What an awesome article.  "While mechanical parts are still easy to find (because much of it interchanges with Jeeps), trim items and body panels are all but extinct."  okay I identify with this my search for a couple of inches of rubber to complete the look of a bumper. 

IowaEagle you must be incredibly proud.  Great last words of the article.  Congratulations!

Thanks.  He kind of messed up that story.  I know why we were invited to the car show.  They wanted to include AMC owners (they also invite other brands too).  I was the only Eagle there.  There were a couple of AMX's, a Javelin and a Gremlin.  One of the AMX's is now on display some where (where is it Bill?).  There was a hail storm rolling in the from the West and of course everyone panicked.  And the show did end early just before the storm hit.  I have never seen so many nice cars leave so fast to get under cover.  Of course, I drove home in it -- why not?

Thanks for posting it.  Nicely done.  I enjoyed the artice and I posted it at work with all my other Eaglenest printouts.  I love that the Eagle is still being talked about this long after production was halted.

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.

I have been the only AMC Eagle in the shows I have entered and they put me in "Best of the 80s" because they have no idea and they have not included the category.  But we (YOU) are making in-roads I think at by having the Forum, having the articles, and books.  I think it will be expected and then a category for the AMC to be at car shows and cruise.

Some shows have an AMC category, not many, unfortunately.  Maybe we will start seeing more as AMC owners become more vocal.  The show at the Tama/Toledo meet has no classes which does hurt AMC as the judges seldom consider any orphan car.  Yes Eagles are hard to place into a specific class -- show organizers do not know, so they take our word for it.
