Yes, you too can now have flexible expandable baggage bays!  Been thinking about that belly car, but it's too tall?  Not to worry!  These bays will MAKE room!

A shameless plug for my business - visit www.magazineexchange.co.uk for back issue magazines - thousands of titles covering cars, motorbikes, aircraft, railways, boats, modelling etc. You'll find lots of interest, although not much covering American buses sadly.

That would not be a big deal to a dedicated Eagle guy.

Your right Len that is a easy fix you can remove all 3 baggage compartments and drive that baby down the road no reason to even block the bus up to repair it.You MCI guys don't try that at home. 



good luck

No,no John not trying to make you feel bad the way yours is designed you could probably do it also ,but the guys with 5,6,7,8,9's and a few other models if that happen to their baggage compartment the roof would match it.


good luck

I know, Clifford. Now I am feeling better. Maybe someday we can afford a nice Eagle like yours.

 Roll Eyes Roll Eyes

 Grin Grin Grin

Clifford, and Van,

The trade off is, that you guys have better buses. Van, I can't wait to see yours, after you get together with Clifford's painter, and the paint job you all will come up with.

Clifford, again, you have one of the nicest looking Eagles that I have seen.

God bless,

John
