1976 AMC Pacer
The AMC Pacer was, as AMC put it, the first wide small car, designed to have the efficiency and maneuverability of a compact without sacrificing big-car comfort. Interestingly, the Pacer was meant to have a rotary engine, though by production time, all that was offered were a variety of 6-cylinders and a V8, non of which got particularly good gas mileage. Today, of course, despite the negative press when it was introduced, the Pacer is a cult classic, loved for the weird--though cool--styling. This Pacer is finished in the most 70s shade of avocado green ever. That, along with the great patina and
original hubcaps, make this a definite best-of-'14.
