My Entry: The 1981 AMC "Desert" Eagle


This is the finest in American Engineering (that you can buy for $500). This bad boy came out of Tuscon, Arizona nestled amongst a sea of Trailer Homes within a Mogadishu array of trailer parks. 

Here is a walkaround showing off all the custom touches.

This is my American junk, a 1983 Jeep J-10. Complete with it's fair share of rust, leaking rear main seal and incredibly smooth ride (extreme sarcasm, it's a full size jeep they ride like a conestoga wagon) it truly is one of the most reliable vehicles on the planet 😂. Mine is one of I believe 10 or 12 in the world that has yet to be LS swapped (Very Rare option!) This one is still touting the old AMC 360, aside from the oil leak that just started 2 weeks ago it really is a great running and driving truck. The bottom picture is a comparison from the first day I brought it home to how it sits now. Here is a short little video of it running

Here is my 1982 Jeep Wagoneer "Farm Find". It was born in Rust Belt Capital of Toledo, OH where it was purchased by a Pittsburgh Oil Baron who decked it out in every option imaginable....except he special ordered it with the 4.2l Inline Six! It then made its way back to Armada, MI where and my son @dlangshootpies pulled it out from behind a barn next to a field last year. We spent that weekend getting it running after a 10 year nap and then I have been cosmetically restoring it ever since.  Being a 6 cylinder tank it has a highly questionable zero to 60 time but gets a highly respectable for a FSJ 18+mpg.

That powertrain/trim combo is amazing.   Very cool barn find!

I was originally suspicious of whether this was truly a $500 car or not when I first saw it but after seeing these photos I'm not any longer! That has to be one of the most beat-up Lemons cars I've ever seen! Congratulations on your fiberglass skills as well!
