I always wanted to make a 2 dr AMC Eagle wagon.

Do it...make a port hole wagon. I've always loved that old 70s look! You'd have to put some cheesy graphics on the side like that Pinto! :)

I say go for it. Though Those 2 big pieces of real estate need something. Maybe a mural or something really make it POP. I like it honestly.

Well, actually I am sorta glad cause I had a sudden thought about those dang "My lil pony" and the goofy pics on their rumps that are connected to their name imagined something like that on tootie or bucket...

I did see an idea a while back on a computer case that could be cool if there was a way to do it.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qD0eOEDgaqo this on the outside and a pop out panel on the inside so you can keep the air out during the winter/cold months.

Be kinda cool in my opinion but a bit of work either way, I am sure there could be a way to get the louvers to over lap when closed.

and yeah, a 4wd Wagon could handle a fair bit of shaggin'. "hey baby, wanna test the shocks in the mountains with me?"                                                                                                                                          :laughing4:

I was thinking something much more epic and classic van mural. Lots of fantasy landscapes...

Replace the wizard with some sort of Epic Eagle Battle! :)

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.

On the '87 Eagle Wagon, I'm gonna have the rear quarter windows, hatch and probably rear doors done in a darker bronze tint (getting harder and harder to find) and perhaps the fronts in a very light tint to block UV rays and heat.  I'll post pics. :amc:

The blind spots not so bad with just the rear window gone, I would know, thanks to bambi, Im halfway there.

Ive got a piece of aluminum glued in place of my left rear, and I hardly notice.

By the way, Can I have your left rear window when done?  ;D
