It was an economy car. As far as performance goes; it and the Gremlin were road raced, fitted with AMCs big v8, versus their typical straight six. The Gremlin was essentially a Matador, so it worked.

It's a touring or randoneur bike somebody swapped the bars on, and added a suspension seat and carbon wheels. It wouldn't look that bad if it still had the drops on it, maybe a road fork.
