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.

1971 Chevy Vega Commercial - Worst Car Ever Made in the USA in Modern Times
The Chevy Vega was built to compete with the likes of VW, Toyota and Datsun in the USA. It was Chevy's first Sub Compact Car. Although there is always some debate. This car is considered by many as being one of or actually, the Worst Car Ever Made. It's very subjective. It was heavily recalled by GM for prolbems, the alluminium engines warped, the front cowl sections rusted thru in a short period of time. The overall build quality was very suspect. The Ford Pinto had some Safety issues or at least a bad reputation earned rightly or wrongly with the placement of the Gas Tank and the AMC Gremlin had detractors to it's styling but was reliable car, but the Vega was real junk.

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.

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'.
