Mysterious Orange/Golden Yellow Paint Color

So, as I said in my introduction, I have a 1979 Chevy Stepside. It's in the middle of being patched up, having new body parts fitted and getting rust reformer sprayed all over before primer. Here's a couple pictures of the truck to give yoiu an idea of what it looks like:



Before the truck is primed, I obviously need to figure out what color paint I'm going to choose. Twice now, I've seen this sweet orange/golden yellow color that changes in different shades of light. I'm not sure if it's candy apple orange or some type of optical paint??? Any help would be appreciated. Here's the color orange I'm talking about:

Any ideas what it is? I also found this blue color in the photo gallery that I like. Anybody know what it is?

I'd make a poll here to let everyone vote on which color they would choose if i knew how (edit: I figured it out...nevermind. Just had to goto the next page!)
