I had the gremlin for about 5 years. When I got it, there was no motor or tranny and the interior was in bad shape.Yes that is Carollon park, they had a AMO amc nationals there last year.

Does it lift the front wheels on take-off? My cousin had one that did but I can't remember which motor he had in it.

Mine did. I ended up putting wheelie bars on it after my dad caught me doing wheel stands....it would pull the front wheels a foot or more (lots more a few times LOL) off the ground. I had the Chrysler V8 and a 3 speed manual in mine, factory.

Thanks for all of the kind remarks
