Have them make a machine that will throw an entire car as far as possible. The one who throws the car farthest wins. This is different from the punkin chunkin because it would require a machine with massive power. It would have to throw around 2,000 pounds. I don't know how they'd build it.

I read about a large trebuche that could throw cars.

I've seen a trebuchet throw a baby grand piano about sixty yard! Very impressive. Maybe they could toss an AMC Gremlin.

Remember the TV show Northern Exposure? "It's not what's flung. It's the fling itself."

Hey Rick why limit to just Gremlins ? Why not all the ugly AMC cars. LOL The Pacer comes to mind for sure, but the Hornet is a close second. :-)
