I thought the moderator said not to go through the Crayola crayon colors
That's funny,even a moderator has replied to this thread.
Let me think about this,Crayola list 120 different colors and I have ask about yellow cars & green cars,I also ask about black but since black is the absence of color it kinda cancels itself out when it come to color.
So hang in there,next weeks color may be Chartreuse or Salmon Pink!

Not green but the car is from Ireland...
The Shamrock was a car produced in Ireland for a brief period during the late 1950s.
The business was established by an American businessman, James F. Conway and William K Curtis in Castleblaney, Co. Monaghan. The aim was to produce a large luxury car model for export to the US market.
Shortly after production began, however, design flaws became apparent. Although the car was big and heavy, it used a relatively small Austin A55 1.5 litre engine, which limited performance. The A55 also provided the transmission and suspension. Another problem was that the rear wheels were shrouded by body panels and a rear wheel could not be removed (for puncture repair for example) without dropping its axle. The car used fibreglass body panels and was styled as a four seat, two door, coupé with removable hardtop. The wheelbase was 98 inches (2487 mm). All cars were painted white although one in the USA has been repainted candy green
Production of up to 10,000 cars a year was talked about but as few as ten complete cars were produced during the six months before production ceased. After the factory closed, the unused parts were dumped into the local lake, Lough Muckno.
The car is now very rare, and only eight are believed to be still in existence: five in Ireland — one each in Killarney, Castleblayney, and Wexford and two in Drogheda — and three in the USA, one in Seattle and two in California.
I had the awesome skilled guys on the photoshop thread do their magic!
Here are some from a few years ago.
Being Irish, born on St Patrick's Day, having spent two years wearing olive drab, and my first car was green....I hate the color green. Except green money. I like green money
and now on to green....
Funny factoid Beaner, one of the biggest drinking days in the US is St. Patrick's day, however I was in Ireland on holiday last year and ironically the bars are all closed that day. Sobering aint it?
