My car was painted white before I restored it back to it's original blue charcoal, it wasn't the worse color. In fact, it hardly showed the dirt at all.

Me either, but my Vette is Silver, and I love it, it can be covered with Pollen and not show it at all. Black is money with paint jobs, everything shows. That 70 has a really nice gloss to it, nice car.

I've been thinking about my search for a lemans/gto, and one nice thing about painting the outside of the car white is it doens't matter what color the interior is, it will look good. I don't have to restrict myself to either finding a car with a black interior or replacing EVERYTHING to make it black.

If I find a car with a black interior, I'm still leaning toward orbit orange, but if it's blue, red, gold, brown, tan or green, I think white will still work great.

I saw a really nice white 70 GTO in Panama city, they wanted $32K for the car. But, being white with no stripes the car was boring looking, it had a red interior, it had to be the stock combo. The car didn't pop at all.
