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.

1978 AMX Sport Compact Car
The AMC Concord is a compact and economical car by 1970s US standards,
produced by the American Motors Corporation for the 1978 through 1983 model
years. The Concord replaced the AMC Hornet and to some extent the mid-size
AMC Matador, discontinued after 1978 in a market moving to downsized
automobiles. Offered in four-door sedan, two-door coupé (through 1982),
three-door hatchback (through 1979) and four-door station wagon forms, AMC
sought to give its, by this time venerable, compact car an image of luxury,
class, and value. The Concord was AMC's volume seller from the time it
The car was available as a sports-oriented two-door hatchback AMX model
without any "Concord" badges or identification for the 1978 model year, as
well as the Concord Sundancer convertible during 1981 and 1982, an
authorized conversion sold through AMC dealers.

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'.

Car Domain picks the MoPacer out of 647,000 cars for their Top Ten of the

31st Bangkok International Motor Show: American "Muscle" Cars
The 31st Bangkok Motor Show saw a large array of cars being exhibited of
all shapes and sizes, but in a decade where care for the environment and
extracting fuel economy are the automotive industry's new buzzwords, the
emphasis was firmly on small, simple and frugal cars that wring out the
last drop of fuel in a never-ending drive for ever-greater efficiency. This
was the theme in virtually every booth: power, style and performance had
been quietly relegated to the corners of the show. That was, however, until
the evening when the American Muscle cars grunted and squeezed their way
into BITEC Bagna.
Each evening for the duration of the motor show different owners' clubs
gather in the open spaces around the halls to provide spice and diversity
to the slick, modern and neatly-presented booths inside. From VW to Porsche
and Volvo to Toyota, cars of all shapes and sizes rallied to BITEC over the
week-and-a-half of the show. The American Muscle machines provided much
interest for visitors and spanned many decades with the most numerous
falling into a timeline chasing from the late 1960s through the 1970s into
the 1980s. These distinctive cars have a niche but loyal following in a
city that reveres western fashion and style and so the cars of Detroit's
greatest eras with their huge presence are to be found dotted around
Bangkok, and popping up at many events.
The American car industry is well known for lavish customisation and wild
hotrod cars that were both once a deeply-rooted fashion, and acres of
polished chrome and lurid paint finishes were on show from the trimmings of
a Ford Model T-styled custom creation, distinctive with its pale blue body
and luscious royal blue leather interior, and sporting white tyre walls, to
motorbikes with stability-defying front forks in glittering aluminium and
extravagantly-patterned fuel tanks. The cars on show followed the common
thread of huge dimensions, giant square-cut frames, rolling bonnets, big
chrome bumpers, thick full body length stripes, bold polished wheels,
jutting bonnet air scoops and engine bays that dazzled with their chrome
finishes. All Detroit's Big 3, Ford, General Motors and Chrysler, were on
show with many cars, such as the flamboyant Pontiac Transam, long since
immortalised into global consciousness through countless Hollywood movies
and television "cop" shows. Other giants of the highway to squeeze their
girths into the covered show area behind Hall 105 included Chevrolet's Nova
SS and Chevelle, Buick's Regal, a corrosion-eaten Ford Mercury and
Lincoln's wide-and-long 1960's V8.
