I like that color...there was a green metallic about 10 years ago that I saw once on an Avalanche that I really liked, never seen it again.

It may be this color--Medium Sage Metallic...the 5th gen Camaro would look great in this green, IMO..

Avalanche looks fantastic in that color. I like unique colors on cars....after almost buying a focus ST, I am eyeing the Fiesta ST. Love it in the Ken Block Snot Green....

I'm pretty sure that was a 2002 only color on the avalanche.

It's funny, I remember where I was when I saw it..was in winter in Colorado at sunrise in a restaurant parking lot, the morning sun was on it and the color was incredible.

I prefer pale yellows, if any. "Lemonade" on the Chevy Spark isn't bad, but GM's pale yellow of the 1960's is my favorite. I am sure it had different names depending on which division.

I really like that '60s pale yellow used on C2 Corvettes...looks good on big cars of the era like Buicks also, IMO...

A bunch of really nice greens in the last 10-15 years, after being just about non-existant for a long while before that. Seems they don't stick around long, unfortunately. Green is a vastly under-utilized hue. However; yellow, you can have. Strongly dislike almost all yellows.

...and yet sixties Pontiacs looked fantastic in yellow....

The mid-60s Pontiac yellow seen above was Mayfair Maize - you can google just "mayfair maize" and see dozens of pics. I never cared for it, just seems washed out & bland to me. Also doesn't match the aggressive nature Pontiacs usually had then, IMO.

The way GM ran in the heyday was the Divisions had their own names for the same colors. Check this chart to see an example. The except was Cadillac, which had it's own color palette.

I believe there was a general color pool decided upon, and each Division took their choice. Most colors overlapped, but some were quite limited, in only 1 or 2 Divisions. Sunfire Red was only found on '64 Pontiacs & Buicks. Nice color, kinda an iridescent red :

This thread has become a fantastic reminder that color can forever hold a potential customer's attention. I hope Chevy's newfound consideration for this fact, as seen in their two smallest cars, filters upward and outward throughout GM. Who wouldn't love to have the ability to customize their new Cadillac with color?

MOAR PHOTOS, PLEASE!

I like em both...the sonic would look good in "Rubber Ducky Yellow"
