A discussion that grew out of the 2020 Crosstrek Announcement Master thread about the XV new colour, and when colours are en Vogue, Dated and Retro. Ladies and Gentleman - your pictures please. 🐨
A beauty @Doca More Moderne than Retro. So far the dark greens and blues seem to be the stayers.1994, dark metallic green (still gorgeous) with 312 km on the odometer when I got her, brand new, in 96’. My first ever mod was an in dash cassette player with a 10 disk cd changer in the trunk, next to a 1 farad capacitor, an extra battery and 4 15” cast iron subwoofers. I still have the subs and my old amps.
This pic was taken on 16 Jan 06, with 266,255.05 km and my new VW only a few spots away. The tow truck would arrive for her only a few hours later. Sad day, I loved that car. She was a trooper. Lots of abuse, little money to maintain but she held together until some electrical fault that I couldn’t trace but it still ran great.
Not my dash but here’s what it looked like.

The 90’s will be retro soon enough, I’m just getting ahead of the curve.
Safety Yellow!!! Car Color and Crash Risk | Citywide Law GroupDuring the 25+ years I've lived on the Westside of Los Angeles, I've seen, maybe, three Triumph Spitfires (my first car) and maybe one 1500. Saw this one today, and it was yellow!
OAK commented how tiny it looked compared to the "SUV" next to it (a Range Rover - standard equipment for the shopping malls around here).
