"A friend talked some sense into me that I should keep it. Since then, I've gotten in a car accident. One day on a slick road, there was a random stop of the cars on front of me. Going 60, you know how sucky Pacer brakes are. Well, due to the sheer mass I rear-ended a 1999 Kia Spectra and tore it all to ****. I took some pictures of the accident site, but at current cannot find them. I will send them soon.
"Anyway, The right side of the Pacer clipped the left of the Kia (it hit the car and kept on going), and the hook-like protrusion on the back bumper ripped the Kia door open and flattened the tire and busted a strut, among other things. It had to be towed from the site. The almighty Pacer (a.k.a. The Fantastic Death Machine) was OK. The front turn signal lens had a series of tiny cracks and the rear bumper was bent out straight. At home I removed the bumper and slammed it into the ground a few times and bent it back. Otherwise, I haven't done anything.
"After the Kia got extensive body work and a trip to Wal-Mart for some new hubcaps, I saw it again, and it was looking good. It was a strange coincidence -- 30 miles from the accident site, and I was behind it again. You should've seen how fast it went at the green light!
"No stories from the performance front. I beat a Nissan 240 something, but lost to a V6 camaro the same day." -Stevie
|272. Jeremy's perfect '76 Pacer. |
Submitted 10 June 2002.
|273. "This is Dick Teague's own customized Pacer pickup truck. This truck was customized to show AMC brass the Pacer could be used for a variety of purposes including a utility vehicle. The car last I heard is still in the Daryl Starbird Collection, who is one of the legends of customizing like Barris, his museum is located in Oklahoma, and he designed the Spacer Pacer bubbletop car also shown in your photos. Neither are for sale, display only." -Eddie Stakes
