I'm going to try and do the Fort Wayne to Norwalk stretch just to see what it's like. Since I'm doing 2 other road tours this year I can't do the whole thing plus I've not heard much good about it which is why I want to see for myself how it runs.

Did the whole tour last year. Had a great time.

Saw maybe 20-25 AMC's.

Our AMX did just fine with the 360 although there was a custom Javelin that had an LS conversion

It's on my bucket list.  Don't think I'll make 2019.  Hoping it comes west some year.

I am planning on doing the whole tour in my 65 Marlin, this is my first year. I am coming from northern NY (right by the canadian border) and plan on leaving on thursday ,june 6th. I don't know about caravaning,but maybe we could cruise the tour as an AMC group, that would be awesome.

Uncalled for, in my opinion. I understand that some people are purists and want originality in their own car, but an LS engine is more modern and superior in every way. I have 2 AMC cars with nicely built 360's and a Corvette with its original LS1. If the man wants to put an LS engine in his own car, more power to him.

That's your opinion and you're entitled to it but for me the concept is blasphemy   Once you do that is is no longer an amc.  Same as putting a chevy engine in a ford, etc.....garbage
