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'.

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
The KBB.com $10,000 Video Contest - 1977 Tioga
This is a video review of my 1977 Tioga RV. Not exactly a sports car, but
its a great rig, and it gives us a ton of use and fun. BTW, I also
recorded the guitar piece for the background music.
