    I have been sort of looking for a late model 80 or LX and was wondering what the percentage of colors were produced. I have found a couple of pretty sweet green 80's but I already have 1--anybody have a good estimate? Please post what color or colors you have.

    Blue
    sage
    white
    red
    black
    gray
    gold
    silver
    green---90%......

    I have no idea the % per color. I can tell you what see the most of around here.

    Dark green, White, then black, followed by gray/moonglow.

    Both of mine are gold/champagne or something like that.

    The dominant color in Queensland seems to be white with red dirt on it.

    Mine is green/charcoal. I've seen several 450's like this, but no other 80's.

    Do a search, there already was a poll where everybody voted on the colors they had....

    Mine is the red.

    Yeah, it looks like the Lex, but without the funky door paneling. And it's got the bling gold emblems.

    I remember a poll about this but I can't find it now, must not be doing it right. My 97 40th is antique sage pearl, whatever that means because the only sage looking colors are the pinstripes stem to stern from genuine Nevada sage. Major drawback to clearcoat.

    Here in central Colorado Dark Green is promanant on late model 80's. White would be next but there are also quite a few black. As for LX450's Champagne seems to be in the lead.
