Default Gail's 1976 Gremlin

Somewhere in one of the threads, Gail (from Canada) mentioned she and her husband cruise around in a 1976 Gremlin. I expressed disbelief that a 1976 Gremlin was still running, so Gail sent me a photo and asked me to post it here. I have to admit, the Gremlin looks in good shape, and so does the other car!



Apparently, her hubby thought that this more recent shot was a better view of his "baby", so here's another one!

Gail,
I don't think there's many Javelins around these days? I can't remember what year mine was but it met a sad end in 1984 when a kid on a motorcycle tried to pass me while I was making a left hand turn, he crashed into the drivers side tire area and I saw him fly through the air as my head came back from hitting the steering wheel. The insurance company totaled the car and I moved up to a Ford Escort!

A good friend owned two Javelins. I think one was '72 and the other was a '74. One was green with black racing stripes and the other was yellow with black racing stripes.
