Engine bay is mostly black now.  There is still some silver in places as well on the inside of the doors, etc.  That will change eventually.

The first picture was at the Brass Armadillo Antique Mall in Des Moines (approx 200 cars) and the second at Duffy's Collectible Cars in Cedar Rapids (approx 150 cars).  Duffy's gave us AMC'ers probably the best spot of anybody.

The "A" list!

Nah!  We got there fairly early and they really thought it was neat that we all came together.  But we do that so folks can see Kenosha Iron in all in the same spot.  Kind of backfired on us at the Huge Vinton Show and Cruise (400+ cars).  Nine of us arrived at the same time and were guided to one of the lots and since we were the first ones to be put in that lot we ended up in the back row -- but we figured thats just how it was for AMC's in the used car lots in the old days.  Really, it was not a bad spot because by time folks got to us they just lingered and drooled.   If I remember right there was a J10, two Eagles, an AMX, 4 Javelins, and a Gremlin.

To paraphrase a great songwriter....Sometimes you get the golg mine sometimes you get the shaft!

As long as you get the better of them in the end and have fun!

When I had the 73 Chevelle I got stuck in the rear at many shows, even though I had the only 11sec car with show quality paint and interior. Used to pull the pipes and crank it over during the awards presentation to get em back(I know...but I was MUCH younger and not quite as smart)

Not a single color -- if that what you were thinking.  Yeah, I wondered why no one caught on to the hint by now.  What do you think if you think you know?

Well if it's similar to an"old" AMC muscle color scheme I think it's great....In fact HOT!
If not I'm WAAAAAY off!

You are on the right track.  You ought to see the interior of a certain AMC muscle car.  The inside follows the outside.  I will try to remember to get pix this year -- the owner is battling cancer so he only made it to one show that I was at.  Apparently he is doing much better.  That is a hard car to drive -- no PS, really stiff clutch, and for some reason does not idle well or like to go slow.

Last I heard he was improving.  He is not much older than me which really stinks.  He was last offered 40K for the car.  He turned it down.

Nice Eagle Iowa! Wish mine looked like that! :( Though i really like the red/white/blue color scheme on that one car. Hmmm... I wonder what it would look like on an eagle.

I keep pondering that one too.  I wish I was good with paint/photo shop programs then I might have an idea.
