An interesting article.....
« on: March 19, 2012, 05:27:59 PM »
While perusing some old Car & Driver mags I have, I came across an article written by none other than Roy Lunn.  It's from the June, 1984 issue & details AMC's efforts in putting togther a team to run the Paris-Dakar rally.  It's a great story, running 9 pages and goes in-depth into the "unoffical" team that ran 2 XJ Cherokees....I don't have any way to scan it online (sorry), but maybe someone here has this issue & the means to post it??  It isn't an Eagle story, but being that the creator of the Eagle wrote it, I thought it would be fitting here.....

1995 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo 5.2
2008 Hyundai Santa Fe GLS
2005 Ford Crown Victoria Police Interceptor

It would be an interesting read.  The XJ and Eagle are close relations.
