Thanks Rino. The color is Grabber Lime. It's actually a little lighter than the pictures show. The color doesn't photograph well with normal exposure settings, as it seems to wash out under direct sunlight.
These photos were actually shot one stop underexposed.
My old plates were kind of mangled and didn't seem fit for the new paint, so my daughter gave me these as a gift.

It takes guts to go with some of those Grabber colors, so congrats! I'm about to paint a 71 the original light blue myself.
It's a funny thing but my brain tells me they're gonna look like crap, but in reality they look GREAT!
(Actually I'm more nervous about the light blue than I would be about the green. I'm afraid mine will look boring. With lime I'd be afraid it would look pukey - but it doesn't - really!)
The easy one is grabber orange of course, which everyone still likes, but I'm trying to go original.

Pears and Cherries. Used to grow a lot of row crops (Tomatoes, Corn, and Sugar Beets), but those markets are drying up in our area.

Have you seen the Ford Muscle car video by My Classic Car?
They feature a Boss 351 in Grabber blue and Argent colors. Verrry sharp!

As far as my car goes, the color was easy. I fell in love with it when I bought it (my first car in 1974), I just added the hockey stripes and matte hood when I repainted.

I'm so thankful to my Father for not letting me sell the Mustang to get the Corvette I had to have in the mid '70's.

However, he didn't stand in the way at all when the Vette was sold.

I don't miss it either.

I think it looks very nice, I've always like the green best outta all the Grabber choices myself.
