It is a GREAT colour! A friend sold his voodoo blue 981 spyder a year or so ago and is still kicking himself. My Mexico blue 981 spyder is a keeper. That would sure look nice sitting next to it!

I had a Saratoga top back in the 70's- didn't exactly cool off the interior!! Sold it a few years when cleaning out the attic. Quality was pretty questionable.
