There's a small sample of what the colour "off shore" looks like @ www.ford.com.au

Also noticed another new maroon looking colour called "Luscious". Named after me obviously. :s6:

Your dealer should have a colour sample of Off Shore Blue, I saw one at my local dealer about a week ago.

I think the one on the right is the replacement for Blueprint and the one on the left is the replacement for Narooma Blue. I think one is called Shockwave.

WHy not go "Lightning Strike" ?
This is the new bright silver that is currently available on the new Fairlane, and is expected to flow down to the Falcon by October. (Yes I have confirmed this with Ford).

Cant go wrong with a metallic silver (or even a gold/sahara metallic), looks great, you can barely see any dirt or road grime, and to top it off has the best resale value !

Which leads me to ask, does anyone know when a gold or champagne metallic colour will come back into the falcon range ?
