Fock you! (jk, seriously, no , I'm not. Yes, I am.)

LOL. I don't have one of these, nor do I want one, but I have gray hair and see the attraction.

We all had one of these in high school. A 1968 Camaro cost about $800 in 1978 (I owned two of them.). I'm sure the Challengers were similar.

Corvettes were higher, running around $4k for a good 10 year old example.

The retro back in that day was the 57 Chevy. There is always a popular retro. You don't have to like it, but a lot of good people do.

Lime Green was an OEM Challenger color from back in the 70's. They had a lime green iridescent and one called Limelight

what's wrong with that?
if someone likes the car, so be it. it's a bold car. i'm not crazy about them but if someone wants to spend their hard earned cash on them, so be it.

Anyway, posting on here at 9pm on a Saturday night your quarrel should be with your social life and not me.

Going to have to agree with this. Grabber blue and whatever that green color is for the mustang look like a ss too. The hellcat in black would look deadly though.

I know, just posted a lime green pic, but it still looks badass. Add the blower to it, and I think it's a winner. Will wait until they hit dealer lots and go for a little ride.

Never ever....I would never own a black car. Not looking to spend my life maintaining paint. I like my toys in crazy colors. I saw the plum crazy in person and it was beautiful, so I'll end up with purple, lime green, or header orange if I decided to buy one.

Word. People on the internet, including you. How does this connect to me going into a shop and bragging about HFCs? I just made a statement saying that my car is just as loud.

Dumbass.

Thats the goal. I already have a red, and was upset when I traded in my orange jeep. Definitely trying to complete the skittles rainbow. I like my cars in loud colors.

Pretty sure my next one will be white.

I like understated colors.

I had my car plastidipped firebelly orange this past winter.

Took it off within 3 weeks cause I got pulled over all the time, just for "curiosity."

White is the only "non color" color I like. Luxury cars I buy in white. Toys need to be loud. If your parents bought you a white big wheel when you were a tike, you'd slap em.

I've been driving loud color cars for ages, and have never been pulled over just because of color. Sure it gets attention, but you are obviously doing something wrong for them to pull you over.

Loud OEM colors are different when compared to a LOUDER HIGHLIGHTER ORANGE.

Yup I would, but I've grown up since then. I'm a fan of sleepers and understated cars. Just how I roll.
