    Amc gremlin

    I grew up with a dilapidated dragged-out Gremlin in the backyard. Love 'em!

    Is it still AMC powered, or did he swap in a SBC ?

    A 1uz in that Wayne's world mobile is a waste of a decent engine... I have an x-uncle-in-law that collects this garbage... He's been 'building' a drag one since mammals first grew legs, IMHO using one these for anything but a lawn ornament or a movie is a complete waste of resources. Then again, he would say the same about an '86.... But as they are, my car would destroy his... Oh yeah because mine works.

    Buying one of these is a bit like saying... 'hell no! I don't ever want to get laid again!'

    Bryan has been around long enough to know that these are actually lame, and not just ironic.

    It has a AMC 360 V8.





    He just sold the engine and is building a 300hp inline six on side drafts, with a Tremac 5 speed.
