Default Color my Mach........Please!!!!!!!!!

Well the car will be ready for paint the first of next week and I have to make a color choice. I was told that this would be the toughest decision to make and it's proving to be just that. I'm leaning towards a blue of some sort. Help!!!!!!! [&:]

Ugh. That's the color it was. To many other red/black Mach's on this planet. I need a change and want it to stand out, in a good way. I was looking for a very snazzy blue perhaps. I am leaning toward painting the car one solid color as this car will be more of a pro touring machine.

Refer yourself to the 'Grabber' colors of 1971, yellow, orange, blue, green. Stay away from the all too common red, and normal hues of blue. Be bold and different!

Call me crazy but I like the looks of the blue on the 2006 Acura RSX, it's called Vivid Blue Pearl. I saw one in person and it is sharp.

For some reason I think you should go with the 1970 color "Medium Lime Metallic" with the corresponding black matte stripes. You clear coat the Med Lime and satin finish the matte black. Then, and only then will you be "special" lol

I like the yellow one that muggsy suggested or a really glossy black.

How about a silver with blue metal flake or pearl? You may be able to mix up a blue-silver hue. No use limiting yourself to factory colors. The silver Mach's in the '71-'73 body style are stunning. I at least do the Mach stripes on the rockers and hood.

Med lime grn met was my original color, but by the time I got the car in 89', it was blue, primer gray and rust (not the color, actual rust). I really like the emerald green of the 90's honda del sol myself.
