The name Geen Remmen was given when the car was collected in the Netherlands with a big label on the steering wheel for the workshop staff, just sort of stuck.

Thanks to all for your continuing support. Updates on progress fairly often on www.p2pamx.com and we'll try to keep an event blog during the rally.

The organisers will be tracking the cars during the event and we should be able to have a link up to the cars location during the rally.

Many thanks,

Jim

Great Day testing on Friday, check out the video got a great shot:

Also Erik Carlsson's memorial service video is back up on You Tube:

My old two stroke 96 features second in line to the museum car, mine is the one with most stickers, and that is my bald patch in a suit early on

Today we leave for Morocco and a longer test on the fringes of the Sahara. Fairly confident this will be the first AMC car to visit Africa, can anyone confirm this?

Could be the first AMX on African soil, but who knows ?
I have seen a few older AMC Jeeps and a Concord driving around in Morocco when I was travelling there.
Some Rambler Renault (Classic "CKD" kits assembled in Belgium) found their way into Morocco, Algeria, Tunisia and Egypt through Renault dealerships in the late sixties.
AMC's were assembled in Durban, South Africa. First Nash/Hudson in the fifties, later under Rambler nameplate during the sixties/seventies I think.
Probably not that many around anymore these days, but you can definately encounter AMC's and Ramblers on the African continent.
