A couple of years ago Chevy made a metallic orange color for the Corvette that they called "Atomic Orange".

Re: I'd like to tell Toyota: Calvary is..........

I used to live in Japan and they're huge into t-shirts with enlish sayings, but 90% of them make no sense what-so-ever.
I remember one with a picture of a muscle car and it said "Fast Times in the Detorit". Obviously it was supposed to say "Detroit".
Other ones have these rambling sentences that make no sense, like "A time, a place, the wind shining through the sea as earth turns through relaxation". WTF?

I don't get it, but they love that stuff.

I don't think they mean anything by it, so you can probably change your Enola Gay silver back to fresco metallic.

Re: I'd like to tell Toyota: Calvary is..........

Oh, that's so irritating. That's one of my pet peeves. I was in the Cavalry, and I hear that all the time.

In fact the other day, I was talking to a new neighbor and he saw the Cavalry sticker on the windshield of my FJ (complete with crossed sabres), and asked "Oh, do you go there?" Meaning Calvary Church.

It's hard to see because it's small and because the wiper lines are right there, but:



I hadn't heard they were doing a Cavalry Blue! I hope they actually make it Cavalry Blue - their Army Green is a shade of green that *nothing* in the Army happens to be. Well, maybe the Swiss Army. I dunno.

OH, EDIT: I just Googled the new color, and I dig it. Needs a yellow stripe down the side, though.

LOL. Thanks for your service to "Cavalry" church. Did you have to explain the difference between dodging the collection plate and dodging a bullet

Another classic Japlish translation was a car in the 80's by Mitsubishi called the Starion. The hood emblem had running horses in it. Well, something got lost in the translation somewhere in the process but the car was to be called Stallion.
