Chris, Randy and I discussed this further last night and think it was the color of the house reflecting off the car.

Yeah there'* definatly a differences in black colors. I had a friend who was attempting to paint his SHO and had to try a few different times to get the right black (after the lady at the paint place told him "black is black").

black is black as long as you stay within the manufacture. GM black has a little bit of white in it where ford and toyota have non (the color on those cars is the same, its a "package black" that the paint companies put out for the manufacturers) other companys use it as well....infact i think GM is one of the few that don't. And if your paint is looking brown it is becouse the paint was put on to thin and/or it is a single stage paint and it has been worn thin by polishing or someing like that. that will not happen with base/clear finishes, if your base/clear is brownish then it can only be from the base being to thin....or you just need to wash you car is might just be dirt

you need to put a "u" after the two digit # and a wa before the four digit # and that 990 is missing a number or letter...(the WA# always has 4 digits)

Thats all fine and dandy.... And I know they all have a U in the front.... And a WA.... All I'm trying to do is show that GM has more than Just Black...

If anyone wanted to know the color of their car bad enough, they can look at their RPO and find the correct color...

Let me add I'm sure that GM used a single Black to make many variants....
