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 areodynamics. 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.

1976 AMC Pacer Test Drive | AutoMoments Time Warp
The car world loves to hate the Pacer, but how many of those people have
actually driven one? After producing an entire documentary about the car,
we decided to test one for ourselves. While far from perfect, we found the
Pacer to not be nearly as bad as people claim. In fact, this strangle
little car is pretty cool in it's own weird sort of way.

401 AMC Pacer Vs 440 AMC Pacer
My 1978 Pacer (black one) with a built AMC 401 and 5-speed manual
transmission versus a 1976 Pacer with a Mopar 440 with a 3-speed auto at
Bristol Dragway in Bristol, TN on June, 12 2009 as part of the 2009 Hot Rod
Power Tour. My dad was driving in this run, and unfortunately could not get
the rear tires to hook up. The Red White and Blue Pacer hooked up, and thus
the result. Winner: Red White and Blue Pacer with a email@example.com followed
by our car with a firstname.lastname@example.org. Well work on the car, find a way to get her
to hook up, and well be back again. 13s shouldnt be a problem and itll
give us something to aspire to. Also, please excuse the sub-fanatics level
of camera work...this was me behind the camera as Dan did not come with me
on the Power Tour.
Anna Beth's 1976 AMC Pacer X, 'MoPacer'
This is the first video of this 1976 AMC Pacer X, the MoPacer.
After sitting outside for 18 years, it took two years to restore this
little car, with modern 4.5L H.O. Jeep EFI power, GM overdrive, A/C, cruise
control, XM radio, alarm, intermittent wipers, keyless entry/alarm/remote
start, and 17 inch KMC 'Hot Wheels'.
It also took nearly 4 years of searching to amass enough NOS parts to
perform a show-worthy restoration including all new suspension, A/C and
interior components, and more. It also gets 27 MPG! Designed and built by
Harrel and Anna Beth Lamkin completed 5-2007. The show quality paint was
sprayed by Robert Stachowicz at Delaney Auto Design. It was featured in a
6-page article in Hot Rod magazine, Nov 07.

After the Mopacer appeared in Hot Rod magazine, someone in Illinois with a
purple Pacer, copied the white stripe of the MoPacer, and got published in
Car and Driver magazine. From a distance (and in images), it is sometimes
mistaken for this multiple show-winning 1976 AMC Pacer X, 'MoPacer'.

1974 AMC Gremlin Built 343 V8 4 BBL Start up and Walkaround
I thought you might like a look at this very unique 1974 AMC Gremlin. It's
powered by a balanced and blueprinted 343 V8, backed by a 3 spd automatic
trans. The engine features a more aggressive car, stainless Exhaust valves, aluminum intake, Holley 4 BBL
Carb, MSD ignition, and headers. This little car will really scoot down
the road in a hurry. To top it off, this car only has 46,xxx original
miles on the odometer and only about 5,xxx miles on the engine. This thing
is ready to run for many more years to come. Hope you find it interesting,
thanks for watching!
