Great looking Pagoda, but I may be biased.

Pretty car.  Is it supposed to be the 728 color listed in your signature?

It's probably Tunis- or Sandy-Beige?

Yes, 728, beige gray metallic.  The color changes considerably depending on the light.

This remains my all time favorite exterior color.  It is so quietly elegant and stylish. Well done.  One of the few colors that looks equally good with hubcaps or bundts.

Just finished mine too after a 12 year restoration. 728 beige grey metallic is just beautiful.
