Met up with Trucker79005 (Laura) and her husband on Thursday on their way through town.  She has a great deal of enthusiasm for Eagles that is great to see!  She purchased some seats from me that I saved from an SX/4 in the junkyard this spring and she will install them in her 1978 Concord.  They were on their way up to Wyoming to meet up with TooSlowinWyo and pick up a parts wagon that he has.  Then they are on to Washington to pick up another Eagle.

Great folks and its inspiring to see someone that likes Eagles so much!  Best of luck to them and wishing them save travels!

Yes, I believe you can swap the tracks from the 2WD car and it will work.  I know the seats in the SX/4 and Kammback seem to be the same as Spirit seats, but yes, you need the base/tracks from the 2WD to make it work.

She called me for a meet up in SLC, but we were actually going to Denver that weekend so missed them. I think they were on their way back to home with the Washington Eagle when they were coming through Utah.
