Ceylon  Yes a rare color  Ceylon  now  the country of Madagascar   

What inspired a gold metallic color to be called Ceylon ?  gold/orange chile oil ?

 

C'est la vie  a term that means That"s Life  -  a recognition of "Oh well"  Great play on words Innica !  I think this car is toast

 

But what are the thoughts about why an early 70's gold metallic color was named Ceylon ?? 

 

Geography fail right there 🙂

 

Sri Lanka has always been synonmous with the jewellery trade and gold in particular. They've mined it for thousands of years.

In Quebec, at least, the full expressions is, “C’est la vie. J’y pense et puis j’oublie!”

 

”That’s life. I think about it and then I forget.”

 

Might be applicable to this poor specimen.
