1974 AMC Gremlin

Joe LohrCompleted Projects

Mark Greenisen's 1974 AMC Gremlin is not a joke. Maybe the multi-color large metallic flake within its bright-green paint made you think so, but think again! This car had the fastest autocross lap of the weekend at the 2016 Car Craft Summer Nationals! CHECK OUT THE CAR CRAFT MAGAZINE FEATURE HERE: Car Craft Magazine / 1974 Gremlin
