I need to know where I can get Matador Red paint to repaint my Javelin. Let me know if you have done business with them, and your overall impression of the transaction. Also, links to their web site.

Go to your local shop. Most can mix, depending on what sort of paint you want.
I went to a local auto parts store (CarQuest) and got 86a mixed in 30 minutes for my Jav (single stage, enamel) and all I supplied was the paint color name and the paint code from the door tag. 
Another local shop mixed up bc/cc (after I supplied the forumula to them)
Depending on what you want, I bet you can get it locally. I'd NOT do that over the Internet, and a great many of the best suppliers don't have web sites per se.
Nothing special or magic................
 
I only buy paint over the 'net when I have no other choice.
I bet you can get VERY GOOD, or even great paint locally from any auto parts house that deals with DuPont, PPG, etc.

Just as Home Depot and Lowes can match virtually any home interior color, most good auto paint shops can now also match a car color dead-on with just a sample patch of the original color.

Exactly - if the car can be driven, take it to 'em.
If not, take in a panel that you can remove that shows the proper colour, unfaded.
Some have been known to come to you............

My Buddy painted his 68 AMX Matador Red with white stripes, Anyway, he went to a local paint supplier
and they set him up with BC/CC. As the other guys have said, they can match anything and if you don't have a sample, they can still get the correct mix off the
internet... Have Fun!!! BTW he did the internet thing
about a year ago.
