Google that last car - the 1955-56 Dodge La Femme - to see the ultimate in marketing cars to women.

Additionally, buyers were presented with a "stunning shoulder bag in soft rose leather...fitted with compact, lighter and cigarette case." Unfortunately, it seems that many of these accessories disappeared before they even reached the dealer showroom and, consequently, such accessories are EXTREMELY rare today.

Agreed. With all those cool period colors why did Porsche make so many doo-doo brown cars?

Any car in Teal, or any variation of "blue green". There has been only one car to pull that color off and it's an FD RX-7 in the really dark blue/green.

i submit this.

"how do i make an already feminine car more more imasculating? oh i know! paint it teal and have a ugly bish who's favorite color is teal sit on it! Brilliant!!!"

I think it must be the bag/sack/whatever the gray thing is below that giving you the impression. It's not as pronounced with the yellow car, nor was it with the original works Astons:

I was totally going to mention that obnoxious lemon yellow the Audi B5 A4's had. There's one in my neighborhood that has crappy chrome wheels that the thinks he's the **** on a stick.

i actually saw a lime/margarita green BMW 3 series in Hoboken, NJ... i can give directions to where i saw it to anyone willing to steal it, paint it, and return it to the idiot who payed to make it that color. i think it counts as community service/charity

oops someone beat me to it. but still. BLECH

One of my neighbors just bought an Elise in Krypton Green. Makes it look like an emergency rescue vehicle - which I suppose it could be.

Hello, I believe you have the wrong forum.

beachbum believes WRB is the ONLY right color for an Impreza. Then again, I've been a WRX fan since Subaru's first title with McRae.
