Due to the fact 1978 Chevrolet Corvette Pace Cars were predicted to be a future collectible, many were put into long term storage and driven very rarely. This particular example was driven only 13 miles.
Ever stumbled across a "pickup truck rally" on your way through the woods to go hunting? We haven't either, but behind the wheel of a 1978 Jeep Pickup truck you would be ready if you did.
Even if you are the family chauffeur, you won't mind if you're behind the wheel of the 1978 Jeep Cherokee, at least not if you have the same combination of caffeine, illicit drugs and crazy as the mother in this vintage commercial.
What was it about owners of the 1978 AMC Pacer that set them apart? A rational person might answer this question by pointing out they were among the few actually willing to purchase a brand new Pacer wagon.

Welcome to Down On The Street, where we admire old vehicles on the streets of the Island That Rust Forgot: Alameda, California. Many Americans bought gas-sipping Colts and Chevettes when Malaise fuel prices hit… but some stayed with big Buicks!
This magician dude might as well pop Fool For The City into the 8-track and start tokin' on his Carbonga™ Mobile Bong, because that custom paint job has no business on a van that will be hauling serious cargo.
While some are hoping to get big bucks for early Civics, the harsh reality is that lovers of vintage Japanese iron haven't really embraced the little car that changed the entire automotive landscape during the Malaise Era.
Don "The Snake" Prudhomme did pretty well with his Arrow… and somehow the success of a vaguely Arrow-shaped Funny Car implied that the street version of the badge-engineered Mitsubishi Celeste would also be, you know, not too slow.
Sure, some folks will get all excited about some BMW or other, but the real LeMons cognoscenti know the Index Of Effuency is what matters. Congratulations, Black Knight Racing: It's Just A Flesh Wound!
