Now’s Your Chance to Buy the AMC Pacer from ‘Wayne’s World’

Oct 12, 2016

Forget Tesla and self-driving cars.

The 1976 AMC Pacer from Wayne's World is up for sale at Barrett-Jackson's car collection in Las Vegas later this month. The restored car comes with the famous ceiling-mounted licorice dispenser, flame decals, and mismatched chrome wheels. The Pacer even includes its camera mounts from the movie. The only part not true to the movie is the upgraded speaker and stereo system.

The sky blue pacer, or Mirthmobile, became a cultural icon after it was featured in the opening sequence of the 1992 cult classic, where Wayne (Mike Myers) and Garth (Dana Carvey) gleefully sing along to Queen's "Bohemian Rhapsody" with their friends. Since then, both the sequence and car have been parodied and copied, and references to the car have been made in video games like Grand Theft Auto 5.

It's unclear exactly how much the car will sell for, though Bloomberg reports a Pacer kept in the best condition could be worth around $15,000.

Despite the Mirthmobile's popularity, it's widely considered one of the ugliest cars ever made. Still, this particular Pacer's sentimental value is likely to carry its price upward. Just look at the Volkswagen van from That '70s Show: Barrett-Jackson sold it for over $28,000 about 11 years ago, though the vans were worth around $12,000 to $18,000 at the time.

Gold and Silver Pawn Shop first bought the Pacer during a Pawn Stars segment that aired last year on the History channel. Gold and Silver purchased the car for $9,500 at the time. Its previous owner received the car as a prize in 1992 from MTV.
