The section titled "Can color add or detract from a car's value?" backs up what I thought about certain hue between yellow and blue.

They said if you have a green car you might as well junk it because nobody will want to buy it. I guess there is some truth to that. JB

The article also said that mfrs. will introduce pink as an option here in the states because of its popularity in China. Think anybody except Mary Kay will buy that color? Talk about globalization gone amuck, that's it right there.

Have you ever seen a 1955 Furd Crown Victoria painted pink & white? How about one painted pink and black? They were sharp cars. JB

You could get away with that on the older cars because of all the trim work. I think it would be harder to pull color combos like that on newer cars and make it look right because their is rarely a body line or brightwork to break up a base color coat.

Only thing that could be done is pinstriping to "create" a visual break, and if not designed right, would look rather cheesy like generic graphics from Autozone.

I like the new fuchsia Challengers. I'd get one for my wife anyways. Regardless of decreasing value in the future, Sublime Green would have been a wise one to bring back IMHO.

Challenger looks best in Plum Crazy, IMO.

I too would like to see a Challenger in Sublime.

Saw a '73 Roadrunner over the weekend in Sublime. What a sharp A$$ car.

My freind Jacks.
Jacks '74
1974 AMC Javelin AMX Pierre Cardin edition. This one's fitted with the big 401 cubic inch V8, has all the factory Go Package options, and had the radio and some other accessories deleted at the factory for reduced weight. It's never been restored and is still owned and driven by the original 1974 purchaser. It's a regular attendee at the weekly Garden Grove, California Historic Main Street car show, at which it was photographed by en:User:Morven on Friday, May 21, 2004


Plus we had a amx there.

I have been giving some semi-serious thought to putting a spoiler exactly that on the roof of my 78 Elky. Of course the only thing stopping me is I am too lazy to do it. JB

Chrysler didn't buy out AMC until the 80's. Before then, GM was more of a partner than anyone. A LOT of AMC Jeeps came out with Buick (dauntless) V8's & Buick V6's. Then again, AMC also used Audi 4 cylinders in the Pacer & were using all of the big 3's trannys way back in the 60's-70's, so nothing really surprises me about that company.
