My thoughts exactly, check out Jeff's Cadillac, I believe it's the exact color your looking for.

Any colors in the Black Cherry range look good on "Curvy" cars. It needs the hi lights of them big old fat fenders. It is not a good color to put on a flat car. I had a customer see a '34 Plymouth that I did in 90's Cadillac Black Cherry. The car was stunning. He had an early 70's LeMans. He was dripping over the color. Had to have it. I tried to talk him out of it. The car just didn't get the "Look" that the '34 had. The color gets kind of muddy on big flat surfaces.

I also did a '32 Chevy in the same color. The customer insisted on some pearl in the clear. Again, I suggested no. It gave the car a milky kind of dull look.

When done right on the right car it is a show stopper of a color though. Changes in different light. It is also a very hard color to photograph. It looks flat. It's just one of them in person colors.

Zilla!

No,I've seen Jeff's,his is a Brandywine. What I'm looking for is exactly what Zman is running,where it looks black until it's in the light,then this red pops from nowhere. Roof may go brandywine,or Black Cherry Candy over bases of silver,gold and copper for the patterns and lace. I already bought my black cherry flake(5 ounces because it was cheap for me,and this wi8ll be used on the roof,scallops,dash and interior trim)

Got it, I guess technically Jeff's car is a custom mix of wild cherry over a some sort of gray base.

Yeah,the color of Jeff's Caddy is the color I'm aiming for on the roof,but the body is an actual Black Cherry color over a dark base

Here's a great pic of Jeff's Caddy off of Rikster's fotki page:

This is one version of the color,notice how you can barely make out a red tinge to the black?

This one is a little darker and I think this is the color you might be chasing. Bright Red in direct sun light and almost black in any shaded areas and looks black at night. The main base color was a light charcoal with the flames done in silver flake and highlights in a dark peutter. If you go on my web site take a look at the sleep walker 51 merc it is even darker. We used a colebolt blue pearl base and HOC brandywine. That color never realy poped even in direct sun but it might be what you like.

Can't find any sun pics, though I'll try and see if Rush (the owner) has any.

Harley Davidson had a perfect Brandy Wine Candy in the 80's. It used a dark grey mini flake base with the dark red Candy over top. It was bright red in the sunlight but almost black in the shade.

Still love that Colour.

It's the grey that throws me off then,makes it look almost Brandywine,and that's what I'm aiming for on the roof.The one zman has pics of looks black on the upper coat,then deep cherry in the light,which is what I'm aiming for on the body..

This guy knows paint!

Whenever doing custom paint, please do some test patterns first!
I did a Mustang in a version of black cherry....mixed black bascoat 1/2 and 1/2 with HOK black pearl. Then 4 coats of Candy red over it. It looked black whenever the sun was not out, but came alive in sunlight, or bright streetlights. I thought it was a bit too dark for my liking, but the customer loved it.
Experiment with it. Try it over regular Black Pearl. Or Galaxy Gray, or a mix of the two to get the "darkness" right for you.
Try different colors of red over your base, as well. Regular red would be my first choice, but using wild cherry would give you a hint of purple in the color. Brandywine or burgundy will give your red a slightly different hue.
If you get the darkness you want, but desire a bit more "sparkle", add a tiny bit of micro flake into the first coat or 2 of candy and bury it with 2 more coats. It will give a subtle sparkle to the paint.
If that's too much sparkle, add some of your black pearl to your first couple candy coats..not more than about 5% of paint volume. Pearl is a more subtle sparkle than flake.
Sometimes before I pick a color, I might paint a dozen old thinner cans to get the color and effect right!

They also had a black cherry on the special 95th anniversary models, so '98. Sorry, no photo, but Louie S. just bought a Snap On tool box that was a Harley special edition painted that color and it fits right in with all his black cabinets. It's already loaded with tools and secured in place so I can't get the paint code off the back.

The ex-Harold Olsen Chevy is quite famous. Maybe you can find info on its paint.
