Took delivery this morning...
« on: September 27, 2022, 05:40:56 PM »
of my 2022 GT500 HE CFTP car.  It is a great car to drive, and though the paint color is not exactly 1967 Brittany Blue, it is close, and in my mind's eye this is what I see......

True, that is what some members called me as I left owning Shelby cars to concentrate on Corvettes and judging, although I still had a Shelby F0150.

When you started posting, I thought you might be the Corvette Mike who owns Corvette Mike's in SoCal.  Then I figured out, by your later posts, that you're not the same person.

Enjoy that new toy. Looks great!

Thanks guys, and Mike Vietro, the real Corvette Mike in SoCal, is a very good friend of mine.  He calls me Tanker Mike, because of my collection, a couple of which he sold for me recently.  He is transporting a '64 1/2 K code to me as we speak.

Here is "80 shades of Blue" Mustangs. Many times the paint formula didn't change and it was just renamed for the next model year. Our first Mustang (1966) was Silver Blue Metallic - looks a lot like the 67 Brittany Blue.
