AMC Pacer documentary

Here is a pretty good documentary on the technical, regulatory, and marketing history of AMC's ill-fated effort at an innovative economy car.

See my car's mod & maintenance thread and my electric bicycle's thread for ongoing projects. I will rebuild Black and Green over decades as parts die, until it becomes a different car of roughly the same shape and color. My minimum fuel economy goal is 55 mpg while averaging posted speed limits. I generally top 60 mpg. See also my Honda manual transmission specs thread.

Designed one year earlier...
