LOL, I hear that. I wonder how they decided on restoring a pacer??? Did she pick it or did it pick them??? Either way, they did a great job of it...

I can't say too much about the Pacer as I did own one years ago. It was an ugly brownish gold with what looked like an Indian blanket interior. The rear quarters and rear pan were rusted out along with the bottom of the front fenders. I redid the interior with Javelin buckets and console and dyed the rest of the interior black, painted it Metallic blue Centari Acrylic Enamel. Added some Cragars and wider tires. I actually got quite a few positive comments on it. Not bad for less than $1000 total investment. And if you have never drove one or been in one, you CAN see all the way around you. No blind spots. So even though they were not a very good looking car on the outside, they did have some positive things going for it.
Then some people asked "Why a Pacer?" Why not It is different, no one really liked them, and I got a good deal on it. Why follow the crowd? Dare to be different. This is the only pic I have (days before digital) I wish I had a before pic, but the shape the car was in was worse than the purple one shown above.

OOOH , a javelin ......I loved my 70 javelin... one of the few I wish I never sold.
I think you'll find that the ugly car owners are a devoted bunch (me included) my pacer was so ugly I was proud of its uglyness,it was a fun ,dependable car and I never really minded driving it. Ugly cars seem to have a personality all their own.

I dunno...I never owned, or even drove a Pacer, but I've always considered them to be a pretty neat looking car.

Ask and you shall receive...

The Porsche 928, who knew a supercar like this had Pacer pedigree in it's family tree. Chop the top, add pop up head lights and then raise the sticker price 10x...

I had many folks make the Pacer reference prior to adding the big ricer wing, now they just laugh and point...
