  • Ben Vaughn is an American musician, music producer and a longtime Rambler enthusiast. Vaughn grew up in Collingswood, New Jersey, and his interest in music began at age 6 when his uncle gave him a Duane Eddy record. The "Ben Vaughn Combo" released two albums and toured the U.S. from 1983 to 1988. Vaughn then had a solo career, 1988–1994, recording four albums and touring Europe and the United States. Vaughn is a longtime Rambler automobile fan and in 1988 recorded El Rambler Dorado on his Blows Your Mind album. As a musician, he is perhaps best known for his "Rambler '65" album when Vaughn decided to "cut out the middleman," as he puts it, and recorded an entire album in his 1965 Rambler American. Vaughn turned his car into a makeshift studio by putting the recording equipment inside his car. Whether it was a gimmick or an act of showmanship, but according to most reviews, the music he created inside his car is "timeless" rock roll. The Rambler '65 24-minute music video for this album also includes vintage AMC TV advertising clips. As a producer, Vaughn made albums for artists such as Charlie Feathers and Los Straitjackets.
