        I fell in love with the color scheme that Porsche used on the early
Turbo Carrara (SP).  Dark Blue, with a slightly lighter Blue "Carrara"
script flowing over the rear fender flares. 

        As a younger sprat, I wanted to paint my V6 powered MGB GT in a
similar manner.   Dark Jaguar British Racing Green (almost Black) with
"Draconis Vers*" in lighter green script flowing down the rear fenders.

        Being a habitually broke hobbyist, the car never did get painted and
spent it's life with faded original paint.  Perhaps a good thing.
