Its yellow with black wheels and splash guards, and a small dove tail spoiler. It has a ported and polished head and a great sounding performance exhaust system. I've put a nice sway bar on it so it corners like a dream and I'm thinking about slotting my strut towers for a bit of camber and I may lower it an inch or so. It wasn't running well for a while...terrible amounts of rust in fuel system... but now it runs well. During that sad time in its life it was mocked by my friends and called various things like Mellow Yellow, The Banana Car, and Old Yeller... but now that its running good its earned its reputation among my other fellow car enthusiasts.
