Default Just When You Think You Have It Made..

Hi Bill,

The only thing about painting the car turquoise is that I am taking it one further step away from it being original. But I remember what Alexander told me... "Keep it original if you want to, or improve it, make it safer, and make it yours since you paid for it"... It will probably cost me a lot more also to have it painted turquoise. Whereas, if I keep it Casino Cream, it might be cheaper. If I decide on turquoise, I will probably two-tone it, with a darker turquoise on the top, hood, trunk and forward part of the car, with a lighter turquoise from the curve on the door back. The interior I would probably make match the exterior color.. If I do that, I am probably going to have to change her name also... As for white, yes white and turquoise set each other off well, as evidenced in Penelope!

I might go with something like this. The darker color Indian Turquoise, with the lighter color Aquamarine.. Sorry Bob, I used your car to color! And I did not do a very good job of coloring, but it let me see what it might look like.

Hi Ray,
Good to hear you're getting 'Rose back tomorrow. Turqoise Blue is a beautiful color. I had a Ford Transit Van back in the mid seventees whilst residing in Canada. I had that painted Turqoise Blue & it looked majic. I know we can't compare T.Birds to the Van but it's a great color. Should you go that direction I reckon Turqoise blue & White interior & a Turqoise Blue Body & a White Top. I've seen a few two-tone bottom but to my opinion they don't look overly appealing. But then again it's your party & you'll do what you want to.

Chris....From the Land of OZ.
