1978 AMC Pacer Pizza Delivery Car (painting) by FastLaneIllustration 1978 AMC Pacer Pizza Delivery Car (painting) by FastLaneIllustration
Here's my latest painting. It's a 1978 AMC Pacer that has seen better days, now serving as a beat up delivery car for Domino's Pizza. In the modern era where people take more pride in their phones than their cars, there are only a few Pacers that are still roadworthy with the rest either in the dump, or already turned into garden shears. This car is an anomaly because of the fact that it still runs, especially when it's questionable build quality and premature breakdown problems are factored in. nobody said it ran well, but it's still got a breath in it's body. The Pacer itself was not a bad idea as a car, because it was actually quite practical, and spacious for a compact car. It's visibility is second to none, because of it's large window arrangement... However it's abnormally large windows made it downright hard for "stealth nose picking" in traffic and the car gained itself many nicknames like "the fishbowl on wheels." The background is a strip mall scene, which is not horribly unfamiliar to my gallery, but if you look closer, there are very satirical takes on some of the everyday products that we buy from these strip malls. On top of that, there are also a few discreet references to other cars hidden among the surroundings: the words you are looking for are; Charger, Chevrolet, and GTX. have fun finding them. Anyway, all Fast Lane Design artwork by Ryan Sardachuk. Click the link to become a fan of Fast Lane Design on facebook.

Wow, my dad had one of those. Weird car to drive. Has a good low end but no speed. Big tires and crappy steering. Kind of like a tractor.

Great Water Color. I love the beige hatch. I wonder how many still exist?

Parked or driving on a sunny day, all that glass turned it into a rolling greenhouse.

i have a model i built of one of these, neat!, the passenger door's on these were about 3 inches longer than the driver's door, amc's reason,,, this was done for easier access for passenger's to enter and exit on the curbside
