  2. Steve,
    I am probabnly wrong but I think that sub-lime is a modern day rendition of ugly green that they spritzed on MOPAR Muscle cars back in the late '60s or early '70s.

    Like I said I am probably wrong but this will at least give something for someone to refute. ;)

    Dodge called it Sublime, Plymouth called it Lime Light, code J5

    I had a '70 GTX that color. Wish I had never sold it.
     
  6. those colors look great when they are new and shiny...but don't look good as they get older.

    do you have an example of the color?
     
  8. If you're talking about 2011 Camaro color, it's Synergy Green!

    Sublime Green is a 1Shot enamel color, among others.....

    YEP!

    The new Camaro is Synergy Green. It is a great color. We are considering using it on my wifes 1960 Rambler American Wagon.

    There is also Green With Envy (2011 Challenger) and Snakeskin Green (2008-10 Viper). The Viper is darker, more vibrant.
    These are pearl, the old Mopar Sublime was straight.
    The new Sublime is fairly close to the old, but different.
