I like the cordovan also.... my problem with (any) red spells HIT ME ! Had a cordovan 97- T-Bird as a "work" car. It was hit 4 times and I hit someone else once with it! The one time (or was it twice) I hit someone there was NO damage tom it at all..... not even chipped paint. Was T-boned by a taxicab in B-more two weeks after I got it.
