Re: [BaadAssGremlins] Re: How many Gremlins still running & how many AMCs left

When I talk to people (that aren't already AMC nuts) about AMC, it seems like the Gremlin and Pacer are much better known and remembered than the Hornet.

I currently have two running, driving and licensed.  A 1971 and a 1973 V-8 and I bought the first Gremlin sold in Lincoln, Nebraska in the first week of April, 1970.

I would love to buy a 1970 to add to my group.

Gremlins & Hornets didn't survive well. It's a two edged sword here also as
those that remain, there has been a expolsion of reproduction parts
available for these cars in last 15-20 years as technology continues to
evolve, so a good thing, more parts, stuff many people parted the cars out
in 1970s/80s for, now reproduced, so level of many of the cars we like to
restore..level of cars has gone up with better examples on those people wish
to 'fix up' or 'restify' or 'restore'.

Ironically there are sort of only two cars people remember in 2013 in era
when many people can't even spell or text the word 'amc'. Gremlin & Hornet,

many people remember them, not so Ambassador, Spirit, AMX, even Rambler,
that's fine though....

We were talking about this the other night. Maybe you can give us an
educated guess Eddie. We know there were a little over 600,000 made but we
were just wondering how many are left and how many of them are running. I
guess about 30,000 running and maybe that many are more rusting away.
Another guy said he would be surprised if there were 10,000. I really don't
have an idea.
