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.
The new Challenger vs. the World [S3 Ep.8-1]
Some of the biggest news to come down the automotive pipeline in a long
time is the fact that Dodge is making the Challenger again. But how does it
stack up against the legendary Challengers of old? Well, Stacey decided to
find out! First, by "grabbing" a Challenger in a most unorthodox way... and
then comparing it head-to-head with a 70'440 six-pack car. But that's not
all... Then Stacey decided to take the new car beyond the legend by
sticking on a Supercharger and really
blowing the doors off of the competition! If you are a Mopar nut, or have
just wondered what all the fuss was about concerning the new Challenger...
this is one show you've got to see!

Great job Dodge, the car makes incredible power for a factory vehicle. This
car is absolutely 100% stock, and these Dyno numbers are SAE with a
smoothing level of 0.
I cannot wait until the aftermarket community gets their hands on this 392,
great things are going to happen.
