I don't think Brooklin is throwing accurate colors out the window lately, Harv,
but I am sorry to see that what we hoped would be a lovely Sierra Gold and Adobe Beige model is off.

The pink collection isn't an effort to replicate the colors accurately, but is a fantasy series of cars in various shades of pinks never seen on the 1:1 cars. I have no objection to them since they haven't been touted as accurate colors.

The Chevy is disappointing though, since the bronze (gold) and beige was such an iconic color combination for Chevy in the late '50s.
