It looks real sharp on a wagon!! Iv seen one in that color combination before. If I recall correctly it was a Sport cuz it had the blacked out trim. Black and silver sure look good together and a red pinstripe really makes those colors pop!! The only thing is though the interior would almost have to  be black or grey to look right.

...You thinking of doin a a color change on your Eagle Don?

Oh yeah ;D...I was also going to ask you if you know of any good paints that work well on plastic trim....I repainted an 82 I had and within a year the paint was flaking off the plastic trim.

thanx,

The red accent stripe was found on all Sport models except those painted red.  They left their accents silver.

I was there yesterday Don.  But not for paint.  Work related.  Will have to look next time I am there.  Was it in the auto section or the paint section?

You could also get a Black SX/4 with a white accent stripe.  My friend's red SX/4 also has his that are white.
