That is highly polished gunmetal or what looks to be viper steel blue.

Re: Has anyone seen a Dark Bright Teal...

I found an article on TGO with this owner and he said the car was freshly painted the u18 which is Dark Bright Teal... He said the color name was Dark Gray Green though? However this is not the same as the more comon Firebird of this color which we have had 3 of in our local club before.

Like so....

Re: Has anyone seen a Dark Bright Teal...

Jade gray metallic is the name of that color. I think it was a 92 only option.

Re: Has anyone seen a Dark Bright Teal...

According to paint suppliers it was called Dark Bright Teal, even Franky in the RPO's listed it as Dark Bright Teal..... We have painted one of those cars, granted that the GM name may be different than the F-Body specific name. Wheras they use the same paint and code. But has anyone seen the GTA in this color? They should be just as rare as a Jamaica Yellow but everyone has seen those. I would love to see one

My TTA is painted GM's Fusion Orange, however it is the same used on Hummers, GTO's and CTS's however uses a different name in each model...

I am a freaking idiot.... My cousin had a 91 GTA painted this color. I totally spaced it out untill I saw this picture and said "Hey that looks like Brians old car" forehead slap. Granted his was NOT a originally that color and poorly painted. His was originally Medium Green and they did not put any emblems back onto it.

Re: Has anyone seen a Dark Bright Teal...

I dunno, I found that through a few links...

The angle it is shot in actually looks like mine, and mine is Medium Green.... I have seen it look like that in certain angles...

Re: Has anyone seen a Dark Bright Teal...

Yes, that is the correct color and that car belongs or belonged to Alex from the old TransAmGTA.com website....an early contemporary of The Source Page. The last I heard the car had been totaled due to damage from a rockslide or something similar, and he was unsure what he was going to do with it. It is the only GTA I have ever seen in that color.

I have been to that web site. There was a Flame Red GTA on there that had paddle mirror and some rare features on the car or something. I though there was a Teal GTA on ebay that was being sold?
