    Boss: You are not the first person to make that statement and I haven't been a member long.

    Those two "blue's" both definitely need to be seen in person to REALLY know what they look like. (I know PF but not VB.) And I say that because I've saved dozens of photos of both colors and with few exceptions, I'm regularly "not sure."

    So, being an image nut as well as bored, I ginned this comp up. I tweaked the white balance so the color temperature (time of day) was as similar as I could make it, both outdoors, obviously.

    I'm sure a shot of both colored Mustangs side-by-side would clearly show the difference but with cameras and especially phone cameras, you just never know what sort of color cast you're going to get.

    Anyway, here it is...and, I hear ya. :-)

    Velocity Blue can look aqua at times with a slightly green undertone which I’m not a fan off. It’s also much lighter in the sun.

    I just saw my very first GT 500 in person at the Indy auto show .
    Simply amazing . I had been considering the iconic silver and rapid red but the velocity blue is simply stunning (I beT I would have thought any color was as the car is breathtaking ) .

    I do think the velocity blue is the “one “.
    It has the painted stripes (and CFTP) neither of which I plan on getting or can afford (POOR).
    I think a stripe delete car would be awesome (more of the awesome blue to see ) especially given my experience with the vinyl stripes on my GT 350.
    The black tray is like a “free” stripe to break up the blue, and will match the blue stripes on my GT 350 when I have them side by side .

    ...time to start saving those pennies over the next couple of years—might mean an extra weekend a month moonlighting over the next 2 years but it will be worth it when I buy “my own damn Christmas present “ in Dec 2021.

    Fixed .
    Lol. They got “turned” when I reduced the size as I was not sure I would be able to post the full size photos.
    I am not much of a photographer as you can see.
