My car has a maroon interior, except for the front floor from the drivers side to the passenger side, including the console area.

There it has faded to the color you all are describing.

I live in Missouri, near a little town called Buffalo. Those are some wicked awesome mudding pics! I've almost got my Eagle back on the road, hopefully next week. Just need to fix the brakes... I hate to say it jim, but that is a nasty looking interior color. Guess it's just personal taste. :)

Jim - your 88 has the same color interior as my 87....I call it "peanut-butter" interior.
I am NOT fond of this color myself...reminds me of the car my step-grandma gave me
when I was 10 years old, a faded yellow Mercury Zephyr with 'peanut-butter' interior.
I never liked that car  ;D!
AWESOME mud pics by-the-way!

Hi monsterbronc, I just found this sight,(found it by googling your name monsterbronc) Great photos,  have you found any places to play around KC ? Seen the photos of monsters tipover, did you tell them that you drove it home to Colorado after that? Don't know how often you read these posts, I was just curious if you ever  let anyone know that your father taught you about off roading in the red rocks of southern Utah, and the west deserts of central Utah?

I found a place called Potawotomi off road park, east of Fulton Mo. But its no comparison to the mountains and deserts I grew up in.
I believe there has been mention of running the red rocks with my father, in fact I grew up crusin the desert trails with him my whole childhood. looking for old ghost towns and mines, there are many places I plan to take my kids, House Mtn. for example, you wind up through an ancient cedar forest (ever seen a cedar tree with a 5 foot thick trunk? I would guess the 100 year old maples in my front yard are seedlings compared to these things)to the top where there is a drop off, and one of the best bits of scenery Ive ever seen.and best of all, with all the remote places wev'e been, your truly ALONE.

I also spent ALOT of time in the Moab/Canyonlands area In Utah. Thats where Monster got tipped, but having grew up with it, I was prepared for the worst. Sadly I hear alot of things have been closed down in the Moab area. I recently heard you can no longer Hike to delicate arch and several famous off road trails are shut down. I Know the "Lions Back" got closed.

Me and my wife got married in Colorado, under the trees in a clearing up in the mountains, It may have burned in recent fires. but it just shows how outdoorsy I really am 
thers alot of good trails in Colorado, My dad even took us and a STOCK 96 bronco over the Black Bear Road, no problems. theres alot of abandoned logging/ mine towns all over colorado and utah to find.

Funny thing is, the eagle is the only vehicle I had to modify to do this stuff, and even then its got close to the same ground clearence as the Bronc now. All the severe off road camping/ rock crawlin we did back then was all in Mostly STOCK vehicles, in fact the only suspention mod I did to the bronc was a set of 3/4 ton leafs in the back for haulin, and that probobly actually reduces my travel, but never had a problem.

now that I think about it, including growing up, and my own wheelin, Ive wheeled in Nevada, Utah, Colorado, New Mexico, Arizona, Missouri, and possibly California, Idaho, and Wyoming. But I was really young then And Having written this I have to say I really really miss it, and being here in Mo has given me a sort of "cabin fever" and its driving me insane. I have to move back west, eventually.

now I just have to figure out who Colo-Mtnman is???? I think I know.

Don't think I've put pictures of mine here yet. Might as well put them in here too. Guess that's okay. Nothing new, just another place to put them.

Hi Jesse, first time I noticed you here too.  Sounds like you are getting quite the stash of Eagles and FSJs going there.   8)

j2sax, south of Springfield sounds like maybe Branson area.
There has been talk of a gathering in south MO or northwest AR.
Chantel is near Russellville, and Iowa Eagle needs to make a trip to nw AR.
We have members in central AR and north AR.
Someone mentioned Eureka Springs, and
there is a car museum on Petit Jean Mountain.  it has the Winthrop Rockefeller collection.

Not near your neck of the woods, Fulton, Mo. ( near jct. of I-70 & U.S. Hwy. 54, little south of I-70 ) they have a car museum. Never been in, have seen it driving by on field trips. If anybody ever does a Central Mo. meet, might be worth checking out.

HOw about this?  SMORR.net, the Southwest MO Off Road Ranch.  It's a great place to wheel and gather.  It'd be fun having a bunch of Eagles and Eaglets show up to let them see what we can do! 

Some really easy trails and some challenging ones... could bring the big Wag as well and take turns out in the rougher stuff... good campsites, showers, etc... 

Check out the website, but let's DO something around here!
