    Looks like 1968 Ford Presidential Blue with a dab of white.

    The first one is a 1957 Porsche Speedster color. Don't know the same but thats where the paint is from if you look at the color chart for those cars. I'm talking about the lowboy. Saw it in Pomona last weekend! :)

    Do you know how many "Blues" there are? Infinite! Find a chunk of something that is the blue you want then take it to WESCO and they will make it for ya. I was told when learning color NOT to give them names. (It influence your perception of the color)

    It looks a LOT like circa 2000 Jaguar Westminster Blue which is non-metallic.

    Hey,

    If you're all '' ga-ga '' over "Washington Blue" as a colour selection watch out!:D Ford used two blues known as " Washington Blue " in the 30's:( The early mix had a green base, the later a black one.
