You know Randy, honestly, I don't think there is a "wrong" color, or at least it's real hard. If it's done well, if it's a nice car I honestly like every color. But you sure can make things better with a good color choice!

Here is an interesting example of different colors on the same car. This AMAZING car was in bare metal around the shows for a few years as it was being built. When I saw it painted that green I couldn't believe my eyes, it was NOT the color for that stunning car. I am honestly thinking the original builder sold it, I just don't think that the color would have been the choice of the original builder. But check it out, it's interesting.

Click here for the Rocketeer Studebaker.

I honestly feel it should have been a bright silver being it's the "Rocketeer" and all. The black looks good but all those awesome body mods get lost in black.

Anyway you look at it, it's an awesome car in my opinon.

Brian

I have to agree with you... That car would look better painted silver..

As for my c-cab... I know it would look good with just about any color.... But I want the best color that will make this c-cab pop.. I want it to look like it is plugged into a wall socket... I want it to glow under some lights..... Most of all I want to put something on it that no one would ever want to change it... I know that may be impossible..

HAPPY NEW YEARS EVERYONE !!!!!!

Color makes all the difference in the world.

I picked my new car color (blue) from the showroom lighting. When I went to pick it up, I was looking for my car. I only saw dark blue ones.

Seven years later and I still hate it. Too dark. Although the blue is too dark the same car in black looks great.

Color makes or breaks a car.

I think I have to agree with you and retract my earlier comment on liking any color. I think what I am more thinking about are the "middle of the road" colors and more like on stock cars. Something like a 68 Camaro, any original color on a 68 Camaro is fine by me, as long as it's well done. But I think you are right that outside of that original palette a color most certainly can "make or break" the car! And on an outside the "middle road" car like Randy's C cab again, that color CAN make or break it. Thanks for forcing me to see that. I am so liberal when it comes to colors (I am all about execution) that I have said I don't care about the colors before and probably gave the wrong impression. Like that Rocketeer the color made a HUGE difference.

With Randy's C cab, that Green he has picked out I think would be the best. It will show off every line and detail, as Randy says it will POP.

I like all colors,,, But they have to be on the right car.. The wrong color on a certain car will bring the whole car down... Just like wheels... They will change the look for good or bad... Everything on a car has to be lay-ed out just right, Or you miss the boat... I seen very nice street rods and customs with the wrong wheels,or interior,or even paint,,That just made the car look sick, Then the owner make a few changes and WOW !!! What a difference it made.... Back in 95 when Me and speedy did my Chevy Luv,, We Painted it Hot Licks pink... I thought we was going to be laughed at by everyone... Back in 95 there wasn't any hot pink nothing running around... And we popped out with this wild hot pink Chevy Luv.... I took many awards with that truck...

So planning this out is the hardest part to make sure I nail it just right..

Here's a shot of that hot pink truck..We wanted it to be different..
The shot's of it at a show, That was the World Of Wheels in 1995 I took 1st place in the street machine Class..

Nothing like a C-Cab for the rod runs, allows plenty of room for chairs, coolers, etc. When I do an event, I have no room for a cooler and my folding chair has to be bunged to the rear deck carefully to not mar the paint.

Well at least you will have the room should you decide otherwise. I know I miss not having any storage on my Track-T at the rod runs.
