We bought ours a month ago. Drove it home and it has sat ever since, waiting for spring, when we sell our 2002 Focus wagon and then start driving the new car.
I had to have Performance Blue. Didn't want the leather, but as you know, no choice. But, I still love the color. My 1967 Country Sedan is going to be painted Sonic Blue (is that the same?).
AND SPIDERPIG, those are some of the best pics of that color I have ever seen. The color has a touch of purple that generally just doesn't come through in pictures. But your pictures do. Excellent!
