Of course Jerry was referring to the Blue AC; my comment was that it lives
on and is available through NAPA. I don't know if the specs have changed or
not but Wix hangs their hat on high quality so I doubt that they have
changed it. I can't say for sure and I'm not about to cut open one to
compare it to an AC filter. 

I too purchased three cases of AC PF4s when they went disco back in 2004.
It's kinda odd though, I save the ACs and run the NAPA/Wix 1038s...

Craig---I think jerry was referring to the blue painted filter with the GM
logo and part number on it.  At least that was the last incarnation of the

They were discontinued in 2004.   I bought up about 50 that local AC/Delco
distributors had in their warehouses in NC/SC/TN/VA, while I was working
parts at a Chevrolet Dealer.    I figure in the future some concours folks
might want the blue one for a more stock appearance.
