My First Car: '68 AMC Javelin, Dean Christianson, 74, Hernando

'68 AMC Javelin

This is a photo of my 1968 AMC Javelin I ordered from the factory. When it arrived they wanted some additional money for some items. I was attending Rutgers University in New Jersey at the time. My wife and I traveled across the Nevada desert with temperatures well into the 100s with no air conditioning. It was a basic model and the first year of production, but it handled well and was as close as I ever came to a "sporty" car!
