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.
AMC Drag Car vs AMX Heads Up!
Drag race between an AMX rail and a red 68 AMX owned by Lyman Eppley and
driven by his son Sam. This was during the test and tune. Clearly a heads
up race mismatch, but the red AMX is a street car and was driven home after
this event not trailered.
4x4ing with 2 AMC Eagles in Off-road Park
We went out 4x4ing out on a trail, and Pat decided he was going to cross a
deep mudhole. He got stuck for a bit when the car got high-centered in the
hole. Then we got him out. then we had to pull apart the starter (that
was full of mud and water) and we got it fixed, and got going again.
Javelin vs AMX Drag Race
Drag race between a red 68 AMX with a 343 V8 4 speed and a 72 Javelin with
a 401 V8 3 speed automatic. The red AMX is owned by Lyman Eppley and driven
by his son Sam. This car has AMSOIL Synthetic Lubricants throughout
