And here is still another message from another
Canadian.  I wonder where it went? Anyone know more?

"Yes, I can tell you a little about me and what I can remember about the AMX. I was born and raised in Montreal, Quebec. I started drag racing in 1961 at our local drag strip. I also raced at Deseronto, Ontario, Milton, VT, Quebec Dragway, in Pont Rouge, Quebec, and a hand full of 1/8th mile tracks around Quebec and Ontario. I ran some stock class cars, a blown gas AA/C dragster and an injected C/D dragster. 

The Hurst prepped AMX was owned by MacDonald Rambler of Montreal, Quebec, Canada.I do not have any record of the VIN but I was told there were 52 made and only two went to Canada. This one and one out west, maybe Calgary area. We built it to run SS/E class. It ran a best of 10.98 @ 131 MPH.  If memory serves me right the record at the time was 10.90 @ 129 MPH. The car weighed only 3050 lbs. It had 4.44:1 gears and I wanted to run 5.12:1 and a bit taller slick. I think it would have been able to run below the record. We just couldn't find any.

I was hired to build, tune and drive the car for them. The car was called the "PRO" since I was the only SS guy in our area hired to drive someone elses car. It was one of the most exciting and fun cars to drive.We only had the car a sort time, (about 4 months I believe), then it was stolen.I have no idea what ever hapened to that little AMX. I sure would like to have and race it now. I will always have a special place in my drag racing heart for the 1969 AMX.

James Burt"

Any info on the car or dealership would be greatly appreciated.
