I wondered what they meant; that makes sense.  That's a cool looking wagon: nice two-tone with a "Strato-Streak V-8!"  I imagine it burned a lot of gas, but it was probably about 25¢ a gallon back then.

 
Back in the 70's I had the Buick version of that wagon. Same car except for trim. I really liked it. GM used 4 speed Hydramatics in those so the milage wasn't really awful maybe 17 ish. I sold it to a female friend and when she replaced the battery later she didn't put the hold down back and the battery fell over on a nice 100 degree day on Phoenix. It must have hit the fan as the engine compartment burst into flames and that was the end of the car. A real shame as it was almost like new before. Was really well made.

I guess they mean GM in general. The first production pillarless hardtops were in 1949 with Olds, Caddy and Buick (but not Pontiac).

Car colors tend to follow consumer goods products by a year or two. Avocado green appliances were all the rage at the time.

I had a Camaro with a 454 when I was about 18. I put a lot of work into building it, so I had some restraint, but I also used to bet people a tank of gas that it would spin the tires in all four gears. So Yay luck!

Yes, you probably were very fortunate to have survived with such a tempting vehicle - especially at that age.  The green shades were pretty popular back then - it seems like the Ford/Mercury green was a little lighter (or "yellower") than the GM/Pontiac green (I'm a little fuzzy on it, but I had a few friends who restored old muscle cars years back and they had the paint formulas and samples).  I guess those shades aren't as popular these days, though Kia and Ford (among others) do have sort of metallic "Day-Glo" greens on some of their models.

I've never bought a car new and color has never entered into my decision making in the slightest.  I even drove around in a retired ambulance for a few years.  However if you take away the black stripe and fancy wheels and put a lot more road dirt on it then this is the very first car I ever owned.
 

 
The 351 Cleveland more than made up for the color I think.  I also think I was very fortunate to survive owning such a machine at nineteen.
