Colors are very personal for sure!
When I'm restoring I always paint original color, building a street rod, like said some colors just don't get it on certain cars.
Heres a dilemma, I have never had before.
Tonight purchased a 69 SS from original owner that never has had any paint work and been parked in basement for 25 years.
got the car for for a great deal but it was special ordered
with brown/black inside. I'll park this thing in my basement for a while to decide how to paint. This may be the one time a color change is good for value but depends on buyer.
If changed, it will be black--fitting for a camaro.

To me ugly color or not the car was worth more to me because it was unpainted and I knew exactly what I was getting.
