since we've had a mock EOTM going, and it had 21 votes at the time. do we want to continue this, and are there any ideas on how to run it. maybe we could put the winners car on the main page with the details about it. and would someone else be interested in running the EOTM

I say keep it, but maybe call it "AMC of the Month", since it's not strictly about Eagles here? Or if we're having suggestions/votes on a theme/category for a month, add in things like Concords/Spirits, Other AMC cars, AMC Jeeps. My only thought/request that it be someone you know (online or real life), not simply pics you've dredged up off the internet.

Monthly EVO. Somewhat themed maybe but get a vehicle from the projects page and get a variety of pictures and story and post it that way. So we have some nice pictures to look at and eye candy for visitors?

I like what the nest did for EOTM. 5 months were designated for the main body styles. Wagon, 4 Door, 2 Door, SX/4, Kammback. The others were setup as themed months. High mileage, snow, project, modified, original, etc. We can get more creative with our themed months if we want. We could have a month that was dedicated to non-eagle AMC cars, but it was my understanding that even though we are called AMC Evolution this is still primarily an Eagle forum. Though I do appreciate many AMCs!

So true about those AMC's. Love them. I found my heart skipping a beat when Penny's PO said he had a CJ-8 for sale.

^ BINGO! Then it's just a matter of themes! :cheers: Original/survivor, off road, modified, beat up/well-used, high/low miles/kilometres (might need two shots, one of the odometer & of the car), etc, etc. Maybe have a suggestion thread for themes, & someone can keep the original post updated with a list of suggested themes (to cut down on duplicated ideas)?

I agree, after all we are the misfits.
