Leno Drives the Playmate of the Year, 1968 AMC AMX in pink

Cars have a history and this one has a more sordid and interesting history than most. It was given to the Playboy Magazine Playmate of the Year in 1968, repainted several times, and purchased by the current owner in 2010. He then struggled to get a title for the car because the Playmate who owned it went to prison.

Interesting, to say the least. Check out this AMC AMX, the American Motor Company’s answer to the Corvettes and Mustangs of the era.
