1978 AMC Pacer D/L 4.2 Liter (258 inline 6) from North America
This is the classic for those who want to get noticed!
Fan Blower Switch ($23 for the part and $65 for the repair)
Windshield wiper Motor and Sprayer Pump ($19 for parts and easy self Install)
Steering Wheel (to replace a smashed horn Assembly) ($19.00 for part and about $25 for Installation kit)
Install of AM/FM Cassette radio ($49 for AMC Radio; have not installed yet)
Driver Seat Support (have not fixed yet)
This car is the MOST unique vehicle you will see on the road; bar none.
The use of present-day technologies in this 1978 continues to amaze mechanics and others helping me with the restoration.
As comfortable as a car several times it size and a kick to drive.
So many modern cars have been influenced; from Porsche (911/928 rear end anyone) to the "new" Dodge Ram trucks (1978 grille design all the way).
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

You've got to be kidding about Porsche and Dodge copying anything from the Pacer. The hood was like that for the V8 to fit. Dodge's Ram (mainly the earlier ones) resemble the big International trucks in my opinion. American motors always was a space shot when it came to styling, no wonder they went out of business. I had to use an Eagle once and hated it!!
