Well, if we're going non-original _and_ non British, Porsche made a gorgeous 
light blue called "ice blue."  It's the lightest blue I've ever seen and it 
was on a convertible 911 with a biscuit interior and top, sometime around '83, 
'84.  Beeyootiful!  But then I do have "girl" tastes.  And I hate the Three
