  2. When I was in college (35 years ago...) there was a guy in a puke-green Gremlin who would challenge all the frat boys and their Porsches & BMWs to race, usually stoplight to stoplight. It usually took the frat boys a while to realize he had wheelie bars on the back of his car and would absolutely smoke them. No idea what was under the hood but pretty sure it wasn't stock.

    1. You could get a V-8 in a Gremlin.

    2. My cousin bought a Gremlin X brand new in 72 and it had a 401 V8 in it. It was a screamer.

  4. High School buddy's Mom had a light blue Gremlin X with "fake" Levi Interior, it looked like cotton Levi's but it was actually a synthetic fire retardant material, it was pretty cool interior, red stitching, brass rivets, red Levi tags, seats had pockets on the front and back of the seats and each door panel had a pocket too. 304 V8 with a 727 Torqueflight trans and it hauled ass.
