no way i dont care what the paint code says people say its midnight blue lol too funny. i think its a cool combo though i wish it were marty blue instead.



meh, nocturn blue is better  lol    from what i've noticed, its even less of a common color than marty blue. possibly one of the most uncommon colors they came in. i almost never see a nocturn blue T/A except when i go in my garage LOL

i have only seen one nocturn blue with a gold bird in person. and personly in my opinion, i dont like it. i think it kinda clashes. i personally like the blue decals better on nocturn blue. if you want, check out more pics of my car so you can get an idea of what it looks like with that color/decal combination. i think i'm on page 9 of the photo gallery here. under the name Helter80

I say retouch it.  Nobody really appreciates original paint, contrary to what you'd think.  The factory paint jobs were crap plus now it's 30 years old.  Trust me on that. ;)

The factory paint jobs were crap...especially Van Nuys cars.  But I would rather keep the car with the factory paint as long as possible.  I think the look of a well worn paint job is terrific.  It gives the car character.  I saw a Model A collection about 30 years ago.  The guy had a big metal building crammed with Model A's.  Most of them had the original paint.  He liked the look of an old paint job.  I guess that impressed me too.

I think the blue you have look's way nicer than Marty would considering the gold appointments . The gold interior is not my first choice ,but it look's great with that body color .
I can't believe people say don't paint it ?  An awesome T/A like that deserves a new coat of paint . Keep it the original color for sure ,and a full repaint . I like the gold bird more than the blue bird on that dark color to tell you the truth ,but each to his own

Very nice grab Rick.  Try and keep the original paint.  I also think it gives the car character.  It really looks like the car is in great shape.  Good luck with the new ride.
