corn is up, beans are up in that particular field, we are getting a ton of rain right now though. i took that picture after harvest last year

@ shagg, its got rust in the rocker pannels, and some surface rust on the doors, and a lot of hail dents, after it went through a hail storm in the black hills before i owned it. right now the car is in savable condition, after seeing what others do to restore one now days.

@doug i hope you dont mean water hemp, not much water last year, so the crops and water hemp didnt grow. the valvet leaf and cokle bur kept growing though. :evil: i think i am going to start planting valvet leaf in cups, and leaving them around town.

Water hemp, I hear, does not bring good money. A lot of hemp was grown in Iowa (well probably still is) during WWII. I am surprised you have hail damage on your car. Must have been a bad storm as later AMC products seem to shrug off hail with the type of steel they used.

I have a feeling this car was wrecked at one point, paint does not match on the hood or passenger front fender, to the rest of the body. and the clear coat is peeling off the fender and part of the door. id say it was just a cheap repair job, and they took parts off of another car that might have been in a junkyard, and used poor quality paint. I am thinking my car could have been hit by this storm:

I'd love to take photo's of mine in a field but usually it's just me and I got to keep moving to is doesn't get stuck in the clay. :mrgreen:

Actually haven't got mine out to that point yet But I plan on taking it hunting and fishing when it's set.

If they weren't finally catching up on seeding (& the dash wasn't apart), I'd take the 88 out. Would only go as far in as a field access, since it's still too frigging wet out there. Beginning to think rice & cranberries should be the new crop of choice. :smh:

Corn and Soybean is very common around here. Winter wheat. Sorry your Eagle got hit with hail like that. I have parts.... I'm not using the roof or the hood of of one of these vehicles..

i didnt own it when it got hit, and its only a few dents. it does not bother me much, and it could be fixed when and if it gets a repaint.
