The Car: 1979 AMC Pacer D/L Limited wagon

I don’t just like American Motors Pacers, I love ‘em. From the first time I sat in one at an auto show, I was smitten. It was like someone designed a car to fit me and it felt great.

The following year I special-ordered a yellow 1976 Pacer X from Harvey Thompson, of Alexander Ambassador in Windsor, the salesperson who years before had asked me to buy a car from him when I became old enough to drive.

Back then he was at El Rancho Rambler, in Windsor’s Riverside neighbourhood.

Magna Steyr Could Build The New Supra And BMW Z4: Report

  Magna Steyr Could Build The New Supra And BMW Z4: Report Magna Steyr is one of the biggest unseen car makers out there, working tirelessly in the shadowy parts of Austria to make some very noticeable cars: they’ve been building Mercedes-Benz G-Wagens since 1979, and they’ve been building BMW’s 5-series cars and the Jaguar E-Pace since last year. They’re a major automotive manufacturer but not a brand, and according to Automotive News Europe, they’ll soon be building two new very important cars, the co-developed Toyota Supra and the BMW Z4. © Provided by Univision Interactive Media, Inc.

I wasn’t able to keep my specially ordered car for more than a few years, and not having a Pacer ate at me for a long time.

So I put every dollar I could into a fund, which allowed me to rescue a black and silver ‘77 Pacer coupe from southeast of Edmonton. That car is a very long-term project, but at least I have had it to admire.

The need to have a Pacer I could actually drive on the street led me to buy a rather rare model from a friend in Northern Ramblers, the pre-eminent AMC club in Canada. Next weekend the club hosts its annual meet and show at Haugen’s BBQ in Manchester, Ont., near Port Perry, on Saturday, June 9. It’s a great place to see some cool American Motors cars in person.

On December 3, 1979 , the last Pacer rolls off the assembly line at the American Motors Corporation ( AMC ) factory in Kenosha, Wisconsin. When the car first came on the market in 1975, it was a sensation, hailed as the car of the future.

Sure seems like in the ’70s in here. The Limited models like Tim Rusling’s D/L (Deluxe) wagon were only sold in the Pacer’s last two years of production. They came with thicker carpeting (but not quite shag), power windows, power door locks, leather-and-corduroy front seats and leather rear seats.

Not long ago a teenage girl thought it was a new car that she’d never heard of, which made my day. More people seem to like Pacers now than a generation ago.

1979 AMC Pacer DL. June 28, 2011. Why AMC even bothered to make this car is beyond me. Not only was it quite hideous, it could crank out a top speed of just 88 MPH, and a 0-60 time of 15.8 seconds, despite its 18 MPG fuel economy.
