Win Some, Lose Some Dept. — 1983 Renault Alliance

Win Some, Lose Some Dept. — 1983 Renault Alliance

Although this isn’t exactly a car pic, it’s certainly related. This sign was photographed just outside the Village of Perry three or four years ago, in front of what used to be the used car lot of the local American Motors dealership. Keep in mind, a little over three years ago was the summer of 2009. American Motors went out of business in 1988 — that’s 21-or-so years of abandoned sign sitting there, fading in the sun. I can’t believe some collector hadn’t scooped up the sign, or at the very least, that some thug hadn’t vandalized it. American Motors had a great history, and seeing that we’re upon the 25th anniversary of its demise, I think we’ll feature some interesting (in both good and bad ways) old AMC cars here in this spot from time-to-time, starting soon.
