Car Show Outtake: Remember ’70s Green?

P1020120 (1024x701)

Although I was not around during the ’70s, from watching The Rockford Files and other TV shows of the era, it seemed like there were two basic colors on automobiles at the time: ’70s Green and ’70s Brown. Last fall I saw what appeared to be a stock ’70s Dart Swinger.

Upon getting closer, I saw it was anything but stock, with narrow front tires, VERY wide rear tires, and a big honking engine–no Slant Six here, folks. But I still was attracted to it, with that neat green color, black bumblebee stripe, and original dealer tag on the back. Somewhere, at some car show, there is a matching brown one–I am sure of it.
