So as I'm sure we all do in our restorations, I have been agonizing over what color I am going to paint my 70 GTO. Once I finish my quarter panel swap it shouldn't be long before I'm ready to shoot color. At first I was sticking to original 70 GTO colors. Orbit was my top choice for a while. And while it is very unique to the automotive world, it's one of the most recognized colors on a 70 GTO. Then I was leaning towards Atoll Blue. But it seems no one mixes it correctly these days. I've seen Atoll blue GTO's that had a greenish sheen to them, and some that almost looked purple. So I don't wanna gamble with that.Then when I decided that I don't care about what the die hard Poncho boys would say, I started looking at non-factory color options. My stipulations were: Unique (likely never going to see another 70 GTO with that particular color), Mean (one look and the opposing driver ruins his or her upholstery), and Gorgeous at the same time. I think I found a winner. Huntington Blue Pearl. I couldn't find a picture of a single GTO with it (or Pontiac for that matter), so it will be unique, and this Chevelle I found certainly looks gorgeous, but at the same time it looks like it will chew you up and spit you out. The 442 looks great too but the white top and stripes takes the mean factor away in my opinion. With the sharp body lines of a 70 GTO, I think the contrast will really make the color pop. Thoughts? Comments? Criticism?
