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.

At the meeting in Alsace was only a unique engine in a Pacer: a Chrysler-France 2 liters... chry.jpg (141164 bytes)----->moteur4cyl.jpg (340981 bytes) pacer4cyl.jpg (48294 bytes)

Having much more power the the Diesel engines for about the same consumption.

SCANDINAVIA: Pacer where really appreciate over there as they could fit into a special law by condemning the rear seat and get therefore a low taxing! It seems there is still about 200 in Denmark and in Sweden... Contact the local AMC Club!

ITALIA: It seems there is at least 5 Pacer...

That one came from Germany and is now in Italy! Meet his owner!

ENGLAND: A Pacer has been seen by the President of the AMC PACER and GREMLIN club a few years ago!
