The colors I chose in this illustration were arbitrary.  Basically, what I
meant was that it is quite possible to have a vivid, detailed memory of
something, only to later find that some of the details have become distorted
over time (perhaps another friend had a green Mustang).  Although, it might
be interesting to look at color memory mistakes and see if they are more
common in opponent colors.
