    Goodwood today. I had one of these in black and it was brilliant. Looks better in yellow, though.

    Bit of a controversial choice for this thread, but I love brown. This is one of my favourite pics from when we blagged a Jag and fannied around the Alps a few years ago. I love that brown!

    Alpina. What a fantastic old thing. It had that smell, too.

    BL Avocado. Was it only available on Rovers?
    One of my schoolteachers had a brand new W-reg 1980 Metro 1.0 in a similar colour but I don't think it was Avocado.  Teacher was a huge fat bloke and I think his squashy body moulded itself to the shape of the inside of a Metro when he drove it.  Ace interesting teacher though, could take a laugh.

    Meadow green.

    I like this combination with the brown seats.  There was a slightly lighter Highland green around that time too.

    Have seen a few (very few) mid 73 - mid 76 Granadas in purple velvet, but never a Ghia or a Ghia coupe.

    No idea who the bloke in the framed pic is or why his pic is there. Maybe some sort of back-story?
    Anyway, you could have your Ghiakoop in purple.  Didn't know that before.

    Unusual colour for a Shelby Mustang. Think it's from either 70 or 71.

     
    Further inspection shows that this customer didn't specify a vinyl roof.

    New late-1967 metallic colours from higher up in the Ford range, optional on last of the line 105Es.

    Rare, but some still around in these colours.

    Capri 3000E in hi-viz 71 -73 Lemans green.



    Still would.  Not for 30 billion pounds though. And not for every day.
    Detailed as 'Lime' on VIN plates.

    Rare colour, I remember it on Escort 1300 Sports around K or L reg. 
    Peter Sutcliffe, the Yorkshire ripper, had a 2000GT V4 'special' Mk1 Capri in this bright colour. Limited edition pre-facelift 71 -72 model with slatted rear window thing from the factory, also available Vista orange or Black (with 1600GT crossflow) at various times.  Not very discreet or anonymous. Stuff on the internet if you're interested, details of his Corsairs and Rovers and loads of cars. Turns out his Capri lasted for several years afterwards owned by someone else and was last registered as being black.
    Maybe one day hi viz green, yellow, or orange could be the only compulsory options.  For safety.
