The Unfortunate History of the AMC Pacer
Behind all the jokes and insults, the AMC Pacer is actually a car with a great deal of history. It began as radical new design from an underdog company. In an attempt to combat the big, bland, boxy cars from Detroit's "Big Three," little American Motors Corporation decided to build something a little different. Their one-eyed car stylist Dick Teague proposed a small, wide car with big windows and smooth aerodynamics. Americans had never seen anything like it. This in-depth documentary tells the true story of the Pacer. Unbeknownst to many, the car persevered through manufacturing setbacks, government regulations, and many other troubles. Featuring a ton of old car advertisements and rare footage of AMC's factory, the film helps paint a picture of the Pacer's world. Director Joe Ligo sits down with AMC stylist Vincent Geraci, author Patrick Foster, and television personalities John Davis and Pat Goss from PBS's MotorWeek.

AMC Matador
A not too often seen vehicle, a 1978 AMC Matador 2-door coupe. This was a styling direction taken by AMC, starting for the 1974 model year. This example was in a gold color originally, and has air conditioning, 360 cubic inch V-8, Torque-Command 3-speed automatic transmission and an uncommon option, not offered by any other manufacturer with this style of roof, roll-down back windows. Restoration will be continuing over this winter season.
