Default was it black or green?

I just drove by a 92-95 SSEi and from the rear I swore it was black.
then from the side I could have sworn it was green

is there such a color or are my eyes playing tricks on me?

if so, what would the color be called?

the rest of the car was a POS though.

Black, Drk Greem, Dark Blue, are the only 3 colors that are dark.

If it looked black, it was black, you cant mistake my green for black unless its really dark out side

trust me. it had a chameleon like paint. unfortunately as I was driving by I was taking a right and she was going straight. but it was changing colors and the paint wasn't new by any means.

I think that if the car'* body was in terrible condition, it'* probably a badly-done chameleon paint job. The worse off the body, I've found, the better off the paint job, rims, audio system, etc. Strange phenomenon.

I definitely vote for Dark Polo Green then. I've personally never seen a 92-95 with it, more common on the 00-03, but its possible.
