Posted on Doug's Eagle Companion page, posting on other Eagle pages, J.I.C. FINALLY got done with the insurance company. They're gonna give me $2,500.00 & I keep BlackBird. I'm offering the remains as a parts Eagle for $500.00. Bring C.I.F. & a trailer, I'm keeping my aluminum valve cover & hubcaps. Was running/driving when hit. Rear main leaks (bad), carb needed rebuilt/replaced. For those who may not know, it's an '86 Eagle wagon. 258/Auto. Pics. of the remains are posted on the Eagle Companion page (somewhere, I've 'only' been "discussing" this with them for about a month now May 20? 21? was when it got hit.

Pat (Formerly known as 1 Old Ford Man) here. Y'all may remember me & my story from The Nest or may know me from Evo (or both). I made a mistake & it cost me some big bucks. BlackBird is here with me now, after sitting about 3 years untouched. No 360 in it, gave it away because I had no place to store it. BlackBird is getting a little done (VERY) slowly. Started small, trying to get the chrome back to dhrome. Got most of it done, got two new tires on, still need to get the strut rod bushings done, then an alignment, after that, two more new tires & I can start putting some miles on it. Old tires are cracked & dry rotted from sitting in a field for almost 3 years. I drive around here once in a while, scared to trust these tires very far or very fast. Anyway, for pics of it when I first got it & the little bit I've done so far, here's my album. Changed my name here for simplicity. Makes it easier to just use my name.

Never even realized it was listed here too!  Thanks, Ken. It can be moved to the "SOLD" section. Long gone now.
