paint color comparison chart

i am getting ready to paint my 70 gto judge convert. i am having a hard time deciding on the shade of red i want. is there an online comparison chart of the different shades of red side by side so i can compare?i painted my last gto in victory red but it looks too orange in direct sunlight.
i like this one done in viper red but i am not sure.

You don't want to think, not even for one second of picking a color off a computer screen. Find a car the color you like and get the color code, PERIOD. And even then I would buy a pint of the paint and spray it out on a test panel to be sure it is the color you want.
