Just because you can doesn't necessarily mean you should...

Given how limited a pallette a lot of modern cars come in I'm surprised this was even an option!

Looks like a variation on 'Hearing Aid Beige' :lol: :lol:

I find the limited palette of largely dull colours awfully, well, dull and disappointing :(

Cars should be painted in lively, bright colours... Dull should be deprecated...

Bar the colour I like that a lot :D Orions are now vanishingly rare although I do occasionally see a very late one running around near me...

They were good, despite being a Ford :lol:

I like those wheels too 8-)

Head-turner, dont pretend you wouldn't, even those who use the phrase "Poxhall" to describe the breed :-D

Nope!

I did have a bright yellow Imp, hand painted. More to p**s off the directors at work who looked down on 'unsocial' vehicles, i.e. anything not their new Rovers, MGBs and Jaguars.

You are cordially invited to post something up which would turn your heads gentlemen.

Something silver or grey which looks the same as anything else in the supermarket carpark perhaps? :-D

Mark 1 Cavalier for me 100% more interesting than the 4 Mclarens the 2 Maserati's and the Ferrari I came across the other day :-D

Enjoy the rear view!

Your wish...............

The car that saved me from buses when I failed my first driving test (for passing a row of parked cars too closely, in my defence I was giving the oncoming cyclist more room!):
