Never Look Back - '75 Turbo LS AMC Pacer - LS Fest West

By: Ray Frescas | 05/23/2019 < Back to Motor Life Home

Do it baby do it! Light em up! Light em up! The more money you spend sometimes the less fun it gets. I'm Dick Hamm and we're at LS Fest in Vegas. This is my first time at LS Fest and it probably shouldn't be because I live in Tuscon, which is not that far away, and it won't be my last one I'll tell you that. It's a 75 AMC Pacer, got a 2001 Gen 3 5.3, flipped it over an put a cam and put some valve springs I got from a swap meet in it and then TH400 and an 8.5 clickless that’s welded up.

Yeah, we just went 107 in the 60 foot, made some changes, I've been kind of slowly getting into it. Tuning-wise it's fresh, I just built it in 16 days. Did a video each day on my YouTube channel and pretty much thrashed as hard as I could to get here and not only that but apparently it's staying together and steadily going faster so I couldn't be happier. 

Interestingly enough me and my best friend James are kind of normal car guys and over the years it just seems like we keep getting into more abstract things so when this came up on Craigslist we picked it up and then went ahead and got to thrashing to get it out here so it's kind of like choosing something oddball and different that was also something that I do think is cool.

It took me a little while but I am definitely into it. I have a 71' GTO that's a really pretty car and I enjoy it very much, I've had it since I was 19, day to day, this is the car that you want. Not necessarily this one is for you, whatever you chose, choose something you like, go out there, have fun, race with your family, race with your friends, get into it, get involved, and just never look back.

Keep smiling and have fun.
