I was agonizing over color choices, and soliciting advice from my wife, and even friends/co-workers. (see thread "Green or Yellow")

To make this easier for me (and others who helped) I tracked down a variety of hi-res pics that this forum's community had lovingly uploaded, so that when printed out on a photo printer will look like high quality glossy 35mm prints. I then carried them around with me for a day or so. (yeah, and I politely rubbed it in "look what I am getting" :lol: )

Funny thing is I normally hate when people upload or send hi res pics without shrinking down, but this worked great for me!! THANKS!

So, I thought I'd share the links. Unfortunately I didnt save the original thread or poster for each... so cant give credit where credit is due.
I did update the silver pic, but for the most part these are the pics I evaluated from. I have an Epson PictureMate Deluxe printer, and everyone was blown away by both how great the car looked, and how great the prints came out with these photos (I had cropped them a bit before printing)

Last thought... would be great to get some suggestions on replacement color pics, find one really good one for each color... and possibly add the links to the FAQ??

Keep in mind, each computer monitor will render colors a bit differently, for a variety or reasons.

when you talk about yellow with people they may not like it but once they saw my yellow in person they were speechless
Wow are you right on the money:thumbs:

At the first family party about 6-7 of my inlaws said that when they heard I had ordered a Yellow car they winced. Upon seeing it every one of them said it was the best color for this vehicle.
I tend to agree

Even the sales people said they were knocked for a loop. Whenever I am in teh SKY dealer they all pass the word -- "The Yellow one is here." And they all come out to see it...
