It's a very loud color, but looks awesome as a boss with the black for contrast!

The have a V6 in that color at Jordan Ford in San Antonio. It's not to god-awful offensive (considering it's green).

"Got to have it Green" sounds like Ford's marketing department's clever way to lure customers away from Dodge's and Chevy's lime green offerings.

That name belongs on s Mopar color chart, not a Ford.

Ford had Grabber Lime way back when and that's what "Gotta Have it" should be called,

But what about bringing back Grabber Green?

I saw this new 2013 color in person on the highway and it was not as neon as some of the pictures online portray. It had a slight metallic lime to it but not as light as the 05-09.

It has a "pearl" in it. I'm not a green fan, per say, b u t, I kinda liked it. I guess because it was different. I think, that with the right set of wheels, it cold be attractive. BUT, I'm not sure for how long I could stand it. I also like the "orange" on the Raptor truck. MINUS the graphics.

GHIG does not photo well. Saw a Boss this color at a car show and looked completely different than any pic i've seen. Much better in person.

Thats the closest a Mustang should ever come to being "Green"!

Sometimes, I see cops with their backs turned writing tickets. When I drive by I can see them stick their heads up,and sniff the air,catching a whiff of exhaust and burning rubber,the crimson smell of speed,telling them a Race Red Mustang is somewhere nearby!

"Gotta have it Green" looks like we're trying to revert back to the days of olive (snot) green, baby $**t yellow and cream gold (hideous). Alas, history repeats itself. After all, slim fit jeans with massive cocker-spaniel/clydesdale horse bell bottoms below did resurface in the 90's. It's only a matter of time before those filty colors of the psychadelic 70's return.

But...I'll have to see one in person. Might change my mind. Not liking the pic's, though Grabber Green looks great!
