@ Viking: That's Plum Crazy Purple, and don't forget about Sublime Lime Green, I saw a Plymouth Roadrunner in that color at a car show once and a Plymouth Roadrunner Superbird, same color in south Georgia on my way down to Florida back in december. About the undone hood cables, that would drive me crazy if I were the owner, like an unzipped fly.

"Hemi Orange" groovy name. I remember that lots of factory colors back then were real psychedelic style names like Ford's "Grabber Blue", and Chevy's "Hugger Orange" and Dodge's "Plum Purple". My memory is only so-so though since I was still in elementary school at the time. Good spotting on the undone hood cables.

@ Viking: This is one of my favorite cars of all time. And That color is actually called Hemi Orange. ;)
BTW: Does the owner know his hood cables are unlatched?

I remember when these Hemi Cudas came out, and I thought they were great. Is that "Orange Crush" colour? Looks great even today!
