It was the Pacer! AMC had already done so much R&D on the Pacer, and had even ordered body dies, when GM pulled the rug out from under them! So the firewall was redesigned and the AMC six stuffed in. It was the first "cab forward" design. Unfortunately it was built to early 70s standards. Got about the same gas mileage as the bigger Matador, but did handle better and was safer. The gas crunch really did it in. Some would say styling, but as soon as it was shown orders poured in! AMC built 44,000 in the first three months -- all sold. They could have sold more, but couldn't build them any faster. With another gas shortage soon after it was done for! It was supposed to be a compact with the ride and comfort of a bigger car, it was never built to get good gas mileage. It met it's goal, but other circumstances (gas shortage!) killed it.

Farna's question was just for fun/conversation while we were waiting for Dave57210 to ask a question.

Earth to Dave...Where are you?

It's been over a day and a half now, according to the unwritten rules he's timed out and the floor is open. At least until he returns.

It's a brake drum from a mid sixties "8 Lug" Pontiac.

So, what make and model car is this? It stunned me as I couldn't imagine this brand with fender skirts.

Are the knock-offs real or fake? Looks like lug nuts behind the wires... Real knock-offs would make it a European car, likely British...
Could it be a Rolls or Bentley (basically the same car...)
