light+texture, sometimes sound

I don’t go crazy over cars. Far from it. But I was drawn to this picture car, parked on the street as background for Anchorman 2. I liked its boxy shape and glossy paint, and even (oddly) admired the suspension, which struck me as perky. But the best part, for me, was the font. I have a weakness for such things.

The car wrangler was standing around and we chatted a bit about the origins of this car. It didn’t handle or sell well, and eventually its parent company, AMC (also responsible for The Gremlin) was absorbed by bigger fish. Still, I wouldn’t mind taking it on a test drive around the block.
