He and many members of the Lemons attended a meeting, so they could all discuss on how to discredit Allinol. The Lemons were using the electric pulse generator that looked like a camera to make the racers blow their engines and crash. This would ensure that all the cars would keep using convention fuel to secure the profits of the whole Lemon organization. He liked this idea, and he mentioned that he's from Detroit, Michigan when Victor Hugo entered the meeting room in Italy.

Like all the other Lemons, J. Curby Gremlin is a cold-hearted terrorist who would do anything for a quick buck. He is also notorious for being a crime boss and an iron-fisted family leader.
