Thanks, PCS.

The "60th anniversary" shot shows the color pretty well, I guess. But I've seen real-world pics of a Commodore painted in "karma" and it looks much darker and greener. If you run across a real-world pic of a Ute in that color please post it!

I think it is my leading contender when it comes time to order my next new ride.
