2019 Exterior Colors / California Special

looks like a new green is gonna be offered for 2019 MYs.

"Mustang enthusiasts now have more opportunity to personalize their car than ever before, with exciting new vintage-inspired colors including Velocity Blue, Need for Green and the iconic BULLITT modelís exclusive Dark Highland Green." -source: Ford Media re 2019 California Special

i think originally it was called "Spinel Green", but "Need for Green" has a better ring to it. i'm surprised Dark Highland Green will also be available! curious to hear what reaction comes out from the Bullitt fan base. so far, only came across a few pix...

I passed on a GT equipped the way I wanted it because it was GHIG. Don't know if I could take the need fro green either, However I would jump on the dark highlander green. But that's just me.

Those bright colours would get a little tiresome, IMHO

my dad just said "never sell in that colour. just like the white plain-jane."
...so that's where i get it from lol

After doing a side by side comparison, I see exactly what you mean now Gary

From the pics, this looks more like a true green, straight green color, whereas the GHIG was a pearl/metallic green. Like the difference between Performance white and a pearl white, or black and Tuxedo black.

I don't really care for it on that car. I don't think it will age well either, probably be hard as hell to get rid of in a few years if you went to sell it.

But according to resale value green and yellow cars hold their value better than other colors...

Yeah... like Competition Orange, there was a new one on the lot & it was just a bit dusty, & it looked horrible.

uhhhh, not a fan of that green.

Highland is good and don't mind GHIG, but would not buy either of them (Sorry Tony!).

Not a fan of the Rhino, Concrete, or "battle ship" gray that all the automakers are pushing either. Looks like primer with clear coat over it.

The orange and blue (Go BSU Broncos) are nice
