He's gonna be really pissed that you spray painted over his license plate! ;)
Does he live in the area? What's the story on the car?

I believe that is portfino blue, an origonal color. Todd Buttrick's car is painted that color. He was at the factory today too I would assume because of the septemberfest.

I dont think it was the same color as Todds. I saw both today. this was much brighter and deeper. It could be that it was under florescent lights and the other was out side.

At the lime rock show, 3 cars had "portfino" blue and they were all different. The flourescent lights don't help either. Paint looks totally different under artificial light.

The story I got was that he bought it as a fund raiser for Cystic Fibrosis and was supposed to give it away and never did. When FFR called him on it he just gave them the car and said he could not do it or something to that effect. So now they are not sure what to do with it because the lawyers told them that if they sell or give away the complete car that they are liable for it if something happens.

Looks like the color I am striving for..!!!!

I am tending towards Alanta Blue (BMW) but this portfino looks like a great choice.. I hate this part of the build!!!!! Urrrgh!
