Kim Du Toit is guilt of…. something. Look below if you dare:

That’s a ’74 AMC Gremlin. Or as I like to say; “a total &*@(^^ piece of &^(^@^$!”

I have an inexhaustible well of hate for the AMC Gremlin. It’s not a car, it’s a freak of bad design dredged from unfathomable depths of suck. That fact that people voluntarily bought those things proves we are all doomed. They’re America’s Trabant with a side chaser of rust and weeping engineers. It’s almost worse than the Trabant because at least the Trabant was created by oppressed minions who had no choice while presumably free men created the AMC’s disaster. What you’re looking at is Detroit’s ball sack shoved into the forehead of innocent American drivers.

Lets face it, the 1970’s were not a great time. The AMC arrived the same time as the 55 MPH speed limit. The law ripped the heart out of America and Detroit’s failures took a dump in the chest wound.

I don’t care who is draped across it or what she looks like… if there’s an AMC Gremlin in the photo it’s gross.

I do feel sympathy for the girl. Unless she’s a serial killer she deserves better. Some asshole made her pose next to an abomination. Probably she’s at the rear wheel well trying to hide the rust that sprang forth at that very spot. Those monstrosities began to rust the day they were misted with their first light rain.

    I just wanna know what the hell a “Travant” is. There was a shitty little Commie car called a Trabant, but I’ve never heard of the other. Did they change the name for export?

    IIRC, the only thing a Gremlin was good for was robbing the steering gear as it fit a CJ5 jeep. Or was it the Pacer??? I’m old and don’t care anymore…..

      I had no idea there were parts overlap between a CJ5 and a Gremlin. That’s why every time I was in one I thought “this thing handles like a Jeep”. 🙂

    Oooh, Edna? That’s harsh!

    Would not turn down a 401-XR.
    But those go for 60K+.
    Sixty grand for a Gremlin, ahghghghgh, NO.

    That is a pretty F’ing sweet looking Gremlin. For some reason it looks better that a normal Gremlin. And speaking of sweet looking Gremlins…
