A Living Language: 1969 AMC Rebel SST Wagon

I love how the term "rat rod" has evolved to mean pretty much anything with faded paint. But then how can you fault a seller who begins his description, "Here you go," as if he's just been waiting there for you all along, certain in the knowledge that you'd show up eventually. And who, on the subject of that faded paint, explains that it's "starting to show a real nice natural patina – some folks think it has been painted flat red." Right. Check out the five-thousand-dollar matte paint job I just got for my AMC station wagon! Wait, you thought it was a Lambo? Nah man, it's an AMC! Yeah, really! Still, ultimately dude is one hundred percent correct: this thing is freaking awesome and worth every penny of the (less than) three thousand bucks it's gonna go for.
