I keep telling myself that light green 1984 300d of mine will grow on me yet. It just is not working so far. If I were color blind it might have helped.

That's pretty but I'm looking more for a car the same color as the building in the background. Unfortunately, I think that's a porta potty.

I like that blue color. I'll pass on the green though. I like the light green a little.

For the right car I could grow to like it!

First off, Teal doesn't count as green!!!

This is a very good choice of green although I don't know the name. For sale in the DFW area if anybody wants it.....

my latest 126 83SD is DARK green with palomino tex... less than 172K on the clock instant starts, and NO BLOWBY.... everything works but the tranny... and Im working on that.
the clear is JUST starting to peel, should be an easy wet sand and respray... I hope.
I can't wait to get her on the road and get out of my TEAL 82SD... wish me luck!
