Well, Hello
« on: March 16, 2021, 11:59:37 PM »
Managed to get my hands on an 83 about a week after learning what eagles were, super lucky. Had it for a few months now, finally getting to work towards getting it on the road so I'mma get involved in the community. Also, almost no rust on 'er, just a bad run in with rats after being parked long enough for the paint to fade away :-\, not sure if any wires didn't get chewed, and vacuum...gone. Super glad there's a community like this! And finally, hello from Missouri!
