Like I said, the color does not photograph well. It usually ends up looking kind of gray. I sent Barney a picture of my NOS Ice Blue tonneau cover, and it looks gray in the picture. In person it's a pale blue. If I could afford one, I'd take a picture with a MacBeth Color Checker and folks could try to dial in the right color themselves.
Yes, really my dad, he does extra work more for the fun of it than anything. He's been in quite a few things. The Scorsese film Hugo, Some of the detective things on TV and quite a few adverts. Less so now because they see his age and shy away, but he's as fit as a fiddle and very active.
I recently bought my wife a nice silver TF soft top, unfortunatly she had a slight bump and decided that she didnt want it any more. So I have silver 2005 TF with only 30k miles that has easy repairable damage to the drivers side front wing, This would be a cheap nice winter project for somebody that appreciates the car. Photos can be sent on request.
This dark blue, black interior car is a reliable daily driver. It has the usual dings in the paint from regular use but I have no hesitation taking this car on a long drive anywhere. It has been well-cared for and garage-kept. It would be a good candidate for restoration of continuing it's run and a daily-use car. The car is in Idaho, two-hours east of Boise. It's priced reasonably at $4500.
