Yes, those are very sharp. It'* actually called Navy Blue Metallic, btw!
OH! Is it? I don't know where I got the Midnight blue thing, probably made it up. Thanks for correcting me, now I know EXACTLY what to ask for when I go to find one.
Yup, np. Search ls1tech.com in the for sale section with a keyword of "NBM". You'll get tons of hits!!

NBM and Sunset Orange are the two most desirable colors on a 3rd generation f-body! You've got very good taste!
And expensive tastes, too (I actually did earn the nickname Princess)!! Thanks for the info, I'll look it up. I'm going to have one of these cars-even if it is ten years down the road.

Having achievable dreams is the way to go.

Unless your a sports star or a drug dealer your never going to own a Ferrari or a Lambo. Aren't tune ups for those cars like $15,000, I read somewhere the front bumpers cost as much as a normal car.

A radio? It'* an F1 car for the road.

If you've ever hear that V12 sing, you wouldn't want a radio either.

Testarossas are nice. In my opinion its the nicest looking of all the exotic cars. Look up the insurance and upkeep on one of those. Boo

Great minds think alike. I have wanted one of these cars since I first saw one. Although if I get a T/A, I want it to be black.

Oh. Me too. I actually got to ride around in one a few years back...and I was totally in love (I have pics and everything-and no, I'm not posting them). That one was Navy Metallic Blue, and I think that'* why I'm stuck on that color. Only thing I wasn't so thrilled about with that car was the T-top.

The t-tops are like a T/A tradition though. My dad'* Grand National had them, and they looked sweet when they were off.

Indeed. The brake pads cost $6,000 per set and the brake rotors cost $24,000 per set.

On top of that, the Shell motor oil they use costs $60 per quart, of which the engine needs 12.5 quarts. Decide not to use it? You're out a warranty if your engine blows - $200,000 replacement.
