Dropbox did the same thing earlier this year, prompting my switch to flickr. Glad I didn't switch to photobucket...

Anyone know how many there are in the USA?

I'd feel pretty comfortable saying there are more Estoril than Oxford.

There are less Estoril (58 in NA) as per M3portal linked above. I'd think any "individual" color should be pretty rare and more so rare than OG, simply for the color being "individual" and not a factory option.

Aside for Fern Green (which there are only 2 of in NA), OG is the rarest of the production (non-Individual) colors at (116 in NA). Technically, Oxford is the second rarest color, but I'd really love to know of those 2 Fern Green cars, are either still on the road or do either still exist at this point in time?


Nice find OP. Enjoy the car!

Perhaps it is just the nature of being on a forum then. Quite a few of those 58 on here.

Estoril cars will end up in enthusiasts' hands, and enthusiasts tend to be here.

TIL Fern was a production color and 2 were made. What year, 01?
