Thanks, Nick!  ;-)

I used to be fluent in all my P6 interior and exterior colors, but I was
permanently messed up when I went to recolor an orangey interior. Okay,
Sandalwood (Toledo Red, Sandalwood, Ebony, Buckskin, Buffalo)? I went to
the Eastwood factory store and they had spray-on vinyl upholstery colors
and the one they called Buckskin was a perfect match for what Rover
called Sandalwood. I haven't been able to keep them straight since. I
also have a pair of deerskin gloves (often called buckskin over here)
that are a similar orange color. I finally got to the point where I just
referred to the two colors as off-white and orangey.

I used to jump all over people for incorrect Rover terminology, before I
hit 50 and mellowed out. A few years ago, there were people on the list
who insisted on calling any form of 3500S a Rover P6BS. This used to
drive me crazy because there already was a Rover sports prototype that
the company called the P6BS, but no one would listen to me. I haven't
seen it now for years, so maybe it has died off. (Please don't start it
up again because I have a very fragile psyche...)
