Name that colour...!

Just seen a Mk4 Panda: and it was a cross between this (my Oslo Grey -- although slightly green -- Mk2 Panda...)



...and this 127:



Anyone know what this colour is called, please?

Re: Name that colour...!

Trouble is this is from 1969, too early for the cars shown, but it might help;

Then there's this but it doesn't show the actual colours;

Re: Name that colour...!

I've just read my post back, and it's not very clear, is it? It's the colour name for the Mk4 Panda I'm after....

The only colour in that direction would be "CaffeLatte 715".

A real Panda wouldn't have such a pretentious name.

I'll have you know that NHS hearing aids are now a rather fetching silvery-grey colour (which is why they're beginning to match my hair colour rather well...)!

I saw a 500 in exactly the same colour as we were picking up our trekking on Friday. The salesman did call it Hearing Aid Beige lol!

Thats a playful name. If it were the new one... 'New Zealand blue mist with a hint of mocha.'

Possibly but it's been going on for years.

I like the punny ones - Ford had "there she blue" "last stand custard" and "history onyx" at one stage!!

Re: Name that colour...!

Perhaps 'sweet dreams turquoise' is not so bad after all then! By the way, has anybody ever seen a Venetian blue one?
