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.

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.

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'.

The Scorpian Pacer
Now if AMC would have made the Pacer at least a little like this maybe it would have done a little better. The time the original Pacer was made would not have allowed this due to issues happening then. This car has a Ford 302 V-8, chopped roof and a wild interior as you can see. Yes, it can move quite well. The owners are really nice folk as well, very approachable and quite dedicated to showing the car, as it should very well be
