I can now click on the recent post and get to that one post, but I then can't go anywhere else on the forum.

Skip, I have the same issue on my android phone, only it isn't even working as good as it sounds like you have it.
I've given up on the phone use for now, waiting to see if this gets fixed at some point.

Anybody else have same problem or is it just me and my old age?

My '74 (a sedan) is "medium lime yellow".  Very close to the original Highlighter pen.  The same colours would have been available in the Runabout and wagon.

My first car (a '73) was "metallic turd brown".  I believe Ford called it "Aztec Brown Metallic".

Not sure if every colour was available at each of the three assembly plants (California, New Jersey, and Ontario).  Mine was built in Jersey.

My '74 is Saddle Bronze Metallic, a rich (the parts that aren't heat-crackled) coppery orange color. BTW, I've always been fond of the color I call Spring Green (Medium Lime Yellow), as well as Medium Yellow Gold (6C) and Bright Yellow Green Metallic (9C).
One can never have too many Pintos!
