10 green cars sitting on a blog

10 of the best Major Waffle
A selection of 10 cars that look great in green paint.

I was challenged by a 'Prominent PR Person' today who fervently disagreed with my suggestion that green is one of the best colours to grace a motor car. The look of horror on 'Prominent PR Person's' face was such that I wondered if I'd been misheard and was in fact saying that the coffee shop was on fire and all the exits were blocked. But no, I'd merely suggested that if was to purchase a new Volkswagen Scirocco tomorrow, I'd be ticking the option box alongside the words 'Viper' and 'Green'.

Sensing that my credibility as an automotive voice of reason was hanging in the balance, I threw open the debate to my followers on Twitter. The following list summarises the subsequent discussion. You can make up your own mind as to whether green cars rock or not.
