Hot: Gucci-Edition Hornet Interior!
By Jen Dunnaway
If you think that high-end designer trim packages on limited-edition vehicles is some new thing, you’re dead wrong. Back in the day, AMC was all over that, and personally I think they made it a little less boring than the current offerings (like Hyundai’s yawn-worthy Prada edition Genesis sedan. I mean really, what’s so Prada about it? Woo, it’s got leather seats–big deal). At the Tom Mack AMC auction this weekend at Lowe’s Motor Speedway, Rich Truesdell spotted this heavy-on-the-green 1973 Gucci edition Hornet Sportabout. Rich thought it was hideous, but I like ugly things–and I totally want this! Come on, how often do you see a car with emerald green carpeting? I’d make this my Fremont car in a second.
