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.

Electric Cars Lead New Models in 2011
By Mil Arcega, VOA News
December 28, 2010 7:00 PM
Electric cars have been in development for a few years, but industry
experts say more efficient batteries, improved performance, and greater
consumer acceptance could transform 2011 into the year of the electric car.
Our reporter looks at some of the models you'll see in showrooms soon.
Electric cars are set to go mainstream in 2011.
And automakers are all vying for a slice of the potentially lucrative
Japanese carmaker Nissan says its new Leaf will appeal to green-minded but
budget-conscious consumers. It's priced at about $30,000. But product
planning director Mark Perry calls it the affordable electric family car.
"This is the world's first affordable pure zero emission car, battery
electric, no gas, no oil," said Perry. "Never have to go to a gas station,
never have to do an oil change. Zero emission - there's not even a
French auto maker Peugeot is also getting into the game with the fast
charging iOn, designed for short trips around town.
And Renault's diminutive two-seater, the Twizy, boasts a full charge in
just under four hours.
Renault says with a range of about 100 kilometers per charge, it's ideal
for city use.
But industry experts say the limited range of most electric cars is still a
barrier for consumers.
American car maker General Motors believes it has the answer with the new
hybrid Volt - which began appearing in showrooms in December.
GM West Coast communications manager Richard James:
"It's an electric vehicle that allows you to drive - if you have a full
battery - on pure electricity or your battery reserve for up to 50 miles
[80.46 kms]," said James. "What happens after that, to overcome this issue
known as "range anxiety," is there's a generator that is built into the
car, an internal combustion engine - a gasoline engine essentially - that
kicks in automatically, seamless to the consumer, that will charge the
battery and so the vehicle will continue to run on its electric
architecture for up to 350 miles [563.3 kms]."
But not all electric cars are for the average consumer. Los Angeles Auto
Show spokesman Brendan Flynn likes the wow factor of Jaguar's C-X75 hybrid.
"We have this Jaguar that's in the booth right next to us that's a $300,000
electric Supercar that goes from zero to 60 [mph] in 3.2 seconds," said
Flynn. "You can go to Vegas and back on one tank of gas."
For those with smaller budgets, Nissan's Micra packs a lot of technology
and fuel economy for under $19,000. Besides keyless entry, it can also
check the space between parked cars to tell drivers if the car will fit.
Hybrid or not, Road and Track magazine editor Richard Horman says in 2011,
the trend is for lighter, smarter, more economical cars.
"When I started this business, cars and trucks were getting bigger and
bigger and bigger and trucks were the big thing," said Horman. "Now cars
are tending to get smaller. There's even a little Fiat over at the Chrysler
stand. Cars getting smaller, becoming more efficient packages."
But don't expect the classic gasoline powered car to disappear. McLaren's
Supercar, the MP4-12C, boasts a 3.8 litre V8 twin turbo engine that can go from zero to sixty in
three seconds flat. But with a price tag of $260,000, it's not for
