    If I could pick any color, it would be this! But I will be happy with a red one as well:

    Dear Friend Paladin,

    Thank you for these great Photoshop color choices. I love the Elio in Refrigerator-Sea-Foam-Green....If you will indulge me, I would like to make a request. Would you please make one with a Black Elio? My Elio will be in Shiny-Black-Licorice.

    The cars made today do not have much color. And most colors that do exist, are dull.

    There's a white one, and a black one, and a gray one, and a silver one,
    and their all made out of ticky tacky, and they all look just the same.

    It reminds me of the old ticky tacky little boxes song.

    Always like the Corvette Burgundy, and Cobalt Blue is gaining ground on my list of possible color changes for the creamsicle down the road. I hear ya, Pistonboy, on the humdrum colors these days (silver, white, black...yawn). I found the original owner of my '73 Porsche 914 a couple years back and he sent me (for a small fee) the original window sticker from the car. Right now it's red, and a pretty poorly done job I must say. Since the '73 is the one that'll be restored to it's original glory, I'm kind of torn about the factory color it came with. Definitely 70's, definitely stands out in a parking lot. Ravenne Green.

    I THOUGHT THAT ELIO HAD SAID THEY WON'T OFFER THEM IN YELLOW .

    PITY , THE FREEWAY HAD THREE FACTORY COLORS . YELLOW , ORANGE & RED .

    60% OF THE FREEWAYS 700 MADE WERE ORDERED IN YELLOW !

    Which would most people prefer: the current green or yellow.

    I personally would prefer the yellow over the current green.

    Has there been a thread asking which people prefer and allowing them to vote?

    If not, it might be an interesting thread to have.
