I wouldn't be angry if they said ugliest, but they were good cars, I know a guy who owned one and drove it every day for 15 years, a 78 Pacer Wagon 258

That doesn't mean it was a great car. You have a very unique preference in cars. Most people don't share it.

The Pacer was very likely classified very poorly for ALOT of reasons. Overweight, underpowered, crappy trans. Poor handling, ugly car, poor access (2-door), poor gas mileage, and the list goes on and on. In fact, these items may very well describe AMC/EAGLE models galore.

I'm old enough to have personal experience in most of these cars when they were NEW. Everyone needs a hobby, so if that'* what floats your boat, stick with it. You may just have to ignore the harsh realities to maintain your happiness.

Again I say how do you know they were good cars. You were not even born yet!

Pacer'* suck kid, get over it You can find a couple examples of anything that have run well, but that doesn't mean it'* a good car. Clarkson calls the LeSabre one of the worst cars he'* ever driven as well..

And our time hasn't come with respect to top gear, the season that they're showing in america (season is from Spring 2006.

They will not be full EPs, as full EPs are 60 min long beause they're commercial free on BBC2 UK.
It'* 1.5 years old.
Just DL it at highish definition and enjoy it on the computer
