The paint names changed several times during the 92-99 period, even though they look alike.

Champagne is actually a light bronze/gold color. That can't be right for your car, so go with the Silver. Can you shoot a pic of your RPO label and post it?

Sounds like a cool color, although isn't "shale beige" kinda an oxymoron? Anyways, my parents have a blazer which is "Pewter", same deal...gorgeous color.

yea, that'* what I thought too Jeanie, either that or silvermist. I've seen a handful of those with that Grandprix/am color and I must admit it looks way better on the bonnie.
