As a big fan of both AMC and hatchbacks, there is nothing I like more than a nice, clean AMC Gremlin that really delivers all-around. The owner of this car, Mark Greenisen, has done a lot to this humble economy car from 1974.
After the oil crisis in the early 1970’s, large American cars faced a big problem. Their massive size and large-block V8 engines were no longer compatible with the price of fuel to the average American family. AMC answered this with a number of relatively small, practical cars that fulfilled the needs of citizens suddenly concerned with fuel economy.
