I would like to bring back the ROTM here, if possible. Earlier on Rafe had some good themes that were compiled together that I think could be some fun to use. I think these themes could set us apart from then den as well, as put some creativity into the pictures. what would everyone like to see for themes included?

Give me your ideas. Let's get freaky, wacky, creative. Give me anything and everything and I'll keep adding them to the list. Ultimately I would like to have 4-6 Themes that are good to be used every year and then I'll pick from the rest which ones get to be the themes for the year. I'll start off with a list of some I've heard people mention already.

1. Original
2. Modified
3. Beater
4. High Mileage
5. Off-roading
6. Work-in-progress
7. Trailer Queen (Best in Class...hey, we gotta have one month dedicated to the dedicated...or those that found a garaged or trailered queen)
8. Non-Eagles (AMC/Ramblers/Jeeps)
9. Season Eagles (Summer, Fall, Winter, Spring)
10. Urban Eagle
11. Holiday Themed (4th of July, Halloween, Christmas)
12. Anything Goes (Peoples Choice...can include non-Eagles)
13. Best/Worst Interior
14. Daily Driver (Most be a car mainly driven as a daily driver)
15. Lawn Ornament (Parts cars)
16. The Underdog! (Just thought of this one...might come in handy later on down the road, but after a couple years this category would be for all Eagles that have never won RotM)
17. Biggest Headache (This one will rely heavily on a good write-up on why your ride has caused you such a headache since ownership)
18. Rust Bucket
19. Flock/Family Photo (Meet Photo, Your personal Eagle collection, Your personal AMC collection)
20. Dirty Bird (Dirtiest Eagle)
21. The Performer (Modified/Swapped Engine/Suspension. And like all performers...we wanna see it in action. Video Proof)
22. Smokin' (Tires, exhaust, engine, you smoking in the drivers seat, fighting a forest fire!)
23. Dishonorably Discharging (Leaking anything and everything. Better be able to see those stains on the driveway!)

Ok, well I took your suggestions and tried to come up with some of my own. Let me know if you don't like some of them or have more to add. I'll add them to the list.

I just want to try to keep it going temporarily until someone else is interested in taking over, as I will most likely forget about it, and be late with everything. :oops:

I think that if there is a ride of the month make it open to all AMCs ..... alot of us own an eagle or 2 but this isn't strictly an eagle forum
