British Columbia documentary about a new public transit system in Vanouver has a three second shot of an Eagle at a stoplight. It was filmed at some point in the summer of 1982.

The documentary is called "Going to Town"

Nice clip of the history of car making in Kenosha.  I haven't watched the whole thing yet.

Not sure if this has been posted here before, but here is a segment from My Classic Car at the Rambler Ranch.  There are some shots of the inside of each of the buildings, and it features two Nash's from the 50's.  Enjoy!

Came across this on YouTube.  I can't understand what is being said because it's all in Russian (?) but it is well produced.  Maybe some Eagles did make it to Russia!!

From 2018, here is an episode of Diesel Brothers where they put a diesel into an 84 Eagle wagon.  I know many people on the Den have talked about such a conversion in the past.

"Heavy D and Diesel Dave source a 1984 AMC Eagle they want to turn into their next big, diesel-powered build."

Season 4, episode 101

You may need to log in through your cable provider to be able to watch it.

I posted this link before I watched the episode.  Unfortunately, they don't tackle putting a diesel in the Eagle in this episode, they just go buy the Eagle and talk about their ten favorite builds.  I looked through more recent episodes and did not find one where they actually do the diesel engine conversion.  The guy that told me about the conversion showed me a picture of what was supposed to be the Eagle done on the show so maybe he'll be able to find the correct episode.

Enjoyed the one on the Gremlins. My '76 was my first new car - drove it today. My dad & his friend couldn't understand why AMC was stupid enough to name it the Gremlin. During WWII bad manufactured parts for the war effort were blamed on the Gremlins. Nice video.
