From Wikipedia The AMC Gremlin is a two-door subcompact car produced in the United States and Canada by the American Motors Corporation (AMC) between 1970 and 1978. Designed by Bob Nixon from an idea by Richard A. Teague, the car was based on a shortened and adapted Hornet platform with a Kammback-type tail. faster than other subcompacts of the time, it competed with the Chevrolet Vega and Ford Pinto, and also with imported cars including the VW Beetle and Toyota Corona.[2][3] The manufacturer described it as "the first American-built import".[4] The Gremlin was introduced on April 1, 1970, and a total of 671,475 were built in its single generation (one chassis design and body style). Scarcity, and the fact that it is a 1970s car, makes the Gremlin collectible,[79] and it has a following among old car hobbyists and collectors of historic vehicles. In some cases, the Gremlin enjoys "a cult-like following in today's collectible car market.[18] In 2007 Business Week reported that 1970s cars such as the Gremlin were increasingly attractive to buyers, and an insurance provider for collector-car owners reported that values were rising.[80][81] In light of rising gasoline prices, the Gremlin offers a relatively economical alternative to muscle cars and the more massive American cars of its era-especially for buyers leaning toward the eccentric.[5] AMC said the Gremlin got "the best gas mileage of any production car made in America", and its 21-US-gallon (79 L; 17 imp gal) gas tank allowed 500 miles (805 km) or more between fill-ups. It has been said that scarcity makes any Gremlin in good condition worth preserving as a unique piece of automotive history.[82] Original Gremlins with the V8 engine, X package models, Levi's trim, and also the 1978 GT versions, are the most sought-after and command higher prices.[83] Although Gremlins share numerous parts and components with other AMC models,[18] finding parts for a restoration project can be difficult. This is exacerbated by the fact that many Gremlins were chopped up during the late 1970s and the 1980s to make dirt-track racers. The body of choice on the dirt circuit was the Gremlin and AMC Eagle.[84] The subcompact bodies fit Modified chassis and of special interest was the Gremlin's slab top and sides with a contour that was easy to duplicate in sheet metal.[85] Over the years, many owners have converted Gremlins into home-built "muscle cars" because AMC engines up to the 401 cu in (6.6 L) "just drop right in".[86] There are active AMC car clubs with numerous local chapters to assist Gremlin owners.

The Unfortunate History of the AMC Pacer
Behind all the jokes and insults, the AMC Pacer is actually a car with a great deal of history. It began as radical new design from an underdog company. In an attempt to combat the big, bland, boxy cars from Detroit's "Big Three," little American Motors Corporation decided to build something a little different. Their one-eyed car stylist Dick Teague proposed a small, wide car with big windows and smooth areodynamics. Americans had never seen anything like it. This in-depth documentary tells the true story of the Pacer. Unbeknownst to many, the car persevered through manufacturing setbacks, government regulations, and many other troubles. Featuring a ton of old car advertisements and rare footage of AMC's factory, the film helps paint a picture of the Pacer's world. Director Joe Ligo sits down with AMC stylist Vincent Geraci, author Patrick Foster, and television personalities John Davis and Pat Goss from PBS's MotorWeek.





1967 AMC Rambler American , commercial American Motors
1969 was last year in the USA for AMC to use the name Rambler on it's automobiles. In 1950, the Rambler was introduced by Nash. After the merger of Hudson and Nash to form AMC, the name then was also affixed to Hudsun Ramblers. By 1958, Nash and Hudson names would be gone and only Rambler used by AMC (if you see someone with a post Rambler American or Metropolitan calling the car a Nash, they are incorrect, the name Nash was no longer used after 1958). By 1969, the move was back to focusing on a full line of cars. With then impeding introduction of the AMC Hornet, Rambler was phased out. The final year is simply just a Rambler, not a Rambler American, that too was phased out. Over 100,000 Ramblers were built in the USA for 1969. During the 60's, AMC HeyDays, they were EVERYWHERE. The Rambler Name continued on in other parts of the world. You can find Rambler Ambassadors, Matadors and Hornets in Mexico and Austrailia and New Zealand and South Africa.

The Big Rambler/AMC/Jeep Show, Kenosha, WI, 2007
On Saturday, July 28, 2007, four days after my leg cast came off, I was up shooting video at the Rambler/AMC/Jeep show in Kenosha, WI, the largest such show in the country. Felt real good to be back on two legs again. And before you start writing in with blood in your eyes, yes, I know the Alliance pictured isn't an '83; convertibles didn't come out till a few years later. This one was the only one at the show. Encores, Medallions, Sportwagons and Premiers weren't there at all. You owners of '83 to '88 Renault cars should be better represented at next year's show; they were as much a part of the AMC story as the Rambler and the Jeep.
