I'm watching a 2013 episode of Chasing Classic Cars called "Packards."  The host is drooling over a 1937 Packard that is being sold by an estate. In the same garage as the Packard  is a yellow, either a 1977 or 78 Gremlin. I'm Surprised the host didn't walk right past the Packard and snap up the Gremlin.   :rotfl:

I don't think they even mentioned the Gremlin.

The Wall Street Journal takes notice of a Gremlin collector.  It would have been nice if they had some better shots of the collection.

You can see the Gremlin in the background a few times in this snippet from that show

A bit of a thread killer...

I love that site. But then again, my Eagle is listed there too :)

Ease of entry into a Gremlin was much better than a Vega or Pinto.  :-)

I found a green Gremlin which I got for my ex-wife's mother (She LOVED it) The 1 bbl carb was bad and it didn't charge (alt light controlled the regulator in the early ones) and it had no spark (points were fired). I adapted a 2 bbl from a Chev 283 to fit and that made it pretty reliable.
AMC/Jeep gauges are for amusement only. Any correlation between them and reality is purely coincidental!
