    Yep! I love brown too. About ten years ago, I got personalized plates for my '50 Fleetline that read 'BKDBEAN' for when I eventually paint it a color I have stuck in my head...kindof a reddish brown metalic. I still haven't painted the car, and now brown has gotten so popular. I don't know if that's good or bad.

    In the latest (Oct. 2011) Street Rodder, there's a really nice '50 Ford shoebox that's painted in a Glasurit color called 'Brandywine Copper Mica'. That just might be my color! It's beautiful!

    Goggle a little outfit called U.P.S. Just jivin ya, wow the two examples of the Cad and Chevy are super sweet. I hear what pov flats says about stay around brown for resale on ordinary drivers. I have a thing about earth tone cars, seeing them as dangerous as they blend into backgrounds to easy. I have had them come out of nowhere on some backgrounds and scare the daylites outta me. Must be an old age deal? Good luck with your quest. ~sololobo~
