I wonder if it is the same gremlin in the roadkill episode that was towing the prius? I hope so. I will be looking for it on my dvr I record all the new episodes of engine masters.

Yep, its the same gremlin, One of the film crew bought it and drove it for a few years, and a couple months ago they got it back on the show and made it into the hemi gremmy. unfortunately they basically had to chop up the gremlin and drop it on top of a purpose built chassis for everything to fit, but its still pretty cool.

They dont put the episodes up on youtube anymore so you either have to pay for their subscription service or find it on tv to watch it.

Yeah, RCR is wildly popular in the youtube car space, I knew this video was incoming, so I was dreading their usual "factual shortcomings", but the guy who did this one, Roman, is a huge amc fanboy and actually did his research pretty well.

Cool video about VAM and the sold in Mexico American Motors cars. Unless you’re fluent in Spanish, you’ll want to turn on closed captions and the translate feature. I also put the playback speed at 75% so I could keep up with the subtitles.

Not sure if this counts or not. Took the Bird to a car show Sat. & a radio station sat up almost right in front of me. They called out the Eagle on the air. Admittedly, they called it a Spacer the first time ;D, but at least they got the AMC part right! They DID get it right later!

Just finished watching a sci-fi movie called "Short Circuit" about a robot that comes to life. They have a bunch of (military) jeeps & some M-715s (Kaiser Jeep 5/4 pickups).
