Pictures Of Your Blues.....


Recommended Posts

Hey All,

When I picked up my 76 the only stipulation the wife had was that it had to be repainted as she hates the brown.  I've tried to convince her for the past 6 months that its a great color but she's not having it.  So the CFO of the family has narrowed it down to a blue tone, hopefully dark metallic.  Im hoping people can post up pictures of their cars so I can show her some options and if you have the paint code and name that would be even better.  I remember at one point there was a link to all the codes and you could select one to see it on the car but I cant seem to find the link anymore.  I've also tried searching the forum and google but a lot of the older posts have been lost.  Thanks in advance for your help!

post-10-0-12368100-1369962852_thumb.jpgThis is not a "dark" blue - it's BMW's Pastellblau on my wife's '76.  She loves the color and, even though we live in a relatively small city, she gets compliments every single week on her car - sometimes 2 or 3 times a week.

Here are a couple that I have seen recently.  The first is at the 2011 Amelia Island Gooding auction (sorry, couldn't figure out hop to flip it over).  The second is a turbo tribute at the start of the 2012 Damn The Torpedoes unsanctioned, out of control "race" here in Georgia.  I believe it was built by a well known builder in the upper Midwest and was a metallic as I recall.  Don't know the colors on either but pretty sure they are not original.
