Wayne and Garth never had it so good. The coveted Pacer X model had style and performance even the Mirthmobile couldn’t match. The X model came with a front-sway bar, sport-steering column, vinyl bucket seats, and additional chrome to go with the Pacer X decals. Yes, the decals did actually make it faster. Performance like this can only be improved by blasting “Bohemian Rhapsody” while in the driver’s seat. The “The Flying Fishbowl” runs on a 232-cubic-inch 3.8-liter, inline six and had an available two-barrel carburetor. You could also opt for the punchier 258 I6, but both delivered only 100 horsepower in a 3,000 pound car. Though of modest performance, the Pacer X was a pinnacle of 70’s styling and deserves an honored place in any collection.
