On the Hagerty Insurance website, they have pictures from last week's Dream Cruise in Detroit.  Included was this picture of an SX/4




Stole my IDEA! I want to do an Eagle Mural on the hood of my car when I'm done!

Here is a segment in Hagerty's Barn find series that includes a visit to the Rambler Ranch.  It's too bad they didn't spend more time inside the buildings with the nice cars.

Cool article on Hagerty regarding the AMC Hornet doing the "Astro Spiral Jump" in the James Bond Movie "Man with the Golden Gun" and the work that led up to doing the stunt.

Looks like they picked the right car for a road trip across post-apocalyptic Wisconsin. But what's the deal with that side mirror?

Cool to see the Eagle in there.  Is there a Matador also, looks like the headlights from the later year Matadors.

Saw an eagle wagon in the parking lot of "Diesel Brothers" season 4 episode 1
towards the end of the show when they are throwing the rubber run flat insert around with Bobcats.
