4. One of my dads friends still had a 70's AMC Pacer in the mid 80's and I'll tell ya

Despite being one of THE UGLIEST vehicles ever made, that was a SURPRISINGLY comfy and roomy vehicle ... at least, compared to how it looked from the outside. I'd been in some Caddies that felt smaller.

In college in the late 80's one of my neighbors in student housing had a tricked out old Pinto, with a beefy V8 in it ... it was lowered with stiff shocks and sway bars and I'm here to tell ya ... that thing HAULED ASS, and cornered like a MOFO. I can't tell ya how many times I thought I was gonna die in that thing, but dude knew how to drive it (and how to scare the shit outta me). I thought it was a joke at first but I came to respect that vehicle.
