A new "winter" car

I always thought these were cool as wagons - I did not know until recently they came in a sporty two door hatchback. Take an AMC Spirit, and throw Jeep Cherokee running gear underneath it, and you have the AMC Eagle SX/4. This one needs work - but the body is in great shape for a 26 year old car - especially one with great ground clearance, a 258 cubic inch inline six, and four wheel drive. I am willing to bet I can build this up to be able to challenge another Spokane winter like the last two. I'm going to be the guy who drives PAST all the big Suburbans and Expeditions stuck in the snow. (I'm evil that way). I traded my Tempo and the ATC I recently got (scroll down the page a bit) for this. I don't drive the Tempo much anymore, because I traded my old dually GMC truck for a Mazda Protege. I know.... but I love trading cars and getting unusual ones. This one qualifies as pretty darn unusual!
