|302. "I would like to show you my Pacer, which I bought in 1977. I am from the Montreal area in Canada. My Pacer was the best car I ever had. As you can see, it was a two-tone, black and silver/grey. Beautiful :-). I had to let it go in '82. It was 5 years old, and with harsh winters, I started to change parts, and with a new baby in the family, I did not want to get stuck, so changed for a new car. A Honda Civic 5-door -- talk about a big change." -Denis Patenaude |

|303. "I'll give you a little history on this car: I just recently purchased it from the original owner, a gentleman that had bought it for a second car to drive while they wintered in Tucson. They are from Wisconsin. They bought the car in Wisconsin, and had it there the first year and then brought it to Tucson, where it has been since. It has been garaged all of its life, so everything is in good shape. The paint is original, the Vinyl top is nice, good color, and not dried out. The dash is not cracked either. Seats are great. It, of course, is not a 'perfect' car, but probably one of the most optioned / original condition ones around anywhere. |
"I originally purchased it for my second son, who will start driving next fall. I have an 18-year-old boy that already has a excellent, low-mileage '75 Valiant (V8/AC/CD strereo) that he likes better than the Pacer. My second son is not really crazy about the car either -- to young, I suppose, for the Wayne's World thing. Anyway, since he doesn't care if he drives the Pacer, I thought I'd just re-sell it & get him something else this summer." -Greg (FLaMe1951)

Updated 11 May 2004: "I did sell the Pacer. It went to Kansas. A dentist there bought the car for his son that was in his first year in college. The car made quite a hit on campus & was photographed with a ton of kids in it for the college yearbook."
|304. travis-cge.jpg,Travis' CGE Pacer,t Travis was working on restoring this Pacer, originally built by Carl Green, in early 2003. He's looking for additional information on this car, so if you know anything, please contact me, and I'll put you in touch with him. |
He says: "I've had this car since I turned 16 in 1987. I'm building a 360 motor for it, and it already had a 411 rear-end in it -- it was a very fast car. I had a magazine it was in, but when I was going through a divorce, she threw it away..."

|305. "I recently purchased this '78 Coupe. It's a good 50-footer, but needs some body work. I'm looking forward to cruising around town with it next summer. Look for it on the roads of southern Minnesota!" -Doug Lund
