The Last "Surviving?"
The infamous Pikeville N.C. AMC Dealership. You have heard the
rumors, or read about it on the list, here are a group of photographs taken
in May of 2002.
The owner is Mr. Robert Collier he tells me he and his
family had a long relationship with the AMC Corp. going back to the 1950's but he choose to end it
when Renault purchased part of AMC. Today I would by no means still
consider it still a Dealership, but they still sell a few parts, but
primarily like to sell complete cars. Mr. Collier shows up at various AMC car shows from time to time. He was in attendance in Kenosha for the
100th anniversary and a regular attendee at the shows hosted by Carolina
The famous Barry Goldwater AMX is today included in the cars owned by Mr.
Collier as are 2 of the Alabama Highway Patrol Javelins. I have not seen,
but he told me he also owned the Nash driven by Alec Baldwin and Kim
Basinger in the 1991 movie "The Marrying Man".
