So, you're Light Beige Metallic - Monotone.

Mountain Laurel is the REAL name of the color adopted by Mary Kay Cosmetics. Mountain Laurel was a standard color offered by Cadillac for 1956 & 1957. It was the original pink hue that the cosmetics company selected and was used from 1985 thru 1988. Then it was slightly altered darker for 1989. Since then the color has been altered many times. Still, in & around Mary Kay Cosmetics - no matter waht alterations are done to the color, they still call it Mountain Laurel / Mary Kay Pink

what was it like in the late '70s/early '80s? I ask because in the movie I saw about mary k. (I only watched it to see the cars, don't worry) and they were a darker pink than the powder light stuff I see on FWD caddys. also, was the one in Goodfellas a mary k.?

I didn't see Goodfellows.
The 1989 - 1993 were deeper that the original, but when I say "deeper" it was only very very slightly deeper. In 1994 thru 1999 the got lighter in color, but less "pink". About 2000 or so they got Pearlized (metallic) and lighter yet!
This continued to 2005, inclusive. The 2006 is still pearlized but deeper and trurer PINK than most in the past. It's pretty PINK for 2006 !! Allantes were always PEARL Pink....

Oh you HAVE to. You'd enjoy all of the cars in there, especially the '79 Phaeton. In one famous scene, Henry has a '66 Chrysler Newport convertible sedan (atleast I think that's what it was) and theres another scene with a '64 or so Buick Riviera and many others!

Hello,

This morning I saw a white 78 Le Cabriolet with white top and red interior. Wire wheels, dual exhaust, appeared to be clean. It was crossing the I-94 bridge from Wisconsin into Minnesota. Very cool!

Yeah, that too, I forgot that one. I'm not a Corvette guy by any means. Awesome scene though.

When that scene started, my friends thought he was gonna trash that 'vette because in that shot in his rear view mirror, that 'vette is the main thing you see.
