Crocodile Dundee (the first) has a Gremlin (X even) in it.

It's the scene where he is talking to the ladies of the night.

I haven't watched it, it was posted on one of the VAM pages on spacebook. Supposed to be a bunch of VAMs in this movie.

Each year they have the Great Lakes AMC meet on the day after the Woodward Cruise in Livonia MI.  Someone made a very complete video of this year’s meet and posted it on YouTube:

Mild build of a 258 engine on Powernation.  I’m sure the header they used would never fit on an Eagle lol

Fun article from Hagerty about cars that were on The Price is Right in the 70s/80s. The first car listed is an 82 Eagle 2 door sedan.

Powernation usually does some interning builds. My question would be the carb, if it is actually reliable and can handle the mandated ethanol.
