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.

I finally got it home about 1 month ago, I have 22 more days until I leave, then I wont see the old gal for a whole year. I have no way to store it or anything so she will have to endure the elements once more, hopefully I can get a tarp to lay on the ground and drive onto it, then one on the top and tie the two together. I also demonstrate the seat belt interlock system. I recently drove it out and I discovered another fuel leak so she is parked for a while, I'm going to let it run for a bit then slowly pour oil into the carb until it stops running and pour some more in the cylinders and close her up till i can come get her next spring.
