Fern Green Metallics--Official Thread

I searched...there isn't one.

Over the years I've been so annoyed to see the Official AW, Black, TiAg, Blue...and there isn't a Fern Green.

According to Chase from years ago, it's the rarest of coupe colors...I have no idea what it's ranking is among saloons.

I do know that there are two paint codes for it though. 386 and some other number. You'll see the number on your color tag...under hood, on wheel well or strut tower.

Anyway, I'm not going to be discriminatory against Ferg couples, sedans, or if they came in Verts or Ms...

I'm sorry, but the other colors, you know, just aren't Fern Green Metallic.

I did think it was ugly at first, but it goes so great with ambers...a nice updated British Racing Green. Sorry other greens...sorry other colors...don't be too jealous. You could get painted our color, you know.

It's like walking into a cool dark forest, surrounded by sparkling ferns.

I'm original...wheels and 205/55/16

Cassette player with ipod adaptor I never use...and one ziptie, also added rear center shoulder belt. Oh, the one flaw is that my now working heated seat lost its lumbar when I replaced it...but I like non-lumbar seat better...could never really get that right.

I'll post some pics and hope you do too.

...and I'll just say that with "Dat Stance" I've gotten through 5" deep frozen slush, over badly pitted gravel roads, and on sandy roads in the Pine Barrens.

Dat Stance...not another!

Sharp looking car, Doug. Obviously well taken care of, at 230k+ and it still looks new.


Let's pretend I'm Fern Green, just for this post

Let me see if I can explain the concept of an official Fern Green Metallic thread so everyone can understand...

"One of the rarest"... definitley not "the rarest"

I like it because the color changes so much depending on the levels of light

I dont know if these pics are old, but I saw Dougs car in person a few days ago, and it looks clean. He still has all those bungie cords in the trunk, added a third rear center seatbelt, and the engine bay look fantastic!
