Back when these cars first came out, I was at Willow Springs watching a Alfa Romeo event. This big CBS tractor trailer rolls up. The back door opens and a F-40 backs out. This fellow gets in, fires it up and cranks ( I guess personally installed stereo). Does maybe 2 hot laps. Rolls it back in the trailer and drives away. These cars were not street legal if I recall. Anyway’s, it was quite a thrill to see one along with all those SWEET ALFAS!

What music is played in this movie? Really like the eighties feel of it.

I have an idea for an episode. My friend grew up around Alfa Romeos. His Italian father had a 58 spider, a bunch of 60’s spiders, and 70’s sedans. His son, my friend was given the 58 Giulietta, rebuilt it in the 80’s and is finishing rebuilding it now, Motor just went in.
His dad Hector, had lost his automotive way and had veered into the evil ways of Lexus. But just this month, perhaps inspired by his son, or perhaps by his son’s daughter Giulia, took the plunge and bought a new Giulia! Hector is back!

Glad to hear Hector got his automotive soul back!

The only thing that bothers me about this site is the negativity guitarslinger provides. He always says something negative which tarnished the website experience. It’s like telling a beautiful woman she’s beautiful except her teeth are a bit uneven
Like a woman it’s about the total package, and this website is the total package.

This is a beautiful video that communicates perfectly the strong guttural feelings cars share with us. Another wonderful piece of art. Thank you. This made my day.

Shape, size/weight, quality/craftsmanship… 30 years of development later – where are the improvements?
What a glorious piece of a ‘utility vehicle’. Well captured in this clip.

I sold my 1980 AMG MB April of this year to someone in Texas that appreciate the car. I sold it dirt cheap! I hope he is going to make this car perfect!

1) The correct term boys is … Estate .. not wagon ! 2) Though the music sucks its apposite to the car’s era .. so two thumbs up 3) The video ? Decent 4) The car ? If you’ve ever driven any of the ‘ Hammer ‘ iterations you know damn full well the beasts are awesome ( one of the few cars the word actually applies to with nary a modicum of hyperbole ) 5) The owner ? Hard to make final judgment based on a 5 minute plus video but from what I’m seeing and hearing … I… Read more »

… oh … and screw the ‘ Tastefully ‘ bit .. this is a ‘ Hammer ‘ not some fragile exotic .. meant to be driven like one . So do the AMG Hammer dance .. rude , lewd and totally lascivious 😎

It must have been 1989, I was a teenager, and was crazy about motorbikes. Back then, 300km/h on road-legal bikes was a bit of an impossibility, so there was this small Japanese bike magazine (and this rider who was absolutely obsessed with 300km/h) decided to take on the challenge. I was super excited about it, so bought every issue and followed the progress. I recall they used GSX-R1100 slingshot as a base, modified but totally road-legal. Of course, they can’t test it in Japan, so they shipped it to Germany. Just such an excitement for a teenager, you see, and… Read more »

Errr … all bets are that car’d ” Rock You Like a Hurricane ” right out of existence

Short but what a great film. Terrible wheels but otherwise what a car. Even better a prospect than the 500E. Engine noise is amazing.
Now people drive cars twice as heavy with less utility than this.

The wheels are apposite to the era and what belongs on the car . Anything else would be just plain wrong

Wheels are period..best of what AMG had to offer. Lighter weight then their one piece counter part and also provided enough clearance for the uprated calipers/discs.

Great to see the wonderful roads of north Georgia! What an awesome wagon that looks very original and the engine note is sinister!

This must have been something special to own back in the day (hell, even today! .. :))

Nice piece on a quite unknow car.

Hey Guitar Slinger,

Though your style is often unpopular, we don’t ban you because you can be entertaining and informative at times and also we hate banning people.
But when you take it to a personal level, then we will ban you. So cut it out with the personal name calling.

To Guitar Slinger – I’m from generation P – for “Polite” – something you definitely are not 😉

” A quite unknown car ”

Perhaps to GenX/ GenY/ Snowflakes such as yourself … but to those of us of a certain age the Hammer’s are engrained into our memories … as well as our backsides if you’d ever driven one 😎
