Nice, Charlie! I need to make that trip up there that we discussed a bunch of months ago so we can compare the "browns" on our cars (Cinnamon Frost vs Grecian Gold, with the white vinyl tops.) I'll wait until you get through with that Oklahoma winter weather though.

One thing that I like about Charlie's car is the Cinnamon Frost with Saddle color combination. Just like the 1967 XR-7 that they used for the proof of concept XR7-G.
That one in the promo pic looks more like Grecian Gold to me? But I agree Cinnamon Frost / Saddle is a nice combo. I took some pics of a car with the same color combo way back in 2009 in CA.
