Its a '76 Pacer customized - I think it looks great. Aggressive and even exotic. Not my pictures so no more details sadly.

Looks like a lor of work. If the tail was just a bit shorter.

Wow, it's a Pascher 944! I like it!

Now only if they had lightened it up and stuck a rotary under the hood like AMC originally planned.

I agree, the tail is a bit too long. I kinda dig it though.

It seems to be sitting all by its lonesome. . . strange. . .

And I would have liked it better without the whaletail

From the rear it also looks a bit like a Renault Alpine 610.

can you imagine his friends thoughts on this?

"it is a bad idea to customize a pacer, what are you thinking?"

but it does not look too bad...

It needs that big tail because its the 'skorpion'. Some people should not be allowed to own cars.

I actually think it's a really cool creation, but it's completely ruined with those bullet hole stickers that you can see in the second pic. Why, why why!!!

"Hey, i just completed a completely custom, one off pacer exoticar, it's missing something on it's fresh paint, something that gives the look of living a thug lift but not so thug lifey...I know! Bullet hole stickers! Classy"

On a related note, a friend of mine's brother had a really old and gold honda civic wagon from like the 70's and he called it gold thunder. It was a real better he enjoyed thrashing, he even put a sweet compressor powered air horn on the roof. Since all the punks around here were putting those stickers on their cars he decided to just shoot holes in his door. Much better affect.

I think the windshield is a 2G Camaro, laid back a bit.

Luke, I agree... lot of Alpine there. That's not a bad thing. Shame about the whale-tail and bullet stickers. Cheese.

Wow, some Saw-Zall magic there for sure!!!

Too bad about the bullet holes and tail. I see cars at the shows that are done and done well, but the owner still has this I-gotta-do-something-constructive mindset and tarts the thing up with tasteless stickers and gaudy nonsense.

I know when to stop, I just gotta get there first....

i've always seen 928 in the pacer's greenhouse. no, the pacer came first, so i guess i've always seen pacer in the 928. either way, minus the cheesy quarter window scoops and with a milder tail treatment, i'd rock it.

I dunno. Just looks like an AMX roof on a pacer. Sort of an AMC products in a blender mixed with budweiser and bourbon. The stickers and wing are proof of the alcohol

Still Fugly

Lose the tail, the side scoops and that weird triangular hood opening and that could definitely reside in my driveway.

looking at the stock pacers.. the rear scoops are probably there because the owner of that pacer could not get windows to fit

I do not know if I am more impressed by the original post, or that the pictures from a 13 year old thread are still working.

True. So many threads have been effectively lost due to defunct picture hosts, but the little Pacer prevails...
