I have a special place in my heart for the AMC Pacer. I almost bought one. I was in the hunt for a Volkswagen Beetle and one of my co-workers asked if I liked all ugly old cars, and I said "Yea, pretty much" and she led me to the parking lot. There, I found her Pacer, a red and white two-toned beauty that had really low miles. It was in fantastic shape. She was asking a grand for it, and I would have bought it, but I was determined to get myself a beetle.
As some of you know, I did end up with a Beetle shortly thereafter, but if I could have afforded both, I woulda had one hell of a sweet Pacer in my driveway right now.
