    Holy shit, that's beautiful.

    Where did we go wrong as a society that we left behind such a refined way of life?

    Every day we stray further from AMC's light.

    That color is outstanding.

    But I still can’t shake Art’s image of that AMC he seared in my mind today.

    I gotta go hide my wallet.

    Nice find Bmills, I love AMC Eagles. Still kicking myself over this one: https://bringatrailer.com/listing/1981-amc-eagle-2/ - didn't see it until after the auction was over. Would have been tough explaining to my wife though - somehow she doesn't see the appeal.

    And here I thought it wasn't possible to want it any more after Art's bit of copy.

    But it has a hitch condom! $6,200 would be easy to explain away once you point that out.

    Well. Yeah. Technically I guess.

    I think it’s more shoot yourself for buying that brake.

    True but drop a V8 with a blower on it in there and it is a sick hot rod

    This is for the dude who wants a newer Volvo wagon but hates the 4 cylinder engine.

    I had no idea that engine even existed. 345 hp and AWD is winning combo.

    Its a shame they ditched the turbo 6 for the 2.0 T6 and T8 engines.

    On paper, but walking up to it, not so much IMO. The new body style is way nicer, but the 4 banger
