I'll agree with the three reds, my number 2 color scheme of all time!

That '80s scheme is an all-time classic... #2 goes to the current scheme, also a future classic.

I just get really really pissed off because it's so hard to find models in the 80's scheme. At least I got a 732 in old colors. Wish there was more.

For me, The 90s bare metal with red cheat and blue tail, thanks.

That would be my first choice also. Their original livery (which was a modified version of AL's 1975 livery) would be a close second.

I like the post-Piedmont merger color scheme, but I really like the new paint scheme that came out in '97
