Y'all may be thinking Blackbird doesn't look that bad. New taillight & it'll be okay you're saying. Closer pics show the story. When they hit it, they bent the frame & shoved the gas tank up again the axle, so it was fatal.

Now, I FINALLY have a decent (just needs a little 'fine tuning') Eagle, thanks Brandon! '83 wagon, 258/auto. Here's one 'modification I've had done. Buddy of mine made up that panel & installed it with MECHANICAL gauges for me last summer. Did a bunch of other stuff, too. That's the only visible change. Swapped out the font seats, adjusted the back hatch, replaced both mirrors with actual Eagle remote mirrors (he had 'a few'  ;D choice words  :censored: about the passenger's side) and other stuff. Said he had to take the entire dash out just to run the cable. Forgot to post pics. of it. Lemme try this again!

That's a pretty decent Eagle. I had one exactly like it, and even visited Brandon years ago with it. There are photos somewhere of the "twins", but may not be accessible because of the photobucket issue......Rich

Seems to have been a popular paint scheme. I've seen at least 3 or 4 others on spacebook like it.

Recent (last week car show) pic. While I'm at it, I'm looking for that missing chrome for the rear door. Anybody? Bought a REAL Motorcraft from somebody here that went fuel injection. Had it cleaned up & installed end of Dec./first part of Jan. Runs SO MUCH better, I can pull away from a stop sign or take an off ramp WITHOUT it dying now!! Anyway, again, HOPE the pics. all went through from the show & this is the only one I took of the Eagle.

LOOKS LIKE I did it!!! That was AFTER I 'loaded'(?) it into the computer from spacebook. I have ALL the show pics. under spacebook & it would take (me) forever & 33 days to load them one at a time & then post them here. IF somebody computer literate can, I posted today.
