The black metallic is an interesting choice. I have to say it looks pretty good on that car.

What did you use for the green interior? It comes very close to my eye to the olive green interior GM was using in the early-mid 1970s.

A buddy-o-mine once had a dark blue '73 Caprice that had that same green interior. Lord knows how GM let someone order that combo!
