Pacers in Europe are between success and anonymity!
I'm the only owner of a Pacer there actually. Somehow proud, but lonely!
Here my Pacer:
I have to restore it, and it will be done by... 2004!
About 2000 came here over, mainly for the show or business people!
Here a sample of the advertisement that made the Pacer such nice butted... car!
Yes, it's BRIGITTE BARDOT
on the Pacer! She owned one for several years, the car has been sold for
26'000 FRF (about 5'000$...) in a French auction back in 1997....
Here another French Pacer,
long owned by Christophe Salvaing!
François Clerget drives since 15 years a Pacer 1976 very good condition, now (1999) by it's original 120.000 kms.
In May 2003, the AMC-Club organized a little meeting in Alsace (in France) where not less the 9 Pacer came. Three of them came from Switzerland and the rest from France. There is about 350 Pacers still registered in the single Ile-de-France region which include Paris...
In France, many Pacers have been loosing their big US engine for a Peugeot -Indenor Diesel engine, helping to have a good MPG (25 mpg) about double of the regular US-ones!
But those cars weren't to much good in performances of course. Those where transformed in Soissons for the exclusive dealer Jean Charles Automobiles.
Having much more power the the Diesel engines for about the same consumption.
The 3 Pacer in the back are German ones. They were brought together for the TV Magazine Motorshow of the VOX-TV! You can download it here as a mpg or here as an avi file (quit big for slow connections).
