Default Old Pontiac blue

Just wondering if anyone like me has an affinity for the early 60's Pontiac engine color. To me it was simple, not gaudy, appealing and unique to Pontiac. I keep buying different Pontiac blues but just dont seem to get the right shade. Maybe because it was a flat paint or different type of paint. I dont know ... my 444 creation is almost ready for paint and was thinking if I could find the right shade I would have a half gallon of it mixed up so I have some for the next motors I do, or at least have the correct mix so I can have it made when I need it. Maybe that cant be done with high temp paint?

I always liked the early seventies shade better.. I spray 1200 degree sliver as a base then the color over top..
