Cohort Pic(k) of the Day: 1977 AMC AMX With Factory Tent

Rooftop pop-up tents are all the rage these days, but back in the seventies camping tents that facilitated sleeping in hatchbacks was a popular thing. But this shot of a Hornet-based AMX sporting one with the AMC logo was quite a find, by Matt Z. I suspect very, very few of these tents survived, and matching it up with an AMX makes for a terrific combination to show off at car shows.

Matt shot another rather unusual camper there too:

I’ve never seen one of these Chevy S-10 based units before. Looks like a significant wheelbase extension was involved.
