I'm green with envy. If I ever painted mine, I'd really consider a green tint, since I already have the doeskin interior. Very nice cars on here.

Hello Fellow Greens....

I'd like to post an area on my website for our favorite color. Send me your best photo or 2 along with Paint color and code if possible. Any other info will help too.

Help me show our color!

All will be posted at corvettecolors.com when I get a section ready to release.

Thanks
Ron
oh yeah... Send to [email protected]

The #1 colour in 1967 was Goodwood Green. Here is mine. People often comment on that colour, saying they have never seen it before although it was the most popular colour off the assembly line. I suspect most have been converted to re-sale red.

There are a lot of nice cars in this post, which proves green is not just for grass

The car was owned by a fanatic who loved to show it. The really funny thing is that when I looked at the car, I liked everythng about it but the color. Now I absolutely love it.

I know what you mean. I was kinda suprised at the number of people that came up to me at gas stations and car shows that told me they loved the color. Green kinda grows on you after awhile.

More green from New England

Rich (phclub) has the '70 Donnybrooke vert at the lift.
Dennis (pra4sun) has the '70 DB green vert in front.
Joe (68coupe) has the dark green 68 coupe on the right.

Thanks to Paul (greenice) for using his awesome shop area (dark quartz 75 up on the lift).

Ahhh...Green.
You all just inspired me to add a 'Green Vette' page to my website. Check it out in about a week and you might see your ride there.
Thanks for the beautiful rides and pics.
