A gentleman came by my shop today, said he' heard I messed with Gs and could I give his the once over, its an 88 280 GE with some extras he said.
Bring it in says I and this is what he produced.
Original and classy, 280 GE. Auto, power windows air con heated seats walnut trim recaro seats central locking and original load cover. What a beaut.

Anyone know the code for this paint color? This is the color I have wanted for years. Given the code, I think it could be recreated locally.

Wout,

Now I hope you are not trying to cover up that wonderful blue paint on that 280GE! I had a neighbor who painted his house that blue color to protest some local restrictions on his landscaping. It sure gets your attention.

--------------------------------------
Its a small town in northern MD. I have a very close buddy living there and I visit there once twice a year. My buddy is ex military and we met 45 years ago and have been buddies ever since, he just retired from working at the Veterans hospital in Baltimore.I Used to live in Havre de Grace when I worked on Aberdeen Proving Grounds trying to sell the Alvis Stalwart to the USMC on behalf of Elizabeth 2. Ahhh those were the days, I 95S to Baltimore for a night out or I 95N to New York for an even better night out with the occasional cultural trip Philadelphia.
