        We had a technical meeting with our Mercedes Benz club Sat. at a
local body shop that specializes in MBs, Porsches, Lexus, etc.  He mentioned
that there is a new color out that the states hate!  It has no name so the
police will not be able to write down a "'96, dark green Ford etc. " The
color depends on how the light is hiting the surface.  It must appear
somewhat like a laser disc?!  It can be black, blue, red,
green,.......whatever.  He said that Ford will paint their Mustang racers
with this paint this spring.  It costs $750.00/ pint.  Yes, the decimal is
I think I'll just stick with burgundy.........or baby blue.
