[Vwdiesel] Green Striped Engine

My 91 Jetta NA has a green block. Green blocks were common, and every factory
new engine up to and including my 91 have been green blocks. I have not seen
a green stripe. I have not seen a green oil pan (always black or rust on older units).
I have seen black blocks, but not on any cars that I've bought new. I think
I had a early 80's Rabbit (my 82 or 80) with a black block, but that
car had an extremely colorful history. No pun intended.
