As an aside, that really is a stunner of a car Rust is non-existent from what I can tell
Fabulous looking car. I'm tempted to bid on it even knowing it's a scam! :D

I don't think I have seen the color on a coupe before, and I love it! It looks like an old Aston Martin color rather quaintly named 'Elephant's Breath Grey'.

Speaking of Astons, about 10 years ago an old DB4 of mine was listed fraudulently on eBay. I had a hell of a time convincing eBay that I wasn't selling my car, especially at 1/10th of its value :rolleyes:

Create a fake account and bid it up to the sky. After you win it would be interesting to see how they try to scam you. The seller says "My account was hacked" yet the auction is still active. If he responded through eBay he has access to the account and auction, which he could then end at any time.

It will be interesting to see how high the bidding goes on this "no reserve" auction.

The eBay account owner can still communicate with a smtp/imap email response without logging in with their user/pass. They will probably call into Ebay when they have the time to get it resolved.

I love that color. I tried looking up info on it, but there isn't a ton of info. Do you know how I could I get a paint code for it? Thanks!

Hi Stephen,
I did find the paint code in my Spies Hecker database. The mix below is in the Spies water base system.
Cheers!

Thank you! When I get to painting my E3, I feel like something a little different than the polaris might be fun..but not a huge difference. I haven't sprayed the water based paint yet, maybe I'll get a quart and play a little first..lol
