Thanks everyone, some cool colors, I do have some custom mixed burgundy I need to make use of, been thinking about trying a fade style paint job, maybe over black? Oh the agony:blink:

Alex, if that's the direction you're thinking, there was a gorgeous car at SEMA this year with a paint job that faded from black on top to cranberry on the bottom. It was subtle and beautiful!052.thumb.jpg.cc5246d0b915b23fe413b007b8a40796.jpg

Sorry, but there was never a more beautiful color for 60's cars than GM Tahitian Turquoise with white vinyl interior, but hey that's just my two cents worth :) 06b.jpg.609b3416f9464dc4d91456e35d474225.jpg

Digging this suggestion. Something like this with white interior would look good on the big Buick.

Nice looking in the photos. It seems to have flecks of different colors. Does it flop depending on the direction you look at it?

Nope, no floppingB) I mixed this paint sometime in early 2000, I put all the left over met. paint into one jar mixed with clear gloss. So in person its so dark that it's almost a black/brown till light hits it.

That sounds like a great kind of happy accident. I love the paint job, looks great. A "parchment" interior with black accents (dash, carpet, parcel shelf) may go very nicely with your custom shade of paint.
