    I bought a used, faded red ’75 Pacer for $250 in highschool. My friends called it the Orange Fucker, or Satan’s Tomato.

    Wayne’s World came out and my plan was to get light blue flames painted on my Pacer, like a Bizarro version of the Pacer in the movie. Broke highschool me couldn’t afford it, and did not trust my friends who said they could do it. Should’ve let them do it ffs… It’s a $250 Pacer.

    The automatic choke failed so my Dad and I installed a manual choke. Couple weeks later (middle of winter) the manual choke stuck closed. Went to pop the hood, and the hood release cable snapped. Struggled for hours, called an AMC/Eagle dealer…no workaround. Went to my Dad’s shop for metal snips. He asks wtf, get rid of that turd before you break my snips and waste any more money on it.

    TLDR: bought, licensed, insured and loved a $250 AMC Pacer in the haze of adolescence. Should’ve let my friends paint blue flames on it.

    Isn’t that the car they had to remove from the market because it could explode when rear-ended? A bunch of people died i think.

    wrap your heads around that, folks. The baseball MVP got… a Pacer. Nowadays they get a trip to Disneyland, a few kilos of coke and three private planes full of hookers.

    NGL he’s rockin he bowl cut tho.
