It's up to over $75K now!
 
While I'll admit it's got a cool history (can you imagine having pictures of your car being built!), I gotta wonder...
 
Where do you keep a car like this for 29 years?
 
How often do you change fluids?
 
How much are you willing to pay to put personalized plates on a car year after year that you don't drive?
 
Lastly, if you look at the picture of the speedometer, there is a noticible gap between the speedometer bezel and the rest of the dash.  Is this a typical quality issue for Pacers, or does this beg the question as to whether or not those are actual miles....?

Thats normal for the poor quality in the plastic fit of the dash in these cars, but wow $75k, this is gonna be fun to watch.

I watched the original owner sell that Pacer a few months ago on ebay.  Very interesting story behind it.  He was saving the Vette for his son Mark, but his son was killed by a Mountain Lion while biking. Theres one scratch on the passengers side made by his son, and he never had it fixed in memory of his son Unhappy

[/QUOTE] I remember that ebay auction, too. It didn't hit reserve. Ended up at Barret Jackson where it sold for LESS than the ebay bidding(don't remember what it sold for). Guy selling it now's trying to make a killing!!

edit: sold for $26250 at BJ. The earlier ebay bidding hit $31000.
