Green - it's the way forward...

So a Sage Green Aston wouldn't do it for you, Steve, nor a dark green 1920s Bentley, or a Lotus 47 in dark green with the yellow noseband???

[Dribble dribble!] That's possibly the one thing that would tempt me from Alpina (but only a lottery win would change my attitude to spending so much on a car).
