That mid 60's GTO(main page)

What color is it? Paint code and all. (the car on the top right of the forums main page) I like that color and would be an easy color to paint my car since It's close to being that color anwyay.

Thats the car from Triple X the movie, maybe you could search that. I have a friend with a really cool 65 Catalina lowrider that is a very similar color and it was from a mid 90's GM truck.

Yikes. I think I'll just come up with a simular combo/color on my own, lol.
Sexy car though... Wow. Looks like a black cherry though in your pics, lol.

Yea they say its between purple and blue depending on the angle you look at it as. The picture in the main screen of the forum I think was adjusted and looks more purple. Your right though, It does look like a black cherry in a way. I say you come up with a combo of blue and purple and see what you get. I'm sure you can get something close.

Do a dark argent (silver) base, then spray candy blue over that until it looks like a medium blue, then hit it with candy purple until its the shade you want it. Candy colors are translucent so what is under them makes a big difference. Also how many coats are on it makes a difference, so splotches and stripes are extremely easy to get with candy paint. If you dent a fender or get a big scratch in it, its time to repaint the entire car because you will never be able to match it again.

That is one way to do it. You might be able to color match it if you can get something that color to test.
