1983 AMC Eagle 4 Wheel Drive back end close up. Fine Art photography prints and canvas art by James Insogna (C) 2011 .In August 1979, for the 1980 model year, AMC introduced four-wheel drive versions of the Spirit and Concord, calling the collective line the AMC Eagle. Eagles rapidly became one of the company’s best-known products and is considered one of the first “crossover SUVs”. Eagles used the 2-wheel drive body shells mounted on an all-new platform developed by American Motors in the late 1970s. Featuring an innovative full-time four-wheel drive system, it sold best in snow-prone areas. Sales started strongly but declined over time. While the two-wheel drive Spirit and Concord were both discontinued after 1983 as the company concentrated on its new Renault Alliance, the Eagle survived for five years longer, albeit only in station wagon form, into the 1988 model year. This meant the four-wheel drive Eagle was the lone representative of the AMC brand from 1984â1988. All the company’s remaining output was branded Renault or Jeep. The last AMC Eagle was built on December 14, 1987. Source: Wikipedia
This storm started later in the evening. Just how I like them. It was dinner time, for us we eat late, it was about 8:30. I had just got done cooking. Everypne was having something different. We were just about to sit down and it started. So as I have done many times… I looked at my wife and son and said ” I got to go” Something they are used too hearing when the first sound of thunder hits. So I went to north east Boulder County just north of Longmont to one of my favorite lakes. It was cloud to cloud lightning. Thunder heads were lighting up but the bolts would never appear. If they had… it would have been one of my best nights. It lasted for a long time. Very beautiful and hard to capture the true beauty on film.
