Color Stats 2002-2005

Detailed Color Statistics for the 2002 to 2005 have been posted on the color pages of my main website at www.portholeauthority.com.  They are in pdf format so you may download easily and print for your own reference.  The files cover how many made of a particular color, interior and hardtop combination.

Sorry, I do not have the breakdown for wheel styles or transmission shifter style.

March 2009 - Due to increased spam on the blog, I have removed some of the other entries that people may have needed the info on - please check in with Thunderbirdnest.com for that info.
