Back in high school and college, a pal had one of these beasts - IN THAT COLOR. Robin's egg blue exterior, interior, steering wheel, carpeting, everything...in baby blue. Granted, I was driving a Plymouth hatchback at the time - but it was black, dammit!
One night, he was driving a few of us, including a new boyfriend of a girl we knew. New Guy got into the car, looked around, and made a comment we still talk about over a few drinks.
"Phil. Your car. It's so f*!king BLUE."
As for the Mustang II - my theory is, it was the seventies. People were wearing polyester and hanging out at discos. AMC was building both the Pacer and the Gremlin. It could have been worse. And, above all else, it's still a Mustang. It grows on you. Just not in that color.
