    Nice wagon.

    I was wondering though - is my personal 'color determinator' off? The B-A-T ad indicates the color is twilight BLUE over AQUA vinyl upholstery. To my eye, the exterior color looks like a medium forest green in some pics, a lighter turquoise green in other pics, with a turquoise interior. But it definitely AIN'T BLUE!

    On a side note, the wife and I have been having a 'color battle' for years. She sees a color that she calls 'turquoise blue', while I see the same color as definitely a 'turquoise GREEN.

    Haha. Ain’t jumping in that family squabble. But you should show her the 1964 Ford color Pagoda green. It too looks blue. Cover up the color name, and when she shouts blue. Bam you got her. Lol. Agree on the Chevy. It ain’t blue.

    I guess it a shadow, but the hood and above the door handle elevation molding looks darker. I vote greenish blue, more green than blue.,

    I agree, the car is definitely green. I have seen the opposite however, my brother bought a brand new Honda Accord in 1994 or 1995. That car was a light blue but the title said that it was green. I still see those cars occasionally in that color and it makes me think about who in the world would think that color should be called green!

    Maybe they painted in some kind of color-shifting stuff like Ford had with the Mystichrome Cobras?

    My son has a '96 Townie in green, but under some lights you'd swear it has blue mixed into it, and it's never been painted.

    Remember in the early 90s we had a resurgence (for a few years) of crazy colors like aquas, irises, greens and crazy blues and pinks?

    I remember Bill when I was still in Chicago I had a friend that had a ‘95 Town Car that appeared to be an eggplant color, but under a certain type of street lamp it appeared like a metallicy green. That Impala reminds me of a color closer to a Laurel green that Chevy had with a combination of turquoise metallic mixed in for measure.

    Apparently our brains can interpret the colors our eyes see differently so blue to me could be green to you. Something to do with the rods and cones in the eye. Just read this morning that the Japaneese had just one word for both green and blue until the world standardized traffic light colors in the 1930s or so - their lights looked blue to non Japaneese.

    That interior reminds me of my old maid aunts bedspread. I’m glad it was his $40gs and not mine. Lol

    Beautiful wagon. I love it. And I agree, it is certainly green.
