Title: WHICH Eagle should I post :) ?
Post by: Still Pat on April 21, 2017, 09:14:52 PM
No pictures of my first two Eagles (too long ago). Here's my latest 3. Starting with BlackBird(R.I.P.) I bought in 2010(?), White Eagle purchased July 2016 (ANOTHER fatality, just not passed - yet) - terminally ill, & my one good one outta the last 3, '83 Eagle.

Y'all may be thinking Blackbird doesn't look that bad. New taillight & it'll be okay you're saying. Closer pics show the story. When they hit it, they bent the frame & shoved the gas tank up again the axle, so it was fatal.

So on to White Eagle. Doesn't look bad in the pics., right? Didn't look bad up close - TILL I TOOK IT IN FOR INSPECTION! Then, the fun started. Yeah! Fatally wounded!

Now, I FINALLY have a decent (just needs a little 'fine tuning') Eagle, thanks Brandon! '83 wagon, 258/auto. Here's one 'modification I've had done. Buddy of mine made up that panel & installed it with MECHANICAL gauges for me last summer. Did a bunch of other stuff, too. That's the only visible change. Swapped out the font seats, adjusted the back hatch, replaced both mirrors with actual Eagle remote mirrors (he had 'a few'  ;D choice words  :censored: about the passenger's side) and other stuff. Said he had to take the entire dash out just to run the cable. Forgot to post pics. of it. Lemme try this again!

That's a pretty decent Eagle. I had one exactly like it, and even visited Brandon years ago with it. There are photos somewhere of the "twins", but may not be accessible because of the photobucket issue......Rich

Seems to have been a popular paint scheme. I've seen at least 3 or 4 others on spacebook like it.
