Is it just me or is the new Honda Crosstour a retread of the AMC Eagle of our youth?

One of the teachers at my elementary school had an AMC Eagle, that strange crossbreed of station wagon and Jeep Wagoneer. It was a strange beast, the car, not the teacher, that I thought had passed its time in America. I was wrong.  I’ve been seeing several Honda Crosstours around and they looked strangely familiar. Now I know why.

First a TV spot for the AMC Eagle:

  1. I love the Eagle. Awesome car. I think they were based on the CJ series chassis not the wagonier. You could even get them with a viscous limited slip center differential that made them full time AWD!

    The only comparison between the Eagle and the Crosstour is that the eagle could easily drive over the crosstour, thus making it the superior automobile.
