Random Chance Eagle
« on: October 25, 2022, 08:38:10 PM »
Most interesting thing today, was driving home from the grocery store and saw some bright orange old box of a car a few cars ahead, kept trying to get a glance to figure out what exactly it was. Well got closer and closer and saw it was another AMC Eagle Sedan like mine, but rattle can bright orange! So I switch lanes, downshift and zip up behind them as fast as a 258 can and beep the horn a few times, lowering the window so I can give a friendly wave towards them so they don't think I'm nuts. I see them lean forward to check the mirror, probably have the same mirror issue I'm having. They roll down their window and just wave on back. They switch lanes, I pull up next to them and roll down the other window and we yell back and forth for a good 10-15 seconds, speed limit was only 30 and it ain't like these cars are very loud. Compliment each others Eagle and part ways, they went to Walmart and I went home!

So if you own a spray painted bright orange Eagle but you aren't listed as living in Laramie, howdy! And if they aren't part of this forum, if I see them again I'm going to let them know this place exists.

There used to be a four-door one that was like that here in Pueblo. I wonder if it's the same one.
