The Big Rambler/AMC/Jeep Show, Kenosha, WI, 2007
On Saturday, July 28, 2007, four days after my leg cast came off, I was up
shooting video at the Rambler/AMC/Jeep show in Kenosha, WI, the largest
such show in the country.
Felt real good to be back on two legs again.
And before you start writing in with blood in your eyes, yes, I know the
Alliance pictured isn't an '83; convertibles didn't come out till a few
years later. This one was the only one at the show. Encores, Medallions,
Sportwagons and Premiers weren't there at all. You owners of '83 to '88
Renault cars should be better represented at next year's show; they were as
much a part of the AMC story as the Rambler and the Jeep.

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.
