  1. Hi! Since I was 15 and helped my next-door friend instal Hooker headers on his 304 - 3 speed Gremlin X, I always had a soft spot for the strange little car from AMC... I had a 76 AMT Gremlin X in my stash, but what to do with it that would be a bit unusual? Let's see... I LOVE traveling to the Mount-Washington Valley in New-Hampshire, and I've driven to the top of the mountain a few times, by car and motorcycle. And I LOVE a famous Mexican restaurant in nearby Conway Village, the Cafe Noche. What if, in my fantasy, an all wheel-drive, twin turbo rallye Gremlin, sponsored by said restaurant, would enter the famous Run to the clouds, Mt Washington's response to Pikes Peak, held in mid-summer since eons? There you have it: AMT 76 Gremmy, mashed with AMT's Dodge Stealth powertrain and platform, both extensively modified, of course. Parts box seats, Foose 64 Impala rolling stock, Monogram's Turbo TBird intercooler, MPC's borsch altered wing (modified). Throw in a lot of scratchbuilt: door panels, roll-bar, console, shifter, hand-brake, bumpers, scoops, radio antenna, air intake plenum, some sponsor and event home-made decals, etc. Tamya's paints + Alclad and Molotow's chrome. It remains to be seen if the typical Subarus and Focus will feel threatened... But we can entertain the fantasy. Hours of fun with styrene! CT
