Back in September, I posted ten images on PetrolBlog with the aim of proving to a ‘Prominent PR Person’ that green cars rock. Sadly, I failed in my attempt, but through the power of Twitter I did discover that the love of green cars runs quite deep within petrolhead circles. So much so that the #greencarsrock hash tag often makes an appearance should a rather lovely green car appear on the high street.
Well I thought it was about time to compile another list. Here are the best ten from today. Image credits at the end.
The Metro is perhaps an unlikely entry. But not when it is the legendary 6R4. Superb!
Modified perhaps, but a mint Polo all the same.
Old-school classic Ford.
Let’s face it, the Stratos would look good even if it was painted in Dulux magnolia. But in green, it simply oozes appeal.
A slightly biased view perhaps, but Land Rovers look best in green!
The ultimate incarnation of the MkIII Capri and the ultimate colour. My old tail happy companion!
Stunning. This one will appeal to @RalphHosier
Ignore the dodgy alloys, this Cortina works for me.
You can make up your own minds on this one!
As driven by Steed in the New Avengers. One of the ultimate TV cars
Thanks for all the suggestions. There are enough suggestions left over to start compiling a third instalment, so keep using the #greencarsrock hash tag on Twitter!
