Was it ever a Gremlin?(back in the 50-60's)

What is the history of the Gremlin & the Cleveland Browns?

Why is one part of the end zone called the dog pound?

Why are if they are called Dawgs/Dogs?

It was intended to be tongue in cheek as I'm sure there were some Browns/AMC Gremlin promotions during the 1970's.

Well, you don't have to get mad about it.

The Pacer was quite a design too.

I think it's called the elf.

Not sure of where it came from, but its been an on and off secondary emblem.

The dog pound got its name from a linebacker who did barking chants after sacking a QB. People in the bleachers repeated the chants.

Who's getting mad? Not me! I only said it has nothing to do with the car.

It's an Elf, that takes the AMC Gremlin out of the picture.
