a fun way to get weird looks from people
« on: March 30, 2012, 09:59:11 PM »
on my way to work today i got a lot of weird looks from people (some of which i thought their head would fall of because of how far they craning their necks). now i'm sure all of them were because of Eagle Eyes but some of them probably wouldn't have even noticed her if i hadn't had the radio cranked listening to The Stroke by Billy Squier with the windows down.

That is one way to attract attention.  I thought about having "Fly Like an Eagle" by Steve Miller band playing in my Eagle when I take it to Coffee Cruise in this season.  Thought about it last season, but never took the Eagle to any shows last season.

I no longer have an AMC Eagle, but I am still a fan.

After our fiasco with the Toyota Corolla I got for my wife I believe I am done with Japanese vehicles.

Dude you are preaching to a choir member that is close to becoming an AMC Minister if you know what I mean.

the weird looks get better when you start singing along with the song at the top of your voice. :rotfl:

You need a black trans am, a Journey T-shirt, and an acid washed jean jacket to pull that one off,  :rotfl: .


Sorry had to say it, lol. Lets just say, every time Bohemian Rapsody is on the radio, the GF has a tendency to crank it if we're in the SX/4  :laughing1: .

lol, awesome, I have to admit part of the draw to his movies is the "forgotten" american iron that seems to plague them.

Sadly, that was my ex-wife and my song. At our wedding it was what we called on for the first dance. We had a real ballroom blitz!

(that was 1978. I remarried 17 years ago quite happily)
