      Watch this AMC Eagle do some rock climbing!

      I never had an opportunity to drive one,  closest I came was the 2-wheel-drive version called the Concord I had to rent for when sent to a school in Oklahoma City back in the ’80s.

      Starting about 1:10 in the video one thing kept coming to mind from every E-Ticket ride I have ever been on.

      Keep hands and arms INSIDE car at all times.

      I think that, at the top of the climb, the drivers and their cars got to a level area where a nice road went by.

      I was hoping to see them climbing down the same way they went up and am really sorry they did not oblige: it should have been quite a bit more exciting than going up, I’m pretty sure of it.

        Maybe in an H2, H3 or a Jeep Wrangler you would see a real climb, one that may suit your fancy. But this isn’t the case. One way up and that’s it for this AMC Eagle. 😉

      Maybe someone could show this video to Tom Cruise. It might give him some ideas for something to do in the next “Mission Impossible” movie, such as to race both uphill and downhill in hot pursuit of, or from some evil character, the slopes of the Matterhorn, or K2, or some other convenient hill like that.

      When I was a kid, an uncle of mine bought an already old AMC’s Nash. Mechanically, it wasn’t a great, or even a good car, but we all loved it dearly all the same and, somehow, my uncle managed to take us, a cousin and me and his father, our grand father, in it a for long trips during summer vacations without serious mishaps, although the car was often in a mechanic’s garage in between such excursions.
