hahahahaha no experience but I was JUST talking about this with Cronk. I've always wanted to get an Eagle. there is one around town that I'm always staring at. I'm not a big fan of the AWD system they use and if you do a google search you can come up with alot of info. I thought about getting one and changing the tcase.
I love em too, especially the SX/4. There was just one for sale in Reno too for cheap, and I was drooling over it. The wife saw me looking at it, and said, "no, no, no" while waving her finger at me. :?
I would love to know more about them, like are they dependable when fixed up right, are there crate motors that can easily be swapped in, etc, etc.
Tha black SX/4s are so wicked looking when done right.
Honestly the motors aren't bad, most of them had the straight 6, and they even had a turbo diesel option! I think the big issues were the tcase and front end but that's not bad. They basically had Cherokee running gear with Dana 30's and Dana 35's.
Just the idea of a slightly lifted 4x4 sports car is appealing to me. I mean, it would be pointless for me to buy one, because the VX bascially fills that niche for me, I just have always liked them, ever since I was a kid...
I briefly had an AMC Concorde, before I could drive. My 8th grade math teacher said I could have it if I could get it to run. And I did.
It was parked at a friends house, because I was 13 and my parents didn't want "junk cars" around the place. My friends just rallied it through the orchards and trashed it. Not that it was all that nice to begin with, but I kind of wanted it for my first car. Oh well, I got a Trooper when the time came.
I would like an Eagle sedan, but now I've gone the Subaru GL route...
hmm... sounds like mixed reviews. the one I'm interested in is a wagon, and it would be doing commuter/family duty with occasional trips up the mountain, but honestly, that would be a rare occasion. might have to have a hitch, though, so I could put a trailer behind it to haul my dirtbike up to the hills.
I agree, the 72/73 Javelin is one of my all time favorite American muscle cars.
And I agree on the Eagle, when you are talking about the wagons. That's why I like the SX/4. The wagons are kinda goofy lookin. The SX/4 just has better proportions and that rear spoiler looks cool as hell on it.
See I thought the exact opposite, I thought the wagon's looked better because well, it looked like it's supposed to be a wagon where the 2dr is "supposed" to be more car like but it's stance makes it look weird to me, I think it should be hugging the tires, look more sporty or more like a muscle car, like this spirit:
As for AMC, I'd take an AMX Javelin any day, I thought they were sweet.
The SX-4 is based on the Spirit And that's why it looks funny to me, I love the 4x4 factor but this tiny car lifted just looks funny to me, I thought the wagon looked more proportional when sitting higher. The VX is short but it's long enough and large enough to look good still.
I don't know man, there are only a handful of cars I like now. That's why I usually buy older cars and fix them up, and also because I hate car payments and I see no point in dropping 30K+ on a car that I am then going to modify.
