THE POWDER BLUE CLUB
The photo above is a CHALLENGE - it was taken at Port Macquarie (NSW) in 2007
- does anybody else have a photo of more Powder Blue cars in a line-up??
This page is devoted to that rare breed of TR - the Powder Blue Sidescreen TR
There may well be other rare colours but ... who is going to be the one to set up the Geranium Red page? Or who is going to admit to owning one??? [apologies to GR owners!]
Well ... we are proud of our Powder Blue cars and it would seem that they are a declining breed. Many are being repainted to those common colours - Red, Black and BRG. Do we really need any more red or BGR cars? We think not!So here are some from around the world with a few words from their owners.
PS - drop me an e-mail and pic if you want to join .. (JPEGs preferred)
