    Opinions on this color for my Mustang?

    My Mustang will be going off to the paint booth in a month or so, and I'm quite sure I have finally found the perfect color. I've been looking for a very similar color already, and happened to come across this pic of it actually on a notchback Mustang, which only makes my decision easier.

    Anyway, I feel the need to consult my fellow FTV6 brethren, in aiding me with the final decision. Picture it without the black stripe (all orange), and with black FR500 wheels, and 87+ side rear windows, and dark dark tint.

    Opinions?

    meh.
    Too flashy of a color for such a boxy car, IMHO.
    To me that color belongs on curvy car, like a WS6 TA
    I personally would like your car flat black, 5 star drag rims, murdered out, with maybe a gloss white stripe.

    Too loud for me, still think sonic blue is perfect. Maybe if that orange was darker, I dunno.

    well i guess my opinion is different then the others. i think the color is perfect for the car. I like the black stripe too on the side if you decided to go that route too. i think it works really well with the color.

    I'm always partial to blue but i do really like a nice orange color as well. I say go for that color if you love it.

    I gotta say, I'm quite surprised at the responses I've gotten. I still think this color would look sexy as hell on my car, as I'm looking for a little more "flash".
    I originally thought sonic blue would look amazing, and it does look pretty good, but it just doesn't have that sex appeal factor that I was hoping, and I'm not a huge fan of blue paint with black wheels for some reason.

    I'm having someone do a quick photoshop of my wheels on the above pic, to get a more accurate idea of what it should look like, I'll post that up when it's done.

    Y'all are insane. I spent FOREVER convincing Chad that orange is the right color for the car, and you're trying to push him back to blue But seriously, I think it just might look that flashy cause it's in such a residential, laid back setting. Here's almost the exact same color:
