I don't know , I'm mighty proud of my "Bronze Green" , c.1972 , Raleigh Grand Prix . I'm thinking my Grand Prix has much nicer features .

But , I won't quibble !

That "Molteni Orange" paint , along with Eddy's photo , and his achievements , prominently displayed , sure do make a statement .

Besides , on a cold foggy morning , that cement truck might never see my "Bronze Green" Grand Prix . But that "Molteni Orange" would be much more visible !

So hey , it could be a real life saver ( or maybe just a tangerine flavored LifeSavers ) .
