    I didn't get a chance to bust out the camera. So another cell phone pic is all I have. The color shows up really odd in pictures. It's certainly not B5 but it's nice. It'll look sweet with my orange magnum 360 in it.

      As mentioned, when I went to paint store for paint, they asked what year B-5, and showed me a couple diff shades, all diff years. Nothing like the OP's.

      That is the best pic I have of it in the sun. I ended up having to pull the engine back out due to blowing a headgasket and damaging a cylinder. So I spent my paint money on rebuilding the engine. I bolted the front end back on it and have been driving the wheels off of it. The color has grown on me but it isn't B5, I'm having too much fun driving it to care.

        Looks much better in the sun, actually it even looks blue now. Not grey-ish off blue in hue.

        If you ever see B3, B5, B7 together, you will easily recognize them. B3 is of course, lighter, but has some silver to it. B7 is pretty dark. They will look differently if BC/CC or enamel/urethane also. Chevy back them had a md blue mch like b5, popular colors along with all the shades of green.
