Fair is fair. Go for it Brian! (It's not like I know anything trivial anyway)...

Good job though! I thought a photo would be fun because it's hard to google an image...

Thank you! The hints definitely helped! So I guess I kinda cheated.

We'll go back and forth all day so I will just give in and ask a question so the fun can continue.

I think this is a good one. I wrote a note and stuck it on my dash board while driving home the other day.

The truck in the photo below is a very familer sight around the highways of California. It belongs to the government agency that builds and maintains roads. It's color is a GM fleet color since 1936. In the fleet books it's called "Omaha Orange". It is a pretty funky color and not one you would think could be found on a Corvette. Yet, Chevy put it on a Corvette for three years!

What are those years?

Brian



And if the intersting bike in the photo catches your eye you need to check out where I found that photo while searching on Google, very interesting stuff! (click here for interesting bikes)

This is one of the things I like about this game, you learn something! Your photo and answer is very interesting to me, VERY interesting. I had no clue such a thing existed. Thanks!

I see Ontario Orange was offered from 1970 to 1972 but the color doesn't seem very Cal-Trans-sih...http://corvettec3.ca/colors.htm

Nope, that isn't the one. It wasn't called "Omaha orange" on the Vette.

No Dan I didn't mis-read it. He mentioned Ontario Orange I simply said that it wasn't called Omaha Orange on the Vette. I guess that did sound confusing.

Yes Dan the three years they used that color are in the site you posted the link to. They aren't called "Omaha" but they are there. Just looking at the color names aren't going to do a thing for you. You will need to google the cars with the color you think it may be. Boy this is a little home work!


Where are the Corvette nuts!

Trivia

"Corvette nuts"

Isn't that a bit redundant? (sez the guy who has owned 2 of 'em!)

I imagine these are meant to be 3 consecutive years. If so, I say Orange Flame for 1975 and 1976, and Orange for 1977. I used the list posted by Dinger this time.
