Pacer!


Oh, good. I was looking for a house that came with... stuff. Like, a bike pump, great. Yeah, and a half-dead plant, perfect. And a... wagon? And a... basket?

Okay, not really. But there's one thing that isn't in the listing itself -- it's in the Google Street View of the house -- that I really do want.

Look!

A Pacer!

A real live Pacer!

As a former Pinto-owner, I say: hellooo, Pacer!



UPDATE: I'm wrong. It's not a Pacer. This house is useless.

That's not a Pacer...some sort of Datsun or something.

That looks more like a scooter than a bicycle pump handle. Which of course makes much more sense in the context of the fern.

Also, at first, I thought the title was Pace!, not Pacer!

Uhh, Sara?

...that's a Nissan 300ZX.

This is an AMC Pacer:

I hate to say it, but I think that's a Nissan/Datsun 300ZX.

Bicycle pump? Ok, I can buy that, but I was thinking it was a collapsible scooter, like that razor brand that was so popular. I guess they're either bicycle enthusiasts or they have kids.

Pacer?! I wish! The red car in front is a mid/late 80's Nissan Z...

My heart is broken.

The world is so much more boring than I thought.

Is the garage so filled with garbage this it is seeping out from under the garage door?

I wonder if something is lurking in the fireplace & all the stuff is there to appease it..........

Pacer! LOL, My hubby and I both owned Turismos in the 80's, best little go-buggy ever!!

And how weird is that, we didn't know each other, and bought our cars in different states, but both owned the same obscure vehicle!

My friend had a bubble-back Capri, that thing could fly!

Hmmm, that house is just a few miles from my house... hmmm...

Yes, the garage is full and throwing up. Nothing a leaf blower couldn't cure. That is if your leaf-blower is the size of an AMC Pacer with a Nissan engine. :)

Sara said...

It's not a Pacer! It's not a bicycle pump! It's not a grave!

I need new contacts.

Aww..Pacers, that brings back memories. My mom and dad had one and let me tell you the doors on those things are heavy. I nearly got my little legs crushed one day when the door shut on me. :)

As a former owner of both a Vega AND a Pinto, even I would not want an AMC car. Although, I did know someone with a really cool Gremlin once. ohj

Ok, will all the Pace, Nissan and scooter drivers please step forward?
Thank you!

That is a Nissan 300 ZX with T tops, I should know it was my first car. Granted it had seen more years than I had when it came into my possession, two things were certain: This car is a Cocaine mobile and if it where the 80's I would not have been driving it or capable of affording it.

"This house is useless" made me snort a little too loudly for my office. Stop getting me in trouble! ;)

HEY! I had that car (and it's true; it's an 80's model Nissan 300zx) and it was AWESOME. It had a digital dash and it talked! It was the car of the future... from the 80s... that I drove in High School in 2000-2001. But seriously, it was a nice light little sports car that hauled ass and was good on gas. That rhymes! And thanks to this forwarded post, I'm probably going to spend the rest of my day at work looking for them on craigslist.
