Crazy wheelstand from an AMC Gremlin? Has to be seen to be believed. Be
sure to pause it and observe that he had all 4 wheels off the ground. Car
was on it's bumper only. This was at the World Power Wheelstanding
Competition in Byron, IL. in 2006. FYI - this is not my car. Please keep
comments clean and intelligent. If they fall outside those limits, I won't
approve them. This video and all rights are exclusive copyright of Jack

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. The
manufacturer described it as "the first American-built import".
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, 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. 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.
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. 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. 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.
Although Gremlins share numerous parts and components with other AMC
models, 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. 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.
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
