Punk As Heck: 1982 AMC Spirit GT

The pejorative term punk was adopted by followers of the alternative music scene from the mid 70s typified by bands like the Clash, Ramones, or Sex Pistols.  Followers of the punk lifestyle sport mohawks, leather jackets, bad attitudes and (apparently) awesome AMC Spirit customs.  Find this 1982 AMC Spirit offered for $2,000 in SF Bay Area, CA via craigslist.  Tip from Kaibeezy.

The overall stance of this Spirit GT is sweet — and the side pipes match the magnum 500s rally wheels.  It is all very custom and very punk.

A 258 cubic inch inline-6 isn’t going to be the most powerful engine you could shove between the shock towers, but it should be torquey and consume fuel like Keith Richards drinks Jack Daniels.
