    What color should I paint my new 95

    So what do you guys think, my new to me chameleon 95 SC needs a paint job badly the sun ate the roof hood and trunk.

    Chameleon wont problably happen because its so damn expensive but just to see if anybody picks it.

    I dont know if pearl white is expensive?

    I voted chameleon just because you have a rare one-year only color of a rare car. Plus this way you wouldn't have to respray under the hood and in the jambs. I know the paint is expensive, but I didn't think it cost that much. If you PM me the paint code, I can see what I can get it for, and maybe save you some money, or convince you to keep it that color.

    I agree. I'd keep it Chameleon if it were mine.

    Yes, the Mustang Cobra got a very different paint color. Two versions, actually. They both look very cool in person, but I like the newer one even better.

    The Ford Probe got some kind of chameleon paint job too ... I think I have seen it in two different shades, one a greenish and one pinkish.
    Hmm, I found a couple of photos ... I think there was still one other color, but I don't recall.

    The Thunderbird came in a couple of other unusual colors ... Pearl White and Clear Crystal Blue Frost Metallic. My brother had an LX in the latter color, which was basically a very light blue with a slight flip-flop to purplish in off lighting.
    God bless!!!

    1990 SC auto ... red outside, gray cloth inside ... ~180,000 miles (and climbing) ... driven daily!

    A rare, last-year-production car in a rare color. Are you kidding? Keep it the ORIGINAL color; Save up and do it right. Plus you'll save someone in the future from having to undo a mess.

    Likely, a color change would cost more than the correct color, once you factor in all the jambs, underhood area, etc. You WERE going to jamb it out, weren't you?...
