What were they thinking? AMC Pacer

October 9, 2008

With this entry, I would like to introduce what will be a semi-regular feature. The "What were they thinking?" series will be about cars that are, let's just say, not universally appreciated but still very unique and interesting. Your suggestions for entries are welcome.
