1974 AMC Hornet Sportabout 258 c.i. 6
The engine leaked oil badly. You had to have a carton of oil in the back compartment. The front fenders rusted out. There wasn't much holding the fenders on the front end.
I loved this car. Too bad, I wrecked it. With rear wheel drive, doughnuts were easy on any iced or snow covered parking lot. There was tons of room for all my friends, and our gear. I wish that I still owned that car today.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

I just recently bought a (76) hornet. This car is the bomb. Uses very little oil, runs like a charm. I have not started any work on it yet, but I plan to. I got this car out of a storage, an old lady had it, (43 on the clock) at 80 miles per it begs for more. that's the only time I put the car through paces. Over the next two years I plan to fully restore this car. The back end sits a little high so I am going to have it lowered to the level of the front. I am going to modify the original paint three times, and I am going to my home town of Chicago and purchase a set of rims nobody has ever seen before. I am going to honor my ride. people will have a chance to grovel at it's tires.
