Default rare color?

The color of my 96 SE is "light teal metallic" with a teal leather interior. I have never seen another one this color...ever! It makes me wonder just how many were ever made. Is there any way to discover how many cars of a particular color were produced in any given year? Have any of you ever seen this color before? (you can check it out in the "your ride" section with the title "more 96 SE pics")
I look forward to all of your comments!

not super common, Seems to be a 96 only color?

Teal leather was not common at all, I've seen it only once before.

Yes, there were in fact production numbers. Many of them. Really cool ones.












































And we have NFC what they are by color.





But green is known to be the quickest off the line.

Not to mention that Dark Bronze Mist was not first used in 1999. We have two members here who have a 1996 and 1997, respectively, who have that color.
