Re: I loved my AMC Pacer
In Response To: I loved my AMC Pacer ()

When I was in the Milwaukee plant they had 5 or 6 floors of unused space since they no longer did body production (we mostly did stampings). So those floors became dead storage. There was some strange, old stuff there. Like welding machines from the 1940's and cast offs from the design group. One piece I remember was a prototype body that was a cross between a pacer and another vehicle and it was really sharp. And the body was made of aluminum. Unfortunately they hauled it and the other prototype bodies from the 1960's to the scrap heap. Can you imagine what an avid car collector would pay for a one of a kind prototype?

BTW - AMC was never a driving force in the market but to show you how smart Iacocca was, he paid $1 Billion for AMC which included the Jeep line. I happened to notice that the yearly report the next year said that Chrysler earned $1 billion JUST from Jeep that year. Not a bad payback.
