"foobies" = Non prototypical paint schemes. Could range from schemes that were on similar cars to the model in question, to totally bogus paint schemes. So yes, if you buy one think it's prototypical you would have been fooled.

I'm new to the group. Could the term "foobies" be defined? Is this word consistent with "foolish," "fooled you," and other similar constructs?
