The Car: 1979 AMC Pacer D/L Limited wagon

I don’t just like American Motors Pacers, I love ‘em. From the first time I sat in one at an auto show, I was smitten. It was like someone designed a car to fit me and it felt great.

The following year I special-ordered a yellow 1976 Pacer X from Harvey Thompson, of Alexander Ambassador in Windsor, the salesperson who years before had asked me to buy a car from him when I became old enough to drive.

Back then he was at El Rancho Rambler, in Windsor’s Riverside neighbourhood.

  Eye Candy: 1972 Mazda RX-3 I name my race cars, as I’m well past the point of having my own name on them. The human inspiration here was the youngest of my great uncles, the “loud, fun one,” and if you’ve ever heard an uncorked rotary engine, you’d realize just how fitting the namesake is.Occupation: Automotive journalist, racer and race-driving instructor.

I wasn’t able to keep my specially ordered car for more than a few years, and not having a Pacer ate at me for a long time.

So I put every dollar I could into a fund, which allowed me to rescue a black and silver ‘77 Pacer coupe from southeast of Edmonton. That car is a very long-term project, but at least I have had it to admire.

The need to have a Pacer I could actually drive on the street led me to buy a rather rare model from a friend in Northern Ramblers, the pre-eminent AMC club in Canada. Next weekend the club hosts its annual meet and show at Haugen’s BBQ in Manchester, Ont., near Port Perry, on Saturday, June 9. It’s a great place to see some cool American Motors cars in person.

Sure seems like in the ’70s in here. The Limited models like Tim Rusling’s D/L (Deluxe) wagon were only sold in the Pacer’s last two years of production. They came with thicker carpeting (but not quite shag), power windows, power door locks, leather-and-corduroy front seats and leather rear seats.

Not long ago a teenage girl thought it was a new car that she’d never heard of, which made my day. More people seem to like Pacers now than a generation ago.

Wayne Campbell (Mike Myers) and his friends famously sang and head banged along to Queen’s Bohemian Rhapsody as they cruised in a Pacer in the 1992 movie Wayne’s World. That 1976 Pacer sold at auction in 2016 for $37,400 (U.S.)

My wagon is a time capsule which makes me feel good just driving it gently through local neighbourhoods.

Eye Candy: 1965 Porsche 356 C .
Roy Wright: Wheels Reader Occupation: Retired graphic artist and art instructor The Car: 1965 Porsche 356 C The 356 was Porsche’s first sports car design. It was introduced in 1948 and had a 17-year run, ending in 1965. The final year of the 356’s evolution had the car sporting all-around disc brakes and a 1,600 cc boxer engine. The story of my Porsche 356 began when I was a teenager and art student. It was not uncommon in 1958 to see a 356 driving around the streets of Toronto. I was smitten by the uniquely gorgeous shapes of both the cabriolet and coupes.
