Talking ready for paint, need help picking color show me

hi folks,i have a problem, i spent the last year rebuilding (frame on)a 1975 vette.anyhow, i am almost ready for paint.it has black carpets,with white seats and dash so, any colors will work.first i thought of resale red, too many around (same with white too)green and yellow are just scarry,i am not an expert body man so black is out. i really like that electric blue that chrysler has out.(is that a hot rod sin??will i go to hot rod hell if i use it??)i was thinking of using that medium blue base coat,adding a deep purple translucent ghost flame that follows the contours of the body, top the flame with diluted pearl. and clear the whole thing.wet sand, polish and voila.my buddy is a (back to factory original)guy,and he thinks the pot we smoked as kids has had some ill effects on me.has anyone come across this combination (or close to it)on the net.if you have a pic please post it.or anything else you think is hot.i need the imput as all my taste is for food.thanks again mikey

Thumbs up

Hey Mike- you've got a great plan- don't let other opinions sway you. If you said-"Hey- I don't know WHAT color to use- HELP!" People can suggest- but with your ideas I think it will be a '*****in' (dated slang!) ride. The ghost flames sound cool- don't let your buddy talk you outta them- (hey- I listen to Rush all the time and MY buddies think I'm weird, but those Canadians know how to rock!!!) get to painting!!
