i dont think

i have ever seen one that color before. it looks like it might have been a mb color though. i thought it might have been a euro model. but it looks like a turbo. the painted hubcaps dont seem right for a 82 300 either.

something doesnt jive to me.

looks like a decent car though.

I saw a sedan that color a while back. At first it looked funny, but it grew on me. It didn't looks so bad.
