like to do that to.  Cool My Rebel has 90,000 on the clock and I got it with 77,000 haha I do drive it everywhere! Cheesy Even the headlight buzzer still works. It is a radio delete, so it's kinda rough on longer trips. But I just get a small boom box and crank it up!  Grin

You know a 232 and a 3 speed makes a nice driver as it is as well. SH

 Vic 360 tell them it's not a Pinto it's a Converse High Top Promo Car. I have a 70 Gremlin and most of the time some idiot is yelling "Waynes World" crap at me.....

Speaking of Pintos blowing up in the rear, that's what ford gets for naming their car after a bean.  Cheesy
