I don't know, but I printed that out last year because it looked so great. I even wasted a little time thinking how I could make a rusty T5 look like that.

Thanks, Mr George, for the nice compliment on the Continental, #54200. Interestingly that I had a hard time identifying its color as well. It turns out to be a Mr Zim mix of colors when he repainted the car 30 years ago. The paint has stood the test of time with some stone chips along the way. Its original color is Pearl Gray. The closest color that I matched to it is an International Harvester color at my local car paint store. I have the mix if you are interested. Turkish Red is beautiful and correct. Do you know the original color of your ‘55 ?? I had the current Reutter Co with its archives make their excellent book of specifics of the car. Well worth the money though might time some time to receive it. Wish you could come to the East Coast Holiday in Sept. Any direct flights to NYC from Malta ?? Thanks again !!
