  1. This and the 450slc were found on my Port Townsend trip, not is Seattle. This Gremlin is so ugly but so cool. Saw a Pacer the other day.

    1. I never really got why people think it's so ugly. I've always thought of it as a little muscle car hatchback, and nothing is really ugly about it. Except those taillights.
      Just wondering, did you get permission to take these pics? It looks like it's in someone's front yard behind the fence.

  2. I think every auto buff should have a gremlin in there yard. I'm partial to the earlier models. Ugly? Hell yes, but show horn a big 360 in there and she will fly. ;)

  3. I went to the door to ask if it was ok, but no one was home and the place was fairly inviting, so I just dicided to take a few shots since you rarely see a Gremlin outside of a show. This is about as cool as hatchback can get, and it looks mean with the red paint and Cragar wheels. The front is almost the same as the red concord you posted a while back.
