LOL I love Back To The Future, only here it's, "Look, it's pLaYtHiNg, only NEW!!"  LOL I don't think that Eagle had the power bulge hood, though, if I remember correctly.   8)

When I bought the Eagle Nikki did not understand what I was talking about describing it.  Not wanting to go out in the cold I pulled out the copy of Back to the Future and went to the scene when Jennifer's Dad picks her up after Marty gets the flyer about the saving the clock tower.  Nikki's response: Oh my god you bought a station wagon!"

On the "SPEED" channel, on PINKS ALL OUT, I've seen a lot of AMC's racing. It's not a bad show really.

I just watched Back to the Future last night for about the 1000th time and that was the first time I noticed the Eagle wagon.  But its probably the first time I've seen the movie since I became an Eagle owner.  Still one of my all time favorite movies!

I remember liking that Eagle when I was little.  I noticed it the first time I saw the movie.  WHat took time was noticing all the other AMCs in that same sequence.  There is a New Cherokee, Wrangler and Grand Cherokee if I remember correctly.  I believe AMC paid for the spot.

Also in the terminator Sarah and Reese use a Gremlin as a get-away car after they leave the jail, and push it down a hill to lose the car

I was watching the Unsolved Mysteries marathon on Spike this last week, and I may be crazy, but I believe there was a case of a murdered man and missing woman that the re-enactments had a 50's Ambassador in it that the man was killed in.  I thought it was an American at first, but they did not make the American in 4 door in that body style. 

I also got the new Click and Clack (Tom and Ray Magliozzi,) Ask Click and Click: Answers from Car Talk.  They mention AMC a couple of times.  I need to look back tru the book, but I remember one of the comment eing unfavorable to AMC.  Another one mentioned that if they could have any car they would want an Rambler Rebel.  And the Pacer was mentioned an featurewd via drawing a couple of times. 

That book was entertaining, and I read it in 2 short sittings...  hard to put down.

I was watching an episode from season 1 (1982 I think) of Wild America with Marty Stoufer yesterday where he was standing in front of a road giving a "save the world" speech when my wife says "Isn't that an Eagle driving behind him".  Sure enough it was.  Not 10 seconds later a pacer drives behind him too.  I had a very busy day.   ;D
