Hello from Alberta
« on: December 12, 2021, 10:31:19 PM »
Glad to be here! Information on these cars is hard to find, and I hope to learn and help others with modifying and fixing these cars. My father in law has 5 wagons, and he gave me a 1980 wagon that had a siezed engine and brakes to take on a beater car challenge that would see us drive 1000km round trip. Sadly we did not make it, but after fixing and driving this thing I have grown very fond of it. I hope to fix one up from all of the best parts, and sell the rest eventually. When I get some time I will do a thread with my project and photos, but for now here it is finally roadworthy.

Oh neat. Another Eagle in the Canadian PNW!
We're here to help. We might not be as active as we were a decade ago but we're here. :P

I am guilty of the same, but will be much more active now. Just finished my project thread, and am posting that next.
