This Just Happened

Saturday night, cheating death by torrential rain in southern Utah, and death by holy-shnike-this-road-is-narrow in northern Arizona, a 14-hour epic towing journey from Tooele to Mesa came to an end. The 1985 AMC Eagle wagon has found a new home, or at least a rehab center, where hopefully it will one day return to full functionality and awesomeness.

What we know so far:
  • transmission has been cooked
  • hasn't started in... a while
  • needs a new heater core, CV axle, catalytic converter
  • leaks like a sieve
On the bright side:
  • electronics, like the radio, appear to be working
  • actually has current registration through October

 After being shoved into the garage by some helpful friends, the patient is resting comfortably.

For anyone out there who might like to stay apprised of the goings-on of this project, look no further. Stay tuned (you know you want to). Much more to come. Also there will be plenty of "eagle" puns. Ye be warned.
