YAK Car Pic of the Day

Ironically (possibly), this 1981-84 AMC Eagle was parked just off the lot of the Made in America Store in East Aurora last week. Starting in 1984 AMC moved production from its Kenosha, Wisconsin plant to a plant in Brampton, Ontario Canada. The Eagle, you may remember, was American Motors’ last gasp before driving off into history, built for model years 1980-88 with variants based on the Concord and the Gremlin/Spirit. These cars were basically the AMC sedans and wagons plopped down onto Jeep running gear. Kind of the same concept as many of today’s crossovers. Perhaps AMC was just ahead of its time?
