Darian Blue

**NICE** car, Ian! Thanks for the photo.

I was planning on painting my 1941 Zephyr convertible "project car" Darian Blue. I bought the paint just before Color-Rite stopped doing paint. In the meantime, I was fortunate enough to acquire a black, mostly original, relatively un-molested 1941 Continental convertible. (A car that I have wanted to own ever since I can remember). Since the Zephyr was originally black, I decided that the two would make a nice pair if the Zephyr was black as well.

Fortunately, Tom Overfield's '41 Continental was originally Darian Blue so we made a deal on the paint. I'm glad to know that it went for a good cause and I'm eager to see what it looks like on Tom's car. I'll bet it will be spectacular.

I have Webshots photo albums of the 1941 Zephyr convertible project car at:


and the 1941 Lincoln Continental Cabriolet at:


The '41 Continental was owned by a good family friend in Nebraska in the early 1970's. We lived in California at the time so I never saw the car, but I knew that he had sold it to a doctor in Iowa. It turns out that this is the same car.

It's a small world for these old Lincolns!
