Think they were referring to the Pacer on review and the individual who wrote it, and not you and your Gremlin purchased "new".

It's sort of getting a tad annoying that more and more this site seems to be turning into reviews for ancient old cars. Frankly how a 40-50 year old car performs isn't exactly relevant. This site is more for newer cars and as a tool for folks seeking real world experiences.

So, if you don't like it, view the new car reviews. I like this site because there's something for everybody around the world. The vehicle that I drive daily is 21 years old. Perfectly relevant to discuss on here. On the reviews that are similar that is. For some that's a whole 'nother story.

Leave it exactly as is. This is a 1974 car review. Scroll to the late model manufacturer and year of your choice. Why tap on a 1974 car under review? I like our new cars as well. Each has s character of their own. But sometimes the isolated, insulated cocoon of a late model loses its luster. Putting the top down on an older car going through the gears is a rush. Especially in a really well restored car. This is a Pacer review. Appeals to some and they have a right to compare notes with others. Doing cross comparisons to a era vehicle is especially very interesting.

All reviews, old or new, have value. Not everyone can afford a new car or even a car at a couple of years old. The average age of a car on the road today is about 7 or 8 years old, and most cars last nearly 15 years on average, so certainly older reviews will be very helpful to most people.
As for this particular review, yes it is a 1970s car so likely will not appeal to everyone, but classic drivers and collectors like to hear others experiences and share help in the comments.
As others have alluded to, if you are looking for newer reviews, there are plenty on here as well, if that's what you are looking for.

Usually you hear this from a girlfriend or wife wondering what the allure is. I had some old ones with no air, no power windows etc. Minimal creature comforts. Why drive an old car when you have new? Or you could have bought a really nice new car for what the old one cost. But it’s usually all in fun. You work really hard, stay out of the casinos and don’t live in bars. It’s more fun directing it to a car hobby and into a club. One day your new car will be old. Many want brand new though. My spouse agrees with you 100%. She works hard too. Life is short; go with what you really like.
