    Is there anybody out there besides myself that liked the Pacer. It had a lot of glass and almost gave you a 360 view of the road. Never owned one, so I don't know how reliable it was mechanically, but I felt like I was in an airplane whenever my shop-chief at Clark Air Base gave me a ride in his AMC Pacer. If you've had any experience with this antique "less than cool" vehicle and care to comment one way or the other, I'd really like to hear about it. Thanks.

    You're not alone. I've always like the looks of the AMC Pacer myself, for reasons unknown (but only the coupe versions like you have pictured--I don't like the wagons!) And they were discountinued 8 years before I was even born, go figure!

    Unfortunately, I've never had any real experience with them, though I've generally heard that AMCs weren't exactly the most reliable cars on the road....

    Whoa, AlMost a Car! :)

    A buddy of mine in high school had one and I always told him if that thing quits running you can always fill it with water add some fish and have one hellva cool aquarium.

    That's exceptionally humorous, and probably true. :notworthy:

    Out of all the AMC products the AMX always caught my eye, along with that 390 cubic inches...:eek:

    Not a bad looking car. I wonder what it would sell for at auction?
