The Rocky Mountain AMC Club has a long and rich history in the State of Colorado. It was started in 1977 by two local Denver residents as an official chapter of The Classic AMX Club, International. At that time, the name was The Rocky Mountain AMX Club and it was just for the lovers of the two-seat sports car from AMC who reside in the beautiful mountainous state of Colorado.
In the early 1990s, The Rocky Mountain AMX Club, still going strong decided to broaden its scope and take in members with interests in all AMC cars from 1955 to 1987. This included Rebels, Ramblers, Americans, Classics, Javelins, Hornets, Gremlins, Concords, Spirits, Eagles and even AMC Jeeps. This expansion more than doubled the size of the club overnight to over 50 people. Over the years, the club has produced a small, local newsletter to inform the Colorado membership of hobby news and events on the local, regional and national level. They have also put on a local Show and Shine every year in the Denver area and even has hosted an AMC national event four times. We are Colorado Non-Profit Corporation. Our charter states that we are here to help anyone interested in the preservation and restoration of any AMC car.
Many in The Rocky Mountain AMC Club are into the high performance AMC cars. Stock, Custom or modified cars. Some have been involved with track racing, some drag racing , some no racing at all. Membership ranges from blue collar folks to professional people from all walks of life in the state of Colorado. It is a pleasant mixture of people and the AMC cars they enjoy, however they enjoy them. Some members restore the cars stock, some customized. All of these people and their AMC cars enjoy the hobby from racing, to just showing to just driving--AMC cars. This club is all AMC, and only AMC.
A great wealth of experience and information is in the Rocky Mountain AMC Club. Werner Fruhwirth has been into AMC cars most all of his life and has tons of experience to share with fellow Colorado members. Werner has over 10 AMC cars, from AMXs to a Matador X and was once a parts manager for a couple different local Denver AMC dealers years ago. He has a lot of knowledge of AMC parts and the cars themselves. He has a fairly big personal collection of AMC literature and scale models and toys. By appointment, he is happy to share his collection with fellow AMC fans.
More than a dozen of our local members have had their AMC cars featured nationally in books, magazines, on trading cards and in calendars. Two beautiful AMC cars that were featured on the cover of a recent AMC musclecar book are owned by local clubmembers. And many have AMC cars that are serious national trophy winners and excellent examples of show quality restorations. And our members are always having fun restoring or racing new AMC cars to the area.
