Gremlin: The New American CarJanuary 4th, 2014
This is how they did it in the days before PowerPoint. Greg’s Automotive dug up this awesomely retro bit of automotive history which features a sales training presentation for the original 1970 AMC Gremlin. The presentation offers up arguments about fuel economy and design as it goes up against the imports and its top competitor – the VW Beetle, and it’s fans “The Bug Boosters.”
And before you go pointing out the way they spelled “Datson”, that’s actually how it was spelled at one time – back in the 1930s.
While the Gremlin was arguably a pretty crappy car when all was said and done, it’s certainly an iconic American vehicle of the 1970s.
