    If you find me a Chevy Monza, I'll find you a Gremlin. <img src=icon_smile_big.gif border=0 align=middle>

    Gremlins cool? NFW. they were plentiful short wheel base 2drs, that nobody wanted, hence dirt cheap. That one swallowed a 383 and Geet lived to tell the tale is more easily explained by the big sky theory than by any attribute in the gremlin ever had. Most of the ones in my neighborhood got chopped into modified dirt oval racers and got thrashed on Sat. nights (and none of them made it to the 80's forget the 90's)....as good a fate as any gremlin could hope for. If its gotta be early 70's make it a AMX/Javelin, in penske trans/am trim. bcr

    Being a dirt track guy that may also add to my attraction to the Gremlin. One of the very first IMCA modifieds was Gremlin bodied and cool. As a kid I remember seeing pics of the east coast modifieds, old Troyer Mud Busses w/Gremlin bodies WFC.

    the only word fit to say in the same sentence as AMX is Javelin!!!

    Back in the "Day" (circa 1976), two of the fastest cars in town were a V8 Vega owned by Billy (the midget) Desmute (yes he was a small person). And a SuperCharged AMX Javelin....complete with AMC engine.

    I hate to say it...but I saw some pretty cool looking Gremlins back then.

    im siding with bransone. gremlins are just cool. my dad had an orange monza. also a roadrunner. mom had a 70's cuda. and a 71 camaro. dad worked at the local chevy dealer in shiping/receiving for about 6 months once. i remember going there and they were unloading cars, and pushes me into a monza spyder. i remember the sound of the rear tires spinning in the parking lot. i always wonder about what those nice cars go through ebfore the owners get them now. 20 miles on the clocks. thats just unloading it and driving it to its parking spot in the lot! i had a friend who used to tell people i had put like 5k on my fastback. at stoplights.

    our neighbor had an 80 amx. she was dating a guy who had a delorean. which had been painted red. i never understood that. then a guy up the street had a detomaso pantera with a built 351. what a cool car.
