    I believe the color description was Timberline Turquoise, Mark; not two separate colors. (I never did understand that color name, either; perhaps it is from a Canadian mountain range somewhere!) [:0] BP
    We've got to quit saying, "How stupid can you be?" Too many people are taking it as a challenge.

    Ayn Rand:
    "You can avoid reality, but you cannot avoid the consequences of avoiding reality."

        Studebaker gave a Canadian "angle" to several of the color names for 1966. From the paint chips in my decor folder: Niagara Blue Mist, Artic White, Timberline Turquoise, Midnight Black, Yellowknife Gold, Richelieu Blue, Mount Royal Red, Algonquin Green.

        Niagara Blue is much lighter than the Museum car; Richelieu Blue is very dark, close to black.

            Thanks guys. I'm getting cars in the registry that are listed as Timberline Blue and Timberline Turquoise. I have the build sheet on one that's Timberline Turquoise, so I knew that was a valid color name. I'll go and change the rest.
