Eagle Dealership Video - Anyone seen it?
« on: March 29, 2020, 10:10:00 PM »
I stumbled on it by accident last spring and it was an interactive videodisc for training AMC dealers. The end of the video started to drop out because of disc rot but it was otherwise all there.
I didn't think to download it for safekeeping and now that I need to check something about it the video and another near identical one that faired a bit better for quality have vanished. All I can find now are small portions of the disc like this: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mcaseePns-g

I'd love to find and buy the disc if someone here has it (it's embedded with a very old and very special data encoding that only the first few laserdisc players support) but even if someone knows where the ripped video went I can work with that too. Please tell me I was not the only one who saw it.

You are definitely not the only one that saw it on YT.  I was wondering where it went as well a couple weeks ago when I went searching for it again.  It was a cool video.  I believe it had the "greased incline" demonstrations/ comparisons of the Eagle VC 4-wheel drive system vs. either Subaru or Toyota.

As I have no laserdisc player, I'd love to get a digital version of the video as well if it ever turns-up.

"More Tough Action from American Motors" -- a delightfully '80s Marlboro-man-esque, tough-guy motto.  I know you can hear the guy's voice as you read those words...  :)

Yep, That's the one. There was a section demonstrating how the Eagle could climb a greased incline with the rear wheels spinning and another where they demonstrated no wheel hop.

I am swimming in laserdisc players right now and hoping to get access to a project in the next 6 to 8 months that lets me rip laserdiscs by extracting the signal coming off the laser before it gets turned into a video signal, which would give you the highest possible quality video. It's a big project that a few of my more nerdy friend have been watching get developed  for a few years - https://www.domesday86.com/?page_id=978
