I'm not a great fan of conversions, but... I must admit I really like this one.

I like both of the Gremlins.  I like small pickup trucks, and I find conversions interesting.  There was a guy that used to deliver new phone books to our neighborhood when I was in high school who had a 4th Generation Dodge Colt that was converted to a pickup.  The shop he bought it from built small pickups out of Colts and Honda civics.  I am not sure I would have a use for such a small pickup, but I think it worked perfectly for his delivery job.

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.

Ha Ha, yeah, I didn't really care to clean up the background  :)  Pay no attention to the man behind the curtain...

if i could find a wagon, id be all for doing such a conversion. im thinking a roll bar looking support like the suby baja's have. i have looked at them alot. i think that could be possible for the structure. plus some extra bracing under. a set of air shocks with an on board compressor to adjust, and youd be good to haul the 4.0's and 4.2's from the scrap yard to build your 4.6's for your other eagle projects right? (along with all the other parts you got from any other eagle found in the scrap yard)

Anyone have a picture of the bracing that was used on the undercarriage of the Sundancers?  I think a crossbar like the sundancers have would be useful in making a pickup out of an Eagle.

Here we go with opinions again.  I think that third picture is really cool, but personally I
wouldn't want to see a good Eagle cut up and modified.
If it couldn't be saved as is, yes, go for it.
Once again, though, if it is yours you can do what you want with it, and I'll
support you. 
I will stop short of saying I'll defend it to the death. :o
I'm right 98% of the time, and I don't care about the other 3%.
