78 W72
I am so glad you posted . Ever since I seen that color combo you created,I fell in love with it .
I can't get over how unique it looks with our wheel color ,and the bird color's on black

thanks rainman!  i am very happy with the combo too.  if you remember i had a heck of a time deciding what decals to use when i repainted it.  they are supposed to be gold but that was just too tacky with the red interior in my opinion.  i'm glad i listened to all the people who said "it's your car, do what you want" 

i usually dont like the blue t/a's but yours is an exception,  those pics you posted are great!  the car really pops out at ya!    :o  beautifull background too!

thanks rainman!  i am very happy with the combo too.  if you remember i had a heck of a time deciding what decals to use when i repainted it.  they are supposed to be gold but that was just too tacky with the red interior in my opinion.  i'm glad i listened to all the people who said "it's your car, do what you want"

The red is what does it for me . And not having the usual gold wheels makes it very unique . It amazes me just how well that combo turned out ,and to boot its one of a kind ,not even the factory thought of that combo .
I am not a huge fan of blue either to tell you the truth .
Because I have a black interior ,all options are open for me . I was very tempted to paint mine black and do the same bird ,as copying is the best compliment .I suspect we would have the only 2 with that paint ,wheel and bird combo ,but I feel it should stay blue in order to not start a s#^* storm lol
I have lost count of how many compliments the Marty gets . Its pretty amazing how these cars went from ,hey every one and his brother has one ,to  wow what the hell is that thing !

yeah, i'm surprised the factory didn't offer this combo either, you'd think even in the 70's black/red/silver would have been a popular combo.   they allowed some pretty ugly combos back then!   

i bought the car with the intention of painting it silver, my first t/a in high school was a silver on red 78 w72 t top t/a.  i REALLLY miss that car & absolutely love that color combo (my fav for a t/a) after tons of contenplating what to do, i decided to keep the car black since it was a low mile #'s matching car, i even bought the gold decals...but at the last minute i asked brett if i could exchange the decals for the charcoal/red ones & decided to make it a custom combo that sort of resembled my old silver t/a.  again, i am very happy with the results & like you, i lost count of the compliments i get on it. 

i would not have any problem with you doing the same color on your car, it would be different since you have black interior. if mine was black i would have went with the gold decals, it's the red interior that made me decide against the gold.   FWIW, i would keep your blue if thats the original color,  it is a nice looking combo.

also, my color combo is not unique, i have seen one or 2 others this color but not with the 8" silver snowflakes & they were alot rougher with black interior, they didn't stand out quite like mine does. 

here's a pic of my old silver t/a, one with my x girlfriend, sure do mis her......the car that is!   ;)  ;D

Thanks guy's. I mixed and matched the seats with my originals, I think I am going to get them recovered over the winter if I can get the original material.

I suspected there had to be a few other black T/A owners who put that bird on . But you are the first that I have seen with the silver wheels ,which just looks cool imo .
I agree the red interior helps also ,just adds to the color combo . If I did it ,I agrree it wouldn't quite be the same ,but I could live with it
