    Don't I wish!! No...my garage looks like a tornado hit it..twice. The Ravenne Green car in the pic was just one of the best representations of the strange color I'm going to have to repaint my '73 to get her back to original [some people love it...some think it's the ugliest Porsche color ever].

    That song always annoys me, the elitist sneering at common people buying what they could afford instead of what the snobs thought proper.

    You don't even have a clue about the tune "Little Boxes", written by Malvina Reynolds- it was a political satire, from a politically left personality. Pete Seeger sang it early on, thinking mid '60's (of course if you remember the 60's you weren't there)
    Well, X:XXVII, early up tomorrow, snack tonight, thinking Spicy Tempeh and Broccoli Rabe, with Rotelle.
    (Broccoli Rabe is an acquired taste -bittersweet), VERY IMPORTANT,-trim and chop the stems coarsely. The fennel seeds add great flavor

    The Pantone Color Institute has unveiled a new color: “Minion yellow.”

    As the name suggests, the color was inspired by the bespectacled animated charactersfrom Universal Pictures’ and Illumination Entertainment’s “Despicable Me” franchise, and the upcoming spin-off film “Minions.” According to CNET, this is the first time in three years that Pantone has released a new hue.

    I rally like the pink and the light yellow. Had a 1968 Chevrolet Caprice that was canary yellow. Thanks for your efforts. I saved both pictures to my hard drive. Thanks!

    Great paint is not cheap. ELIO is limited on what they can offer due to cost. Harley offers some amazing colors most of them are two coat paint jobs to make the color. Harley Chrome Yellow is a sharp color that would look great on an ELIO.
    I am hoping the cream color is close to the Harley Orange in pictures it often looks like it.
