 I owned an '81 Eagle Avant for a year back in 1986, then I went to college
and sold it because I didn't want to be making car payments. I have regretted
it ever since. It was the full time AWD model [not part time like later
models] and man could it go through the snow. I even went down into a ditch
and pulled a car out with it. That's why my latest car is an Audi,
unfortunately I couldn't afford a decent quattro. Next Audi will definitely be
a quattro though. I still see some of them around the Twin Cities and am
surprised at the good shape most of them are in, maybe they are really Audis
rebadged by AMC. :-)
