In the forest of North Sweden’s coastal area is an abandoned sawmill. The sawdust is gone and no one longer works here. But they left something really cool! See the pictures.

abandoned-sawmill-2Sawmills of this kind were very common on the coast of northern Sweden during the 1800s industrialization. The timber they sawed at this place came from the inner forests in Sweden.abandoned-sawmill-4

A large amount of timber was floated in streams and rivers to the coast. At the coast were also many factories that had a great demand for timber to produce pulp.abandoned-sawmill-3
The sawmill, which later appears to have been some kind of mechanical workshop, has been left adrift. Probably a lot of toxins in the soil.

That didn’t stop Pizza Hut in the United States to use the Pacer as a delivery car.abandoned-sawmill-amc-pacer-2

If the Pacer was designed in a different way, it had probably been forgotten. 37% of the body of an AMC Pacer consisted of glass. This has given a variety of nicknames, such as a mobile hamster, Moon Buggy, and egg on wheels.

One detail that enhances the car’s ugliness is that the passenger door is noticeably longer than the driver’s door. It is to make it easier to reach the back seat.
