Thank you so very much.  This is very clever.  I can apply so many of these
little tricks to other graphs.

Starting from where you left off:

. separate mpg, by(mpg>20)

               storage  display     value
variable name   type   format      label      variable label
mpg0            float  %8.0g                  mpg, !(mpg>20)
mpg1            float  %8.0g                  mpg, mpg>20

. egen group = group(mfg), label

. gen group2 = group + cond(year == 1990, -0.2, 0.2)

. twoway scatter mpg group
, yla(0(5)40, ang(h)) xla(1/9, notick valuelabel) ms(none)
|| bar mpg0 group2 , base(0) barw(0.4)
|| bar mpg1 group2 ,
base(0) bcolor(yellow) barw(0.4) legend(off) ytitle(Miles per gallon)

Old Stata saying: "When you run into a wall with -graph bar-,
jump over it with a -twoway bar-." (Loses a bit in translation
from British.)
