AMO Home Page

     Welcome to the Peach State AMO website.  Please take a few minutes to look at our various pages.  On this main page you will find our past newsletters for your enjoyment as well as some of our members cars who have had shinning moments of late.

Our members cars page is full of pictures and information about our American Motors rides.
On the membership/notices you will find an application to join us as well items either wanted or for sale.  We have also added an upcoming shows page with information on car shows you may want to attend. The regional and national show picture pages have lots of photos from events over the past few years (and with lots of pictures it may take a few seconds to load, be patient)

The links page has interesting information on AMC cars as well as various vendors with lots of goodies for your “classic”. There is also a list of AMO affiliated clubs with web sites as well.

     Peach State AMO is the Georgia chapter of The American Motors Owners Associaton, (AMO) a large group of AMC & Jeep Owners and fans throughout North America. AMO recognizes and is dedicated to the preservation and enjoyment of every 1958 to 1988 American Motors Vehicle.

Peach State AMO is also the Georgia membership arm of the AMO. You don’t even need to own an AMC product to be a member of either Peach State AMO or The American Motors Owners Association.

ws54_gceiDoug Noland’s 1970 AMX was voted “Best of Show” at the Mopars for Big Daddy event in Ocala, Fl on November 1, 2008
In August 2009 Jim Graubard and Ron Frost brought Jim’s 1968 AMX up to Nashville to shoot a segment for Powerblock TV’s Musclecar show.  It took 8+ hours of filming to get the three minutes of footage that will be used for their “flashback” episode on the show which aired  on April 17th/18th 2010






Bud Turner & Bobbie Mistrettas 1977  Pacer Zippy was recently featured
in a multi-page article in the May, 2009 issue of Hemmings Classic Cars.
This unbleiveable car has gone over 300,000 miles and still counting!!


ws71Jeff & Theresa Barfield’s 1969 Javelin SST was recently in the movie “We Are Marshall” as Matthew McConaughey’s car he drove throughout the movie.





Jeff Puras is in action with one of his Spirits.  Involved in NASA (National Auto Sports Association)
racing at various tracks throughout the southeast.  Road Atlanta, just a short tow from Jeff’s home
in Dacula, GA is home track for this racer.  This car was built by Irv Hoerr for the IMSA RS series.
He campaigned the car for a couple of years successfully and the car was  then sold and went through a
succession of owners, finally ending up with Jeff.  Jeff teams with George Doughtie who is the main force
in keeping this Spirit on the go.  George and Jeff also hold the distinction of probably the only two people
ever to drive an  AMX/3 at speed at the Road Atlanta race course.

In 2007 Jim Graubard brought his 1968 AMX to a special show
for review by  Chip Foose of the TV show

In 2008 he returned with his 1972 Javelin AMX
