Sweet yellow candies from the Sixties / Seventies. Let's see what we have!

Yellow probably is a color which is very linked to the 60's and 70's. The good thing is that it matches with some nice cars. 


Let's see what we have. 

Ferrari 246 Dino:



Fiat 850 Coupé:



Fiat Dino Spider: 



Yellow is not a italian thing, as we found this color on french car, such as the Alpine A 110 and A 310:





And also on some cars from the North, such as Saab... Here The 96 V4:



The Audi 100S:



The Porsche 914: 



And the famous Volvo shooting break P1800 ES:



Do you have more to share from the same era? 

Best,

Nicolas

Started with a 4.7 and then 4.9-litre V8, the Bora had fully independent suspension, disc brakes and air conditioning.

Bora, indeed!

Afaik, both colours officially exist

I am not expert but here is a thread from a forum: "(Fly and Modena) are not the same colours. Giallo Fly is a deeper, richer Yellow than Giallo Modena, although everyone has to admit that its very hard to tell if cars in both colours do not stand close e...  

Interesting!

...saw a new Bentley convertible in Palm Beach a week or so ago that was a very bold shade of yellow. It was very appropriate in its surroundings.

No picture?

Which one is this?

In Toyota technical terms it's a TE-27 Corolla. In '71 they came out with this 1200cc fastback coupe. In 72 there was a 1600cc "hemi" option which is what I bought. RWD,

tossable, light (under 2000 lbs) and fun. Thought I wanted a red one but ended up buying this mustard yellow... and loved it. Nice styling which I improved by blacking out the lower section and window frames. My 1st "new" car purchase.

I didn't know that one.

Particularly love the Ferrari Dino and Alpine… those curves are gorgeous. I often think about the glorious machines of the past as to where we are headed with all these EVs. I can’t help but feel that my heart has been left behind with these old school ca...

1960s-1970s are the most beautiful period automobiles
