Nice. I would love to see more pictures. I have a 73 B that was originally limeflower green, but is now BRG.

Thanks Clay, I've posted a few more pictures. When I bought the car, I was told the color was called "Tundra", but after receiving the BMH certificate, I now know it's called "Limeflower", and was only offered during 1973 production. Took a short while to get used to the color - but I wouldn't change it for the world, now!

I would go back to it at some point, if i could, but I don't want to give up my tan interior. That blue/black is too hot!
