From what I understand it is Midnightmist Metallic Blue (the origional coded color). Most of the Mustang guys I run into seem to agree, but it looks a little light as I remember the Midnightmist looking a bit darker. Having never seen another Midnightmist Mustang in person I really don't know. It seems in all of the pictures I have seen the Midnightmist Blue seems to be a bit darker. Still it could just be the light in those pictures. BTW any NOLA guys here?
No kidding, hunh. I have yet to see that color in person as well, but the paint chip is quite darker. Whatever it is or isn't it looks good though man.

I spotted this 96' taurus color on the same sight, kind simillar to yours as well.

Reminds me of "Pepsi Blue" a popular shade about 10 years or so ago. Sorry Pak, that's not in even close to Viper Blue...
That's OK, no need to be sorry man. Perhaps we just have different definitions of the word VARIATION.

Well, that's just a tad of a stretch on the ole color wheel but considering how different monitors are and the fact that I'm color blind in one eye, you just might be able to sell that to me for a dollar. Come to think of it I do seem to recall in my young hound days having more than one situation where something that was pink had turned blue by the end of the night, so maybe it's not such a stretch after all.

Hello all,
New to this forum, looks like a great one. I have a '68 coupe in which I restored a year ago, but work continues on it, have quite a few projects I am working on this winter. I hope I can contribute to this forum in the future.

Hey Bob, (GT350Clone) do not know if you remember me, we met at CF4, congrats on your magazine article, you do have a great car!
Randy

Yeah, another one converted to the dark side, welcome bud! Now if we can just get Fritz and Chepsk8 to join we will be all set. You should really start off by showing everyone what you sacraficed in order to bring back a couple more cars to the world of the living. (Well almost living, you are in Canada still)

Never mind, I just spotted this other thread. http://forums.bradbarnett.net/index.php?ac...=12977&p=211881

hello,
i am returning to the mustang fold. last year i bought a '73 mach 1 that i am presently modifying to suite my tastes. it is an "H" code car that was aready upgraded with 4V heads when i got it with a mild cam, Edelbrock performer intake and Demon 850 carb. i have swapped the FMX with a toploader and am putting in Hooker super comp headers this week. i have switched out the '73 Mach 1 grill, lower valence, and bumper for '71 pieces. this summer i am going to repaint and switch the stripes to '71-'72 stripes. the car is up on jackstands in the garage and there isn't any room to get any decent pictures of it yet. i should be able to get some in next two weeks.

Howdy Nick! To quote the local Mustang club here in DFW, "Enthusiasm essential, ownership not required!"
