    I had a 73, that was handed down to me. I had ridiculous/stupid fun with that car. Although mine was a 6, there was a V8 version around town that would regularly beat up on the local talent.

    The hatred thing against AMC cars (they were -very- successful with Jeep and AM General, whose histories are typically ignored by mainsteamist half-wits) is not really about the cars; it’s about a certain percentage of people who have a mental illness which causes them to enjoy hating another entity. A component of that mental illness is ‘delusion of grandeur’ whereas they think their favorite cars are impeccable or beyond reproach. eg: Mercedes, Lexus etc. Truth is, there is no perfect car; a perfect car would run forever, flawlessly. Fact is, AMC scooped the industry with their well engineered and safe lowest price car (five years in a row) -and- offered the best warranty at that time making it -impossible- to purchase a lemon. Finally, when one compares Gremlin to it’s competition, it’s obvious the hatred conjured up by certain other people is a genuine mental illness, whereas the others seem almost bullied by doing so.

    My husbands 50th birthday is coming up and he would love his first car back, a metalic green gremlin with a hemi engine. Can u find one?

    My 74 gremlin was fast out of the hole;I know this because my dad raced a corvette with it at an intersection. (thanks DAD.)
    I remember taking a trip from carrollton tx. to odessa tx. on 1/2 a tank-round trip; no, I didn’t stop to fill up on the way.. Did you know that if you pushed on the bumper while filling it, you could put 26 gallons in one? (burping the tank)
    I also remember being able to do a doughnut on the suburban street in front of my house and that it could clear train tracks and very deeply rutted roads…
    I miss that car….
