Gremlin

In relation to “Datsun“, Neil Remington Abramson commented as follows:

I never fit in sports cars. I remember when I was 21 and hoping to buy my first car, my heart was as set on a Fiat X19.

No headroom. No legroom. The salesman talked me into trying a boxy 124 and drove me into the countryside, so I could drive it back. Couldn’t get it into 1st gear! My knee was in the way. The salesman was really upset, given his efforts and the lost commission.

I ended up with an AMC Gremlin. Google says it’s just about the ugliest car ever built. At the time, it didn’t seem that way.
