Pacer Wagon - Camp Racemore

Recommended Posts

Still have some things to finish up on the Pacer Wagon for NNL West's wagon theme.

Vette suspension, a Toyota 2JZ-GTE engine and a bunch of weathering. Front splitter and rear diffuser are 3D printed.

Nice job, car looks real! But I can't imagine anyone spending that much money on making a REAL Pacer look like this.

That's what makes model cars so much fun, right?😉

Sometimes cars can get so ugly they start to look cool. Case in point.

Thanks, fellas! Yeah, I remember visiting my half-brother in Hawaii in '77, and he had one of these to haul the family around Oahu in. Pretty sure his was silver/black two-tone, but I have memories of a burgundy velour interior... classy.
Looking back at it now, it definitely predicts the crossover SUV's that came later. I mean, it wasn't proportioned like any other wagon at the time, but it has a wide track, dual wishbone front suspension with rack and pinion steering, and room to set that inline six well back under the dash/cowl area. Mostly, it just looks like fun, right?

Cool model! My friend worked for an AMC dealer back then so I got to play with these. A six cylinder 4 speed Pacer was a lotta fun!

I added the exhaust, roof tie-down, and a few other bits. Going to call it done.
