A serious muscle car

The Gremlin is a 1973 AMC Gremlin, that was used during the flashlight story in Homestarloween Party as The Goblin's car. During the story, Bubs tricked it out by adding big rims in the back, an extra intake, a grill, spinners, and even a Flux Capacitor from the movie Back To The Future. After the cartoon, all of the customizations were taken out. It appeared in Where's The Cheat? in which Strong Mad turned it over in his search for The Cheat, only to find The Goblin. It was then again used in Dangeresque 1: Dangeresque, too? as Dangeresque's car, despite its obvious inoperability.

In Main Page 19, "The Show" the Gremlin appears when you mouse over the "Store" button. It also made an appearance in the Senorial Day holiday short, mostly to give Senor's commercial a hint of "car sales" flavor... despite the event having apparently nothing to do with selling cars per se.
