Sorry for all these seemingly stupid threads but I'm just a curious fella,lol.

So, which VH SLE shadow tone combo is rarest of them all?
What would be the most desirable?

You see a lot of blue/silvers for example but hardly see Cabernet/silver.

I might have access to a Cabernet red over mercury silver which needs a bit of work, it's also an original 308. Would it be worth restoring?

I think any V8 VH SLE would be worth restoring these days, provided it's a practical undertaking and not going to cost more than the car is worth to you. Any VH SLE is getting rare and the Shadowtones are not a common sight. If you can get your hands on it, go for it.

Not a shadow tone but there was a metalic gun metal grey one with a dark grey interior which looked pretty good, but I have only ever seen it in promo shots (the one near the lighthouse..)

What the hell am I talking about??!!

The one I mean is the black (or really dark grey) over silver with dark grey interior. The one that is pictured on the cover of the owners manual. Never actually seen one apart from on the handbook.

Anyone else seen one, or know the one I mean?
