2013 AMCRC National Convention - Denver
« on: October 25, 2013, 11:55:42 PM »
The 2013 National Convention of the AMC Rambler Club was held in Denver this year.  People started arriving on Thursday August 16.  Friday included a tour of the Rambler Ranch, and Terry was a gracious host as always.  Saturday was the car show.  I'd guess there was about 150 cars in the show, including 8 Eagles, all from Colorado.  There weren't as many cars as when the AMO show was in town in 2007, but there was a greater variety, as the earlier show was dominated by AMX's and Javelins.  StrikeEagle entered his trail ready SX/4 into the show.

I'm posting pictures of the Eagles here.  If you want to see the rest of the cars follow this link:

Wow, that's gotta be some of the nicest Eagles I've ever seen! I recognize the woody I think. Isn't it a members car? Or a member recently sold it? I feel like it was someones dad's Eagle? Anyway, yeah, those are some great looking Eagles. They represented us well. I hope you found the owners and made sure they knew about the Den or the Evo. Would be great to have them around!

I think those are wheel covers.

Yeah I know those are wheel covers. I said wheels but meant to say wheel covers or hubcaps. Never the less sure would like to find a set of really nice ones. I did obtain a couple of them some time ago but there pretty used up so I'm still looking. But thanks for correcting me on my typo.

I think that owner said those were basically that same wheel covers that were on a Cadillac (?).

They are all gorgeous!! But that coupe....between the ideal color combo and the condition and the Marchals....it is the creme of the crop for me. It's funny....I think the Concords with that roof look hideous, but, especially with the right color combo, Eagle coupes look amazing.
My list of my cars/toys (or toys at my disposal!)

2007 Lincoln Town Car
1985 AMC Eagle Sportwagon
Trek 4500 Mountain Bike
Kawasaki ZXI 900 jetski
Polaris SLTx jetski
1962 Cruisers Inc Mahagany Outboard

I like to to tell people my Eagle is like a Ferrari. It's quirky, tempermental, border-line exotic, and something you don't see everyday.  See? Makes perfect sense....

The right, or wrong colors, did surely make the same model of car look great while others looked terrible.  I always disliked what I called sea foam green on any AMC.  A dealer told me they had to take delivery of a few of those on their low end models because the government used that color.

That is the nicest coupe I've ever seen, but I'm partial to the brown woody wagon! :)
