Verde oliva met - yes metallic olive green. As stated he has an Alfetta GTV 2000 also in this colour which changes in the light from a pale green to a more intense darker green depending on light angle. it is a very nice but less common colour.
Michael lectured in design.
Yes unfortunately. I had no idea he died last year. No wonder I hadn`t seen him at any car events. Very sad. We bought my old Lancia Flavia Coupe back off him and I sold him Alfetta spares for his car. He was a witty, interesting nice chap.
