I just looked in the Model Center after you told me that color, and found that there was a Dark Blue Metallic from 80-82, but it looks like 81 was the only year out of those 3 that had the Bright Blue Metallic.
Maybe I can contact DDL-81 and get some views of his car.
There's an ever slight possibility that it is Dk. Blue Metallic. If it is, then that's the best kept paint and polish I've ever seen after 20 years! My car was originally Dk. Blue Metallic. You can see that color on my car pics before it was painted.
This guy sent me this picture through my email and claimed that it is the original paint and that he is 99% sure the code is the only Bright Blue Metallic. However......... nobody I've ever shown this picture to has seen this two-tone color combo. Interesting huh?
I got that pic from a foreign vette site located at http://www.heartbeatcorvette.nl/heartbeat/index2.htm
I think it is a fellow CAC members page, but I'm not sure of his name.
If you'll go to the 'fotoalbum' and then 'meetings', under 2001 click on "meeting Haarzuilens"
That picture is in the 4th section of pics on that page.
