Made it through the driving exam in one piece without catching fire!


No steering dampener made the front end oscillate and rip the wheel out of your hands.  Rear hatch/window unapologetically fell out on the freeway and smashed into bits.  Doors NEVER closed properly.

Not Active

One Of The Worst Cars On The American Market, At The Time. — Could pull donuts in the parking lot of the pick n' save before the plows got there. Very valuable resource for how to handle an out of control car. Drove this from 1982-1985. Have nothing nice to say about the Gremlin. Basically a combat jeep with a fancy designed frame. Engine was a 'reject block' from other auto makers at the time. Not good. Not good at all. Had an 8-track unit installed.

Show Car By TylerGremlinKing

One of my two Gremlins, this is the go and show car. It's one of those cars you can just take out and enjoy. It even got honorable mention for the 1970s class at the local Labour Day car show! Read More
