We discuss the effect of strong electron-vibron interaction and static or dynamic Jahn-Teller distortion on the electronic properties of the A nC 60 family, where A is alkali metal and $0\leq n\leq 6$. Repulsive electron-electron correlations are expected for even n, but attractive ones for odd n. Such a model seems able to make compatible weak electron correlations for n=3 fairly strong correlations for n=1 and an insulating behavior for n=2 or 4.
