already planning for next year, the Ring Brothers were discussing projects at SEMA, and talked about one of next years cars, a '72 Javelin AMX

Jim and Mike Ring, cofounders of the world renowned custom car build shop Ringbrothers announced that they will be undertaking an ambitious project to transform a 1972 AMC Javelin AMX into a one-of-a-kind Ringbrothers build in a only 12 months.

 The AMC Javelin build will be completed as part of a partnership with Ringbrothers and Prestone and will be unveiled in the Prestone booth at the 2017 SEMA Show.

The Rings have a long history with the Javelin they will be cutting up and transforming into one of their signature customized rides. When the Rings first laid eyes on this 1972 AMC Javelin AMX in their hometown, it was love at first sight. They were awestruck to see such an iconic car that had been dominating the short track, roll down the street of their small town of 600. On weekends, Mike Ring would wash the car for the owner and he was the last one to perform an oil change on the car before the Rings purchased it from the original owner.

“Jim and I have always wanted to build an AMX,” said Mike Ring, co-founder of Ringbrothers. “We’ve seen this particular car driving around our home town of Plain, Wisconsin since we were kids and we always loved it. The AMX was such a neat car, unlike anything else at that time.”

“Mike and I are thrilled to work with Prestone on this AMX build,” said Jim Ring, co-founder of Ringbrothers. “We always love to do things differently and it is tough to get more different than an AMC Javelin. Getting it built in a year will be a real challenge, but it is one that we’re looking forward to.”
