1970 AMC GremlinReview
Fun, Unique, Cheap, And Reliable Begs You To Drive It. — mine had been sitting for 15 years before i got it and it fired up and drove right away. of course I went and replaced all the worn items and redid the brakes. the parts for these are cheap and they have a good following on ebay for specific non auto store parts. Mine ran with no problems for 2 years and 7000 miles when the water pump gave out( i should have replaced it in the first place) other than that the car is solid and the engine is unstopable. It could pull 100 mph on the freeway in 103 degree weather, while it would overheat like crazy it never blew up. I then when and swaped in a V8 and made it a drag car, i sometimes regret this because it was such a sweet little comuter car.
Primary Use: Commuting to work
Pros: very unique
Cons: back seat is pretty much worthless

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
