Welcome to Good Burger, home of the Good Burger, may I take your ooo-hell no, the Burgermobile has been reduced to a rustling hulk of sadness!

A jalopnik reader with an eye for '90s nostalgia emailed this week to share a vague Facebook Marketplace ad for a 1975 AMC Pacer just described "Good Burger mobile from Nickelodeon's 1997 movie Good Burger" [sic] and yeah, there's really no mistaking that particular pacer despite the fact that it looks like it's been sitting in front of an oceanside parking lot since the movie came out.

"Good Burger," which is based on Nickelodeon's Saturday Night Live for kids. Coming back to you yet? Keenan Thompson and Kel Mitchell work at a homely burger joint and end up being a little kid with a big corporation, I think. It's' 90s classic without a doubt, and I like to think of it as fondly as I do.

Sinbad's shirt was the star of this movie, but the AMC Pacer with a giant burger mounted on it's hood, known as the (what else?) Burgermobile was a close second.

Pacer from Wayne's World. (Turns out, no, the Mirthmobile got a really nice restoration and what sold at a Barrett Jackson auction in 2016.)

Anyway, the Burgermobile is on sale in Florida now. Karl, who's been selling the car for a while, has "bought it off someone's movie" 12 years ago. As you can tell from the pictures, it has not moved a whole lot since then.

Looks like a pretty gnarly restoration project, but then again, '90s nostalgia is now ready to take this on. How hard can it be to find Pacer parts?

Has tip to Billy!
