Let me drop the picture quality a bit, with some cars I've owned at some point. :)





This was even painted by me. :p It was running on chrome wheels when I had it, to complete the look, but I've lost all pictures of the car. :(

Nothing wrong with silver, it is just used a bit too often. It is almost the new white of the automotive world. Both of which are still better than beige.

Hell, if we're going to have purple, I demand green!







That is a large chunk of my current "if I win the lottery" garage. Maybe silver for the GT3 RS and a B5 instead of B3 but close otherwise.

I have had this weird fetish for BRG-ish colors for the last couple of months. I don't completely understand it myself but the thought of a dark green Range Rover like above with brown/dark orange interior is just pure car porn to me :dunno:

Green cars currently in my garage...

Green cars currently in my garage...

At the moment, I own 3 green cars and I'm providing storage for a 4th:
I think I've posted all of these cars before in various threads...


This is my 'baby'. It's a 1966 Nova SS - a documented L79 car (327/350 4-speed). I've owned it since 1972.


'Kermit' is a 1951 Chevrolet business coupe (no back seat installed at the factory). He has his original 216 engine and 3-speed manual transmission.


'Elizabeth' is a 1968 Triumph TR-4A that's been in storage for years. We brought her back to the shop at my house earlier this year and repaired the problems with the steering. Now I have to go through the hydraulics and fuel system...


'Neptune' belongs to my buddy John. It's a fast-and-fun '55 Chevrolet 4-door with the 302 and 4-speed out of a '69 Z28 Camaro. The name came from the car's color - Chevrolet called it Neptune green.

Hey Square Left - I think a lot of us would be glad to see an own dedicated car thread for your cars. I especially am interested in the '51 Chevy. :)

I love green cars. It's a shame not many manufacturer still offered them.

The best part of the Range Rover: its the Holland and Holland model.






And some more green.

Mitchi - thanks for the interest!

I've been (slowly - I'm old...) building a website for my cars, projects & garage. I'm using a Google site and have been trying to structure it in a way that's easy to navigate.
I've used Google for a couple of other websites and find it somewhat difficult to set up in as orderly a fashion as I'd like. I'll post a link when it's finished. :rolleyes:

I own a green car...



The previous owner of my not-so-green-yellow car bought a green car too. It also featured a classy gold stripe similar to mine, must be a 70s thing...



MG also did a limited edition run of pre-facelift ZRs in a metallic green that I really like. A former co-worker had a mint condition example that looked fantastic in the sun. I'll probably never own one because the limited edition cars are scarce and ZRs fall to bits like nothing else but I think they look alright. :lol:

Never knew that I wanted a green Viper before looking in this thread. But now I can't get it out of my head.
