Default Got Green? Let's see it!

Ok, so here's the deal. Another thread dealing with color selection has started the wheels turning in my head about my car. My car was, until recently, Donnybrooke Green. Now it is down to bare fiberglass. I have about 2-3 weeks before I will be ready for new paint to be laid down. I have decided to definitely stay with green because I like pulling into shows and being one of the few green cars around. But, I would like to see all of the other shades of green that you guys have before making my final decision.

So.... Got a green meanie? Let's see it!!

Elkhart Green is one of my favorites. I have thought for some time now that I would like to use this color. That really is a nice looking vette you have there!

I can't recall when the last time was that I saw a Brands Hatch Green car in person. Which is odd considering there were more of those than Mille Miglia Red in 1971. I guess nowadays the reverse is true. Several people that I know that currently have a black or red car can tell you that their car was originally green from the factory. Brands Hatch is truly a nice color as well. I would like to be able to see one up close.

Does anyone have a picture of a 75 done in Bright Green? I see that has an optional color listed for 1975, but I can't recall ever seeing one single car painted that color.

There weren't many painted this color from the factory, only 1664 units...

#2 Color, right behind War Bonnet Yellow at #1, correct? I am not a big fan of War Bonnet, but I know that some people absolutely love it!

I do like it from the standpoint of being... not red (*flamesuit on*)

I have one! What are the chances? Original paint except for bumpers and 24" inward on on fenders and quarters.

Another elkhart green.
Repaint in lacquer from the early 80's. Still holding up pretty well.
I can send you pics if you want.
I also like being the only green car at shows as well.

Sure you can. The pics should be hosted by another server,
like photobucket.com ... or your own webspace provided by your ISP.
Once the photo can be viewed with a browser on the internet,
then the link(or image) can be put in the post.

Mine was originally Donnybrooke Green ... going to black.

If I put her back to green, then we would have 4 out of 6 C3s in our local group that are green. Nope - keeping a balance.

68 only color "British Green" Resprayed about 4 years ago.


I too, love having one of the few green Vettes around. It is a fine metalic which pictures really dont do justice to.

I knew that there had to be at least one hanging around here. Thanks for the pics. I really like that color, its a shame you don't see more of them. It's unique.
