Default My new NB

Got it home today. It was a nine hour round trip, but worth it. The car was as clean as advertised. Leather, PEP, Torsen, 51K miles. Came with the original tan boot cover (new) a couple of bras, (can't say that I will use them) and a nice car cover. I will keep it inside, but the cover will be nice for winter storage. Ran great on the way home and it was our first day in the 70's so got some top down driving! The PO must have been color blind, as he said it was greenish? WTH color is this? Kind of a dark blue/grey? Got my boy in the pic. Zach would much rather be chasing pheasants than posing for pictures.

Nice find Stein. Welcome to the club. I think your car's color is "Montego Blue" if I'm not mistaken. It's the same color as mine and it does get confusing; depending on the light there are times that it looks green indeed.

Enjoy

Looks more like "Midnight Blue Mica"

(scroll down for color examples w/pics)

Montego Blue color shifts; from deep blue to sea green and unless it's dark both colors are present. It will appear green in areas directly reflecting light at the viewer fading to a deep blue everywhere else.

I stand corrected. It looks really nice whatever it's color.

He's a little thick after the winter. 96 lbs. The female is 102 AFTER being on the fat girl dog food for a month. Summer knocks 10 lbs off of both of them.
