Why the Pacer was Perfect for Wayne’s World
In 1992, the AMC Pacer made one of its most famous movie appearances. While the car had appeared in a few episodes of Remington Steele and the Rockford Files, it had not earned a spot as a memorable movie car until Garth drove the car. While it may not be a “star” like Bandit or the Back to the Future car, the AMC Pacer developed a little bit of cool that it did not have before that movie was released. If you really think about cars that have made major appearances in movies, you might be able to select a few other models that could fill the same role. Could you imagine Bandit being a Camaro? Couldn’t the Back to the Future car be a Corvette? They could. But the AMC Pacer in Wayne’s World could not be replaced, it really is a perfect car for Garth Algar. Here are a few reasons why:
Leonardo Dicaprio Movie Cars
Leonardo Dicaprio is one of the most talented modern-day actors. Since he plays major roles in many period-piece films, he often finds himself being able to enjoy driving classic vehicles. Interestingly, the very first car he ever owned was a Ford Mustang from the 1960s. Moving many years into the future, he now is personally involved in environmental issues and he personally drives cars that are environmentally friendly.

Classic Car InsuranceIf you own a classic car or an antique car, you have an expensive hobby. Taking care of that car, or cars if you have a collection, takes time and money. To protect your hobby and your investment, having insurance is essential. A typical insurance policy, like one you would get for your newer car that you use regularly is not a great option for a special car. You really need to get classic car insurance to ensure that you get the best protection.
The Landau Roof
In the 1970s and the 1980s, the landau top was a popular, yet confusing design style. But, the original use of the word landau is quite different. It was originally a reference to a carriage and the term is still used in the United Kingdom when referencing the royal carriages. In the 1950s, the Nash Rambler actually came with a removeable landau top that slid back from the windshield and stowed away in the trunk. If you drove past the Rambler with the landau removed, you might not even notice because of the unusual look. Later, the landau was a style design that took the place of the C-pillars in the rear of the car. In the 1970s and 1980s, the landau top became synonymous with a fake convertible. These were some of the cars that wore the landau top with some sort of pride:
