YAK Car Pic of the Day

71 gremlin pink nbflo copy

Anyone who spends much time driving the Buffalo/Kenmore border has probably seen this 1971 AMC Gremlin X at least once. It can often be seen on the Buffalo side of the line, just a stone’s throw from being in the suburbs. I’m not sure if that pink paint job was factory or not; judging from the intact stripes though, it just might be, even though I can’t find a reference to it in my usual guides. AMC was doing some pretty wacky things back in the ’70s to attract new buyers. And this pink color is definitely wacky.

    Gremlins were pretty shoddy and UGLY cars. This one seems to be particularly ugly.
