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.

1978 AMC Pacer
The AMC Pacer is a two-door compact automobile that was produced in the United States by the American Motors Corporation between 1975 and 1980. Design work began in 1971. The rounded shape and large glass area were unusual compared with the three-box designs of the era. The Pacer's width is equal to full-sized domestic vehicles at the time, and this unique design feature was promoted by AMC as "the first wide small car."[2] The Pacer was the first modern mass-produced, U.S. automobile design using the cab forward concept. The Pacer's rounded and aerodynamic "jellybean" styling has made it an icon of the 1970s. The May 1976 issue of Car and Driver dubbed it "The Flying Fishbowl", and it was also described as "the seventies answer to George Jetson's mode of transportation at a time when "Detroit was still rolling out boat-sized gas guzzlers.

The Gremlin was an economy car by 1970s U.S. standards. It served as a foundation for alternative fuels and power systems, including pure electric. Designed by Bob Nixon from an idea by Richard A. Teague, the car was based on a shortened and adapted Hornet platform with a Kammback-type tail. faster than other subcompacts of the time, it competed with the Chevrolet Vega and Ford Pinto, and also with imported cars including the Volkswagen Beetle and Toyota Corona. The manufacturer described it as "the first American-built import". The Gremlin was introduced on 1 April 1970, and a total of 671,475 were built in its single generation (one chassis design) and also in only one body style.

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 13.72@101.85 followed by our car with a 14.54@96.36. 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. Visit Anna Beth's web site: www.MoPacer.com 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'.
