10. Brewster Inexperienced
Whereas it’s much like a preferred late mannequin Porsche shade, we predict the Pontiac Firebird Trans Am of the Nineteen Seventies wears it higher. Truthfully we’re torn between the Corvette’s “Manufacturers Hatch” Inexperienced and the Brewster Inexperienced right here—it would truly be the identical shade with a distinct title.
9. Lime Inexperienced Vitality

8. Mint Inexperienced
Whereas many automakers have a “mint” inexperienced on their respective chip charts, we’re speaking particularly in regards to the Mint Inexperienced that adorned Jeep CJ Renegades throughout the Nineteen Seventies. Why? Effectively, not solely is it a cool shade, it acquired its title in honor of the The Mint 400 Off-Highway Race.
7. Sequoia Inexperienced Poly

6. Mist Inexperienced

Whereas each automaker had its personal barely completely different taste, we selected Plymouth’s Mist Inexperienced right here as a result of one thing about that contrasting woodgrain simply makes us smile.
5. Synergy Inexperienced Metallic
An ideal inexperienced for the twenty first century. It’s very paying homage to Chevy’s Rallye Inexperienced from the late Sixties, but has a contemporary look that makes it a wonderful complement to the nouveau-retro model of the fifth-gen Camaro.
4. Olive Drab
Although it’s sometimes called “Military Inexperienced,” the colour’s technical title is Olive Drab (and it’s not all the time the identical shade both). Whereas there’s clearly a function-over-form intent right here, Olive Drab appears good on something from a Mil-Spec M38A1 to a down-and-dirty scorching rod.
3. Highland Inexperienced
Certain, Ford made Mustangs in different colours throughout the 1968 mannequin yr—however after the film “Bullitt” got here out, it didn’t actually matter.
