While test a 2014 Chrysler 300H Varvatos Luxury Edition it brought back memories of the designer and performance cars have graced American

Varvatos, by the way, is the noted American contemporary fashion who not only lends his name to the he OKs and designs the numerous style and special touches. The result is down one of the best looking on the road today.

As for using names for cars, it’s new. Ford enhanced the footprint” practice in the mid-1970s ala Bauer Fords and Lincoln Vs, the latter featuring four fashion designers: Blass, Givenchy and Pucci. (See Lincoln’s designer trend dates back to 1968 Cartier, the world famous maker, added a nice to the center dashboards of the big Lincoln

However, before Lincoln designer full bore, were other surprising specifically, American Motors (AMC) and its family of less cars.

AMC’s efforts around the Hornet, Gremlin, and Matador, starting with one of the looking mid-sized wagons of the in the 1972 and 1973 Hornet Special designer Gucci appeared, with special and exterior badges.

AMC Gucci Hornet Sportabout were, well, loud. The Sportabouts were available in and 1973, with nearly sold.

There may not have a “Montalban Cordoba,” but the millions of sold came with the of what I feel is one of the most car advertising campaigns ever. by the way, released a Frank Edition Imperial in 1981-1983, but the looking car was short lived due to the that manufacturers were its large luxury cars.
