It's not that I don't like the color, it's more like the color don't like me. frowwn laugh2

Literally every car I've owned, that gave me a ton of problems or flat out tried to kill me was green. confused

After my last bout of green, you will never see my name on the title of a green car, even if it has been repainted!

Sure, other cars I've owned have had problems/issues, but never as bad as what the green cars dish out. shruggy

I LOVE the look of a '70's B-body 4dr in green like DUFFMAN owns, but I'll never own one.

Variety is wonderful. beer


Not sure if you are my age or not but in the 70's where I live you couldn't give a green mopar away. Passed on many RR's ,GTX, Cudas because they were green. When I worked at Summit Racing in 1987 I came across a 70 GTX 19k miles original motor full interior, no rust for $4500. It had been a race car only since1972. Problem was it was lime light or as we refered to it as monkey vomit green.

I talked tomy brother who was the only one in the family that liked the color. He didn't have the money though. So I offered to loan it to him, we met the owner negotiated the price to $3500 and I loaned him the money. My interest for the loan was I got to use the engine in my Cuda. I raced that engine until 2001 when it split a cylinder. The engine needs one sleeve and a small repair to the pan rail. To this day I still don't regret passing on the car.

I've heard that people who bought these cars in green and other earthtone colors new were maybe older in general. In the case of green maybe had a military background so more disciplined. Not talking about the high impact color greens. Between my younger brother and I we have 3 Challengers, two light green and one hemi-orange. When we got them the two green cars were relatively complete undisturbed, matching numbers engine & trans. The orange car despite being off the road since 1979 based on the inspection sticker was apparently beaten like the proverbial red-headed stepchild.

Overall I like green, I think a lot of people do but a lot of people don't. Last summer my brother finished his light green Challenger and took it to the Cars & Coffee at Raceway Park, someone filming caught him driving in and put the event on youtube - the comments I could hear were "Bad Ass, Alligator top..."

I was only born in '72 but based on all the cars my father and older brothers & sisters had back then, standard transportation C-bodies, 318 Darts, Lebarons, Aspens, and stuff, an awful lot were green, brown, gold. And I think a lot of the performance models that were originally these colors got changed over to red, orange, purple over the years. That or a whole lot of the high impact color cars died young and a lot more of the earthtone colors survived. Nowadays I tend to gravitate to the cars with the unique combinations of stripes, tops, and interiors. Something like a burnt orange Challenger with a hood blackout, white interior, and a go-mango tail stripe. Or a light green car with a white top and tan interior like the one that surfaced recently. Three color cars. Not many ordered them new but a few did.

I agree that cars with boring colors tend to be found in better shape when talking about project cars. There also seem to be more of them left out there vs the hemi orange, red, black, ect. cars.

Some of that may be that the popular colored cars were found and restored first, and what is left are the "leftovers" so to speak.

It's kinda the same thing with manual 4 speed cars. When you see them as projects they are often abused like nobody's business. A column shift version of the same type of car has usually faired better.

Thinking back to '69 when I ordered my green Road Runner it must have been because I was 18..going on 19 and wanted a car that blended in with most of the non-muscle cars of the day and didn't attract the LEO's attention more than necessary. It was a fact even back then that red cars and high impact colors were more likely to get pulled over and ticketed for even the slightest of over the limit driving. Another was that if I might have considered another color it might have been B5 blue but a good friend had a '68 Hemi RR in blue and my up in age aunt had a blue cougar so for sure I wasn't going for blue laugh2 Black just didn't do it for me, yellow was out, just thought that green would just kind of be not bad as it was different from even the Ford and GM "racy" looking LEO attracting muscle car colors of the day. For me it was what was under the hood and rear axle ratio that made me enjoy driving and street and drag strip racing it.

Those 3 shades of green along with F6 get my vote as being very acceptable color choices on a Mopar, it's the F8 and lighter shades of drab green that seem to offer no attractiveness to a vehicle IMHO

There was a guy here years ago who had a over the top restored 68 Charger in that GG1 (?) dark green color that you don't see a lot of. Probably one of the nicest old cars around here and the green paint job looked a mile deep. Nobody in their right mind could tell you they wouldn't love to own it.

When they are period correct, I love them. I love the browns too.

I like the greens better than the brown and tans. I had a 71 Duster 340 F8 green with a white painted top and green bench interior. Loved that combo!!
