Radiator leak at 6 months.
Battery died at 11 months.
When it developed growly rear wheel axle bearings at 1 year we traded it
in on a new Toyota Celica. Took a beating on price but so glad to be rid of it!
No wonder AMC went belly up!!
They didn't. They just morphed into Fiat-Chrysler...lol

I think most every car and truck built to day is ugly. Some much uglier than others. Did I say expensive too?

I was my experience that with some aggressive snow tires on the back, an old beat up Gremlin was VERY fun off-road!

Whoa easy there. I'd take that fastback off your hands any day, any condition if you still had it. I don't know how that even qualifies.

LOL, you either love them or hate them. It's long gone but that $600 beater kept my dates dry in the rainy season. (Road motorcycles most of my life.)

I'm glad I'm not the only one that thinks this. Snow scoops...that's what I call them. What are they thinking with those things??
