Whos teal wagon.
« on: March 05, 2011, 11:48:39 PM »
In this picture taken by Nashkid in the return to eagle motel post...there is a teal wagon about 4 cars in or so...I gotta say I love that color scheme and never seen it before. I figure its likely a nest members and I was just wondering if thats original or custom....

I have not seen that Teal Eagle before that I can remember.

I no longer have an AMC Eagle, but I am still a fan.

After our fiasco with the Toyota Corolla I got for my wife I believe I am done with Japanese vehicles.

Dude you are preaching to a choir member that is close to becoming an AMC Minister if you know what I mean.

Looks like the one that Alan owns, but not his.   Its a factory color, I am guessing Slate Blue Metallic.  These pictures are from the 2008 Toledo meet.

Most of those are Terry's(Nashkid) Eagles. If I remember correctly, besides mine there were only 4 other Eagles owned by others. Eaglebeek, Terry's mechanic, his mechanic's daughter, and a guy from the local AMC club.

Hmmmm, So that probably was a factory color eh....I Like!!....Ginger may end up that color someday...Thanks for lookin that up for me Bill....I promised myself that I would not do anything non-AMC to Ginger....To be honest I was not real fond of alot of AMC's colors in the 80's, I really like that one though...And i cant say Ive ever seen one wearing that shade before..or maybe i have and it was so faded i didnt notice ;D

Seems like they kinda went to the earth tones later on....drifting away from the brighter colors of the seventies.

a tip for anyone looking to repaint their eagle to a factory color, alot of these colors are very hard to get the mix codes for.  One of these days when i am slow at work i am going to pull out the thousand or so paint chip cards we have so that i can get the proper "new colors" (it is amazing how auto manufacturers revert to old colors and call them something new)

I was there...but the teal wagon is not mine. Mine is brown and was at the far end in this photo.

In addition to the people named by eaglefreek Mick and StrikeEagle also had their Eagles at this meet.
