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 trends come and go like fashion, and the latest two-wheeled style du jour is the adventure bike. Chunky and rugged, these (sometimes) dirt-ready rides often take cues from the massive, Armageddon-ready rigs you'd find on the Dakar Rally. In their most neutered form, they can start as street bikes and adapt for adventure duty by adding taller suspension setups, removable saddlebags, bigger fuel tanks, and better wind protection.

Lying smack in the middle of that dirt/road matrix (and leaning toward the tarmac side) is the 2014 Suzuki V-Strom 1000 ABS. A venerable fixture in the adventure scene, it developed a primarily urban following after the model bowed in 2004, though it's also proved itself worthy of tackling trails and light offroad scenarios. For automotive folks not steeped in the vagaries of the motorcycle world, the V-Strom is the two-wheeled equivalent of the late, great Mitsubishi Montero: capable, no-nonsense, and a bit of an unsung hero in the face of more glamorous offroaders like the Land Rover LR4 and the Mercedes-Benz Geländewagen.
The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) has revealed its annual list of Top Safety Picks, an award that highlights automobiles it says offer "superior crash protection." A new and still more significant award, the Top Safety Pick+ honor, is given to those vehicles that earn good ratings for occupant protection in four out of five areas of measure. And while some 117 vehicles were given the TSP seal of approval for 2013, just 13 passed muster for TSP+.

To be fair, IIHS only evaluated 29 vehicles with its new testing procedures for TSP+ (we'd expect that the number of qualified cars will rise substantially for 2014). Luxury and Near Luxury midsize cars were the first groups evaluated, followed by midsizers in the Moderately Priced Cars category - unsurprisingly, it's only midsize cars that you'll find among the class this year.
Only two luxury sedans made the list of 13 for 2013: the Acura TL and Volvo S60. The other 11 cars on the list included entries from domestic, Japanese and German car makers: Dodge Avenger, Chrysler 200, Ford Fusion, Honda Accord (sedan and coupe), Kia Optima (but not its close kin, the Hyundai Sonata, strangely), Nissan Altima, Subaru Legacy and Outback, Suzuki Kizashi and the Volkswagen Passat all made the grade.
Plenty of us here at Autoblog have designs for epic drives. Whether it's bouncing around the country in an old International or heading from Alaska to Chile on a bike, we like to think we have big aspirations. Or at least we did until we heard about these four gentlemen. You see, Leslie George Carvall, Alan Butler, Glyn Maher and Charles Scott are all in their 70's, and they plan to pile into a pair of Suzuki Jimny SUVs and drive around the world. Sort of makes a hike across country seem like a trip down the block to the local corner store. They're calling it "The Ultimate Challenge," and they plan to undertake the journey for two reasons.
First, they want to prove that age shouldn't stand in the way of people doing what they want to do. Second, the group hopes to raise funds for the 'Heaven Can Wait I'm Busy' group, which aims to direct money toward worthy charities both in the UK and around the world. Save the Children and Oakhaven Hospice are the two currently designated charities.
The trip gets started in just three days, and you can head over to the effort's site to track their progress. The route should cover some 16,500 road miles and 10,375 sea miles. You can also catch up with the project on Facebook.
