  2. are you effing with me? you think I take down paint code info? GTFOH... if you want to know, ask PPG what the paint code on the '54 Chevy 3100 was at the SEMA show in 2012 was. They might be able to find out if you want to buy some paint from them, hell they may bend over backwards to get it for you. You might also look up that truck on google and see if it shows up on anyone elses websites with a better shot of the call board info. Paint code, sheesh, you kill me

    1. It's a secret I'm taking to the grave with me, all those who knew have been silenced forever, their families fear for their lives to even mention the paint code exists.

  4. I think the color is called "Tangerscream". I saw it on another car/truck in one of the car magazines a few years back. I'll never forget it.

    1. Thanks Danny. Now Michael can go on with life, having succeeded in conning the info from you. I was never going to tell, no matter how much I was tortured (since I never knew).

      And so ends a small commentary on the blog, it wasn't getting anywhere, but I thought I'd scored extra points for humor and ingenuity in answering a question I shouldn't have ever been asked

  5. You're cool Jesse. I don't really know for sure that is the real name for the color.That's why I said I "think". But it sure does look like what I have in my memory....The guy also refused to divulge the formula but I always figured if I couldn't find out the codes/formula then I'd try to hit on something that looks really close, 'cause the name was all he gave and thas all I can remember. I think it was a pickup, but I don't even remember how long ago it was or what publication. But I bet a guy could contact peterson publishing and find out. I personally really liked the post. Thank You for the post.

    1. sure thing... great looking truck deserves some free publicity for it's owner. And the PPG booth never disappoints for great vehicles.
      Thanks for the assist with the color name, and you're right, no doubt if a person really wanted to know, they could ask PPG, Petersen, or the truck owner and get the info, and if not, heck, anyone can whip up a custom color that would be an exact match so long as the two vehicles are never side to side.
      I think too many people make too big a deal about all the "one of one" custom this or that. So what? It's a world full of unique things, and that's something they all have in common, to point out the obvious irony
