2014 Eagle Motel trip
« on: January 16, 2014, 02:23:17 PM »
Hi All!
This is our Eagle Motel year! I hope we can get several Eagle Den members to join us. As always the date will be the first or second weekend in October. In 2012 we has 35 Eagles and 60 people make the trip. I hope this year we can beat that. I am working on 3 more cars that I hope to have ready in time, a wagon, a coupe, and a sedan. I they are all ready and I have the drivers I will take 23 cars from my collection. Feel free to email me with any questions you have and if you want to sign up. This will be the largest group of Eagles parked together since they  were built.
I hope you can make it!

I have reserved the motel for October 11th and 12th. We will leave Rambler Ranch on Saturday morning about 10AM. Lets make this the largest gathering of Eagle's ever! We had 35 cars 2 years ago, I would love to see close to 50 this year. Feel free to email me at [email protected] if you have any questions.
Terry

Howdy from Texas,

Terry is one of my best friends and I can guarantee that he makes sure this trip is AWESOME!  If your an AMC Eagle fan (which most everyone on here must be) or just a person looking for a fantastic and fun filled trip in beautiful Colorado, this is the one.  Imagine over 30 AMC Eagles driving in a line from Elizabeth, Colorado to Maintou Springs, Colorado (an over 50 mile one way trip) through idyllic mountain scenery!  Start making your plans now for this wonderful trip and long live AMC  :amc:

I will see everyone there!

Gig'em,
Dan

I am in and will be driving my Eagle all the way from Akron, Ohio! I have already requested the first two weeks of October off of work. I can't wait!
My list of my cars/toys (or toys at my disposal!)

1985 AMC Eagle Sportwagon
2017 Mercedes-Benz C300 4Matic
1993 Mercedes-Benz 500SL
2016 Triumph Bonneville
 1962 Cruisers Inc Mahogany 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....

Wish I could guarantee it to be 2 more from Kansas but not sure about finances or kids.

Looked like fun since I first saw it..

If I am satisfied with my restification of the SX/4, I will strongly consider that long of a trip.

looks like we will have people from at least 6 states joining us! Lets make this the biggest Eagle sighting ever! I would love to see 45 Eagle's or more. I will check with the motel to see if the second weekend words for them, I will post the date real soon.

I look forward to seeing you all at Rambler Ranch in October!

Any of you planning to come in from out of state, make sure you arrive at least a day early to make sure you have lots of time to see the Rambler Ranch.  The couple of hours allocated on Saturday morning aren't enough to take it all in.
