Mom’s Little Hot Rod

This car has been in my family a long time. My dad bought this 1968 AMC Rebel SST with a Typhoon 343 engine for my mom, although she was only 5ft tall. In order to drive the car she had to move the seat all the way forward and then had my father put a 2” block taped to the gas pedal.

The Jan & Dean song “Little old lady from Pasadena” fit her to the T. My parents are both gone now and the car is mine, this car will be in the family forever. And now I can share the stories of this fun car and their grandparents with my children and one day I will pass it onto them.
