The Lovable Loser (AMC Pacer Painting) by FastLaneIllustration The Lovable Loser (AMC Pacer Painting) by FastLaneIllustration
Here's my latest painting, and very late Christmas gift to you all. It's a painting featuring a 1977 AMC Pacer, a lovable loser of the malaise era. After waiting all morning for the Methadone Clinic to open followed by a visit to the tree lot, the owner of this AMC Pacer is now getting some last minute Christmas shopping done. I set this painting in the early 1990s, since this is the last time that Pacers were truly abundant on the roads before being scrapped closely to the point of extinction so to speak. And this Pacer pictured above demonstrates what kind of condition that most AMC Pacer's would have succumb to circa. 1994. After many years of neglect and abuse, the owners have received: 
12 years past warranty, 
11 part time jobs, 
10 back seat puke stains, 
9 parking tickets, 
8 failed relationships, 
7 fender benders, 
6 three AM trips to the 7-Eleven, 
5 blown piston rings, 
4 engine rebuilds, 
3 attempts to sell, 
2 transmission swaps, 
in a Pacer that's somehow running. 
For my long time fans, there's an "easter egg" within this painting somewhere that you might have picked up on. Anyway, all Fast Lane Illustration artwork by Ryan Glen Sardachuk.
