1981 AMC Eagle SX4, 4.2L inline 6 cylinder motor with auto transmission and all wheel drive. Runs and shifts good. Carb has been rebuilt recently, along with replacing most vacuum lines. Just replaced upper ball joints and control arm bushings, lower control arm bushings, and sway bar links. Heat works great, A/C was retrofitted for R-134 and worked great last summer. Cruise control works. Exterior is in good shape, was repainted AMC Big Bad Orange about 5 years ago. Also had Ziebart undercoating from the factory, so it doesn't have any of the common rust problems underneath. Interior is in good shape, there is one crack on the dash panel. Has a Grant steering wheel. Hood release handle is not broken like a lot of Eagles (common problem) and still functions properly. It does have a few issues: needs a new headliner, driver's window switch needs to be pressed hard to work, needs rear hatch struts, the plastic rocker panel is cracked near rear wheel (see pic), and it could use new front shocks. Odometer reads just shy of 107K miles, but quit working about 6 months ago on me. Has been garaged all winter, just pulled it out about 2 months ago to change the oil and drive it around a bit. I don't drive the car daily, so it has had very few miles put on it since the odometer quit working. Overall, this is a very nice Eagle with no rust, and mechanically sound. I also have it for sale locally, so I reserve the right to end the auction at any time if it sells locally first. Buyer to make shipping arrangements. $500 non-refundable deposit due at end of auction. Full price to be paid, along with shipping/pickup arrangements to be made within 7 days of auction end. Any other questions, feel free to ask. Thanks.

Motorcycle land-speed record holder Bill Warner died yesterday after crashing during an attempt at setting another record. The 44-year-old was clocked at 285 miles per hour on the runway of a former air base in northern Maine, before he lost control of his modified Suzuki Hayabusa motorcycle and veered off the runway.

It is not known what speed he was traveling when things started to go wrong and unclear what caused the crash, which happened shortly before 10:00 AM. Warner's crew suspect there were mechanical difficulties on his last run, in addition to a slight breeze, according to the video news report. Warner was conscious and able to speak after the crash but died an hour and 15 minutes later at a hospital in Caribou. The event and runway were closed for the rest of the day as police investigated the incident.
Warner was participating in "The Maine Event" at Loring Air Force Base in an attempt to reach 300 mph in one mile. Warner's best land-speed record, set in 2011, was 311.945 mph in 1.5 miles on the same runway, according to the Loring Timing Association, a record that still stands today for open-cockpit motorcycles. After that run, Warner said the scariest part was stopping the bike before the end of the runway. Be sure to check out the video news report after the jump.
Yesterday's announcement that American Suzuki has filed for bankruptcy is all but a death blow for the Japanese automaker's 246 US dealers, but if there's any good news coming out of the situation, it could be the fact that the whole process will likely be quick and painless rather than drawn out. WardsAuto is reporting that with the current inventory and average sales numbers so far this year, there figures to be about three months left for Suzuki's new-car business in the US given current sales rates.
Wed, 11 Sep 2013 17:21:00 EST
In October, Suzuki sold 2,023 units - a five percent increase over last year - but with just 5,549 left in inventory, it shouldn't take too long to wind down operations. Sales for the brand peaked 2007 with more than 100,000 units sold, but this year, Suzuki is barely on pace to reach a quarter of that amount, with just 21,188 units sold so far in 2012. In addition to poor sales, WardsAuto also notes that Suzuki faced problems due to its reliance on customers with subprime credit.
Suzuki will continue to sell motorcycles, ATVs and marine engines in the US, while the brand's cars will still be on sale in other countries including Canada and Mexico.
It's with some sadness that we present to you the Suzuki iV-4 Concept - there's absolutely no way we'll ever see a production Suzuki based off this conceptual design in the States, despite the fact that the brand has quite a small-SUV heritage on our shores. Of course, we won't be seeing any new Suzuki passenger cars or trucks in the US at all...
For the rest of the world, Suzuki's push with this concept is personalization. According to the automaker, the name is broken down as such: "i" stands for "individuality," "V" for "vehicle," and "4" for "4 wheel-drive." A tad convoluted, perhaps, but we'll roll with it.
As far as its styling, the iV4 doesn't break any new ground for Suzuki, recalling its past and current production models with details that include a clamshell hood and a five-slot grille. Suzuki promises a production variant of this concept, and the "individuality" part will be accomplished through a selection of exterior components, colors and textures, though we're not clear what exactly that means or how it will differ from the accepted practice of ordering a unique car through a dealership.
