|Though American Motors never approached the size of Detroit''s Big Three, it produced a long series of successful cars that were distinctive, often innovative and in many cases influential. This history examines AMC''s cars from the company''s formation in 1954 through its absorption by Chrysler in 1987. The Gremlin, Pacer and Eagle vehicles are examined in detail, as are the AMC custom cars of George Barris and Carl Green. The text details AMC''s 1980s involvement with the French firm Renault and the design legacy of that joint venture, which includes the Hummer. The full evolution of Jeep is covered from the 1960s through the 2000s.|
