New to Forum in Michigan
« on: October 04, 2017, 09:18:57 AM »
Hello Fellow Eagle Owners,

I'm new to this forum but not new to the AMC Eagle SX/4.  In 82' and 83' I was the co-driver of an Eagle on the AMC Pro Rally Team with Gene Henderson.  A picture of our rally car back then is attached.  I recently came across and purchased an 83' SX/4, a picture of which is also attached.  I plan to put it into the same paint scheme as our rally car and have some fun with it.

I was really glad to find this forum as a source of information and parts.  I'll look forward to interacting with ya'll.

Cheers,
Jim Kloosterman

Yes, I have run in the 100 Acre Wood Rally several times including in the Eagle.  Somewhere in the piles... I have a photo of the Eagle taken at 100 Acre Wood.  I'll see if I can find it and get it scanned so I can attach it.

Cheers,
Jim

Nice to see someone else in SE Michigan, let me know if you need any parts (I might have some of what you need).  Would love to see you around the LSPR.
