Ditto.  Just watching my car covers flap around in the wind from Harvey.   No shingles gone yet!!    I'm way up high on the Devil's Backbone ridge; so buckets of rain are not a worry.

hey, c'mon guys, it's ALL GOOD!, there are few of us, but there are still enough of us to remain a community. Remember, there are fewer and fewer Eagles out there every year. That.s not what we wish, but that is the reality. So, growth, or "GROWTH". in the capitalist sense is not an option for us.. There will be, in the fullness of time, fewer and fewer, Eagles. and Eagle owners out there. Just like there are fewer and fewer Corvair owners, fewer and fewer Nash owners, etc. It comes with the territory. The newest Eagle is now an honest 30 years old, and the best that can be said, is that that there are STILL, a few running around as just regular used cars.  What we are seeing is the decline of "new" Eagle owners, mostly casual types, who bought an old rusted, hacked Eagle, and hope that with a few wise words, we can get their car to run "like new"! Well, we know that is not possible, but, hey, we try! right?
Point is, we are still here, the few, the proud, the weird....and hopefully we will be here for a while longer, (I'm 57).
good luck y'all, gz

Hey guys, don't give up yet - I need you! I've only been in the Eagle game for about a year, but I am really having fun with it.  Except that oil pan job, that stunk.  ;) 

One thing I noticed when I was reading through all the old project threads is that they mostly end sadly.  Folks will post a bunch about their awesome work, and then suddenly announce they are selling or moving on.  I guess that's just the reality of life, and let's face it these cars are on the fringe which makes restoration tough and likely unprofitable.

Not sure what we can do to find more members, but I for one will keep posting about my project.  It hasn't scared me away yet, or I'm too stubborn to give up.

I just deleted that Russian post - was a sales spiel.   I guess the Ruskies are interested in us!!    My fun for the day.

My wife uses the Eagle as a daily driver.
I'm new here... Bought our Eagle a few months back because my wife wanted "something different" to drive.  I wanted to buy a Wrangler or CJ for her but she said that she didn't want to meet herself at every intersection in town.  So far we have made many changes and upgrades to personalize what we now call our "Beagle" and we plan to keep it in tip top condition.    I will be around this forum for a good long while.

Hello,
     I also am not dead yet  :o :o ... I still visit the site often, though don't login unless I have something to say.  I still have 7 Eagles in the yard with hopes of driving one again soon. This site cannot be duplicated and is a valuable asset to all its members and those who visit here.
                                                                                                                                               Regards to all, Iron Horse :o
