My car is the Gecko Green New Beetle Convertible parked next to the white mini-van. I ended up with Emerald Green on my Suburban as it was the only option offered in the green family.

I would have been thrilled if GM had offered either the Cyber Green shown on the New Beetle Sedan below or the Gecko Green Metallic shown on my New Beetle Convertible below:

You may be the perfect cantidate for one of these:

I'm A big fan of silver. Hides dirt well and looks good. Any light color will not show dirt as much as a dark one will. Light blue works well too.

I like white

I like white period....Here's how anal I am about the color white...

My husband has to have a white truck too so that when the garage door is up all you see is white...Yes it's true..sick but true..

I also have to have all the can food labels facing the door of the pantry room so when you walk in you can see them right away as if to say....Take ME, Take ME! If they are in the cabinet they have to be facing to the front.

Funny thing is .....The rest of my life is a wreck! hahahaha

Two tone white over silver

I love this forum - any excuse to post a picture!!!
Our two-tone was specifically chosen for the Airstream.
We didn't think there was a blue that would match well - at least not from Ford.

It's all real. It was our campsite at the Badlands National Park a year and a half ago.

Hi 74"Twinkie",

Neat setup. What is your tow-vehicle model/year and trailer model/year?
