Does anybody know what color this is called? How many where made? Years?

I'm looking for it if anybody knows. It apparently had 2,900 miles on it Sept. Last year. Was at Mershons in Ohio.

A car painted that color was "Peoples Choice" at the 2013 Fun Rally in Phoenix. I'll try and dust off a picture...

Maybe it was this one (Phil's Cat)?

PS. Phil is the one wearing the French Blue unitard, but unfortunately he was just out of the picture when I snapped it. Wink

Yes, Phil's car won People's Choice. When Phil was getting ready to have his car painted, I put him in touch with a PCNC member that had the same color. The color is called French Blue, but it is not an original Pantera color.

OHH, that hits home! as I have been thinking of "5 shades of grey" for my rebuild color scheme.

BUT, when I saw this post I was immediately thinking that shade of blue would definately be more fun....decissions, decissions?
Just so you know. While I was working for Ford I heard a story. Our paint engineers could not figure out why they could not get a good paint color match after repairs. They sent a couple of guys to Italy to check the painting process. They asked who was responsible for the paint. They were directed to Mario out back. When they found him he was mixing paint i a 55 gallon drum. A little of this, a little of that.

Ha ha. That explains so much. My car was lime green originally. Not a bright intense green like like Dodge used but a dirty, dull one that looks like someone spilled a can of cigar ashes in the drum of paint.
