Three Heritage Brown TA's at the BanOne show in Georgia. You don't see that many, so three at this show was pretty cool.  One was a 403 car, mine and the unrestored one are W72 cars :)

Mine on the right, and I can't remember the other gentleman's name.  That's the original paint on his!!!

Pretty much untouched W72 car in the foreground, car wasn't in show but should have been.

rainman, thanks for the comments on that pic, one of my favs too, but this pic is the best i have of it, i have a basic camera and i'm a novice at taking pics, i just think the back drops are important, and this one is a local cemetery that is one of the largest in the world.

limey, is that a pic from a local junkyard or what, the shot is sick, i would like to have one like that?


where are the rest of the brownies?

I wish i had a picture of my mothers cousins T/A from when i was a child... he had a 77SE that he custom painted all 3 of the brown hues... starting from the front was the lightest shade then it blended to the medium shade at the fender/door seam then  to the darkest  just behind the door. Replaced the decals and pinstripe of the SE and it was eye candy.  I know most think it would look tacky but you have to think back in the day when customization was the craze. it was truely a one of a kind. now this was not your typical division line it was actually a transition of hue change and then several coats of clear.
   The last time I seen them I had my T/A at my mothers house and he was in awe over the one I have and he stated... "If I only had mine back"....

I have to be honest, I used to not like brown birds at all and now it is one of my favorite colors.  Beautiful cars!

my bird is very angry..

my other brown bird has been washed so much and sat out in the sun to many times that it has been faded to a solar gold color.
