    I know it's silver but in some lights, it looks a little greenish and it bugs me. Is yours the same?

      It's a redo. My friend in St Louis has a '68 Barracuda that is supposed to be the same color but it looks greenish in pictures. Okay, this first one doesn't count because it's surrounded by vegetation.

        Yes it depends on what light it's in. I don't know what the original formula was but I bet it had a little gold and green metallic in it.

          Here's a Bee and a Runner from a few years ago.

                Silver is a popular color today, but the shade of A4 silver is different from today's silver and it looks really sharp on these old cars. It really surprised me that there weren't more painted that color back then. Personally, I'd love to have a nice silver B-body.

                  I painted my '70 Charger A4. The color does take on the colors of its surroundings a bit but I love the color personally.
