Well, we're starting to get somewhere
Good news is I'm waiting right now to hear back from Capital One on auto financing - might be getting a black 5-speed SC300 before the week is out!
BTW, typically the paint code for a car is on the VIN plate on the firewall - might be a different case with Lexus, however. Anyhow, that's the first place to look.
I also wonder if a lot of the colors were actually available, but were VERY rare, like special order deals. I'm sure there's lots of white and red cars out there (for example) - some colors typically sell better than others.
Anyhow, I'll keep working on this
. Thanks for everyone's input!
