Need pics of Gulf Blue RSR's

The title says it all. We are thinking of a Gulf Blue paint scheme for our RSR race car. Show me what you have or can come up with....

thanks

I've loved the 911 with a passion as far back as I can remember and I've always defended them as both an engineering marvel and a work of art. However, I think this color should never be used on a Porsche. It looks like something we would call baby blue, or powder blue. It might as well be pink. I'd be embarrassed to drive it. I know we can have our own opinions, but I'm shedding a tear for it as I'm typing this...... Was that really a factory color?

This might be true, but for the iconic image from my youth of Porsche 917's CLOBBERING the field in every race it entered wearing the blue and orange. In the early seventies, a glimpse of powder blue and orange in your mirror meant it was time to steer to the edge of the track.

That's all fine and dandy but the '76 in my signature was a wedding present for my wife and she loves Gulf blue. So you are right, it may as well be pink.

I love Gulf Blue but it does need to be on the right car. A friend of mine used to have a 1964 Plymouth Valiant convertible in a similar sky blue that just screamed "wuss" but on a sports car, I really like it.

What I'm really getting tired of is silver. Yes, it's a nice colour, yes, it's the official racing colour of Germany but a silver 911 just blends into the masses of silver Camrys, Corollas and Accords and turns the world's finest sports machine into just another example of mediocrity. I can say this, my 75 911S was silver!

Oops! Someone sneaked a Ford in there! Oh well, GT-40, 917... either way you're in good company.
