Well, I am NOT biased, but I think Yellow would rock :)

Pay no attention to that Yellow car below :)

If those were my only choices I would go bright yellow. You can see my actual preference in my pic.

Despite what some people think, I really love the color of my car. I love Lime Gold!

Hi, SWMBO would say of those two colors go yellow and this time I would have to agree without getting my arm broken
LOL try the new Ford color chrome yellow with a black top should look great John

If you paint it full purple we could change your call-sign to "Barney"!?!

With those two color choices, paint it yellow and put dark purple shelby stripes on it. Or paint it the door tag color...

Thanks,

hi doug2stanger here
today a guy asked why i painted my 68 coupe
blue. i said because i am sick of red. and i really
love the color of blue i have. so as far as your
question goes. you might just really love the dark
purple. go with what you really want. if people dont
like it say. hey man its my car
later also someday i would like to have my wifes
65 coupe painted lime green , like some of those
classic crysler jobs. you know it would be cool

I agree with the others, yellow is the way to go. I would go with the competition yellow though, not springtime or meadowlark yellow.

I have to agree with Kelly on lime green. I like it so well I put it on my 66, even though its a 67 color.
