Just my $0.02 worth:  There are a very few cars that look good in light 
blue, and many that do not.  When I was little, my father bought a 
Mercedes 300SEL 6.3 which, for those of you who do not know, is a very 
large, very stately, and in 6.3 trim very fast luxury sedan from I think 
the 60s or early 70s.  Anyway, seems the guy who had it was the original 
owner, and his wife would only let him get the hotrod 6.3 model if she 
could choose the color.  She chose powder blue.  It looked ridiculous.  
Dad resprayed the thing less than a week after he bought it.

But that's neither here nor there; I think that the right shade of powder 
blue looks great on an MGA, or a TR3, or a Bugeye.  So there's one more 
"yea" vote from a male.

For an early B, though, and I'm interested to see who agrees with this, I 
think the very best color I have seen is Primrose Yellow (is that right?  
You know, the absolutely magnificent pale yellow that found its way onto 
a few E-Types as well).  Do other people tend to like or dislike this color?
