@captjoe06  Hey, very nice looking Performer.

The Plum color is a funky somewhat limited color on Weber kettles in my neck-of-the-woods.   It's more a purpleish maroonish burgundy (Weber Marketing must have come up with Plum terminology ??? ).  I've seen early reds, reds, red fades, and brick reds but none of them look real close to the plum (I'm thinking it's hard to get a digital phone camera in existing light with wonky skies to capture a true color image).  I don't know when Weber stopped making the color  ...  that info is probably in one of the "Statesmen's" head.

Your rig looks like a newer (much newer) Perf frame.  As I recall, they made some brick reds during that period.


I could be wrong but i believe teh red brick ones were exclusive to Ace hardware.  (maybe I dreamt it)
