Re: '72 project Gremlin in Maryland for sale...rough, but salvageable, maybe...not X



Hey Jerry,
 I would like to see those pictures that you took of both Gremlins. 
You can send them to my email: gremlin982003@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx and as far 
as the wheels, my moms Hornet Wagon had no volcanos on it, I had to 
find them, some what I heard, Jeeps used that same wheel and they 
didnt have volcanos...I guess its driver preference, I have them on 
my Gremlin X and I think they look better with the volcanos on them. 
But, I would like to see those pictures that you took of the Gremlins.

Thanks,
Charlie
