Decided to downsize car payments (trying to prepare for next year when Lady Purple's pension drops in half) so took the 2007 Sebring in along with our 1989 F250 (work truck really) so we found a older vehicle for less money......a 2006 Mustang GT convertible. :)

Talk about walking into the right vehicle! It is tungsten gray (a darker gray with a slight purple tint. I think it looked me up ;).

I hope to add a picture soon.

And it's not even your birthday!! Congratulations!  :D

I just purchased a vehicle yesterday from a retired grandpa who is the original owner.  It's a 1995 Oldsmobile Cutlass Supreme.  Fully loaded.   It came with the CarProof report and a mechanics safety certificate.  It only has 170,000kms because he only drove it to and from work.  It is in mint condition inside and out.  It's so pretty and shiny!

No rust, scratches or glass damage.  I got for $1650.00,  I'm really happy! :D

Excellent news, LoP and M.E.!   :happy:   My news is that I refinanced a new car with no refi charge before the first payment was due.  I hadn't expected to trade my car in yet last month, but I was offered a price and a trade in deal too good not to consider, and it was the only Honda Civic I have ever had that I didn't love.   :(   Since I didn't have a preauthorized loan to dicker with, that's where they had leverage.  So was checking out Navy FCU, decided it was time to join, asked how soon I could take advantage of their car loan refi deal, and right now was a good answer.   :D

It may just be the photo, but I can really see the purple tint :D

^I see it too, but I think really, it's just grey.  That'd be a super customized color if it was that shade of purple...which I haven't ever seen on a car before.

My cousin's body shop repainted on of these (color is tungsten) and the clear coat has a purple tint added. It isn't much, but it gives the car in the right lights a slight hue. They have several paints that have "slight hues" added to their clear coats in order to make their colors a little different than other similar colors. Most use reds or gold additions. GM has one with blue. Clear coats are really a growing art form with many automotive painters. Try looking at many new paint jobs in different lights and angles. You might be surprised at what you see. :)
