"Lime and whatever that blue color is will make a nice aqua color."

I knew a guy who got the first big job in his life and went out and bought a new Volvo to match his elevated status and position. Jim really couldn't afford one at that point but he had to have it he thought so he bought one the dealer was more than willing to cut a deal on just to unload it. It was that same aqua color and its never looked good on a car but what the hell......The dealer couldn't sell it and for Jim the Volvo name (and a healthy discount) easily overcame all things.

Turned out to be a good thing after all because he met his future wife, Cathy, one evening in the parking lot of their office building. He found out later she was parking close to him and trying to figure out how to meet him. Jim was pretty impressed with himself thinking his good looks and good job had won him fair maiden. Alas, it wasn't so.

One night after they had been married a few months Jim suggested trading up to a more dignified looking Volvo or possibly a BMW but Cathy wouldn't hear of it. She said it was the car that brought them together and she wanted him to keep it. Jim asked her what the car had to do with it and she replied, "There's something about an aqua Volvo man." they're not all great............bite me.........
