    In other news I saw a gorgeous sea foam green Gremlin today - fabulous! No time for a pic but we waved mightily (I was in the Midget)

    You would never believe at one time it looked like this! PJ

    This one was set up for British roads. Very high class.

    My brother was telling me the story - apparantly the family had it, if not from new then for most of its life. At one point it was demoted to farm duty and after a while it was kind of forgotten. After an appropriate interval (years) someone remembered it and asked where it was - the answer was in so and so's barn. They went and looked and, no car. So, at the next larger family gathering they asked the collective - all of whom insisted it was in the barn. So, they went back and scoured the place, only to discover that at some point it had been rolled outside the barn and a HUGE bush and grown up through and all over the car - they literally cut it out and got it running and there they are. - I is apparantly only used for parades these days.
