    Not Buick specific but GM. Before and hopefully after, OEM 2 tone 1946 Oldsmobile scheme. I wish my car was closer to being painted.

    I always thought the GM Firemist series of colors were spectacular, especially for the era (mid '60s-70s).

    Here is Persian Lime Green Firemist on a '74 El Dorado.

    Ember Firemist on a '67

  16. beaner that gold is one of those colors that look awesome when it is new and shiny, but absolutely bad when old and dull.

    always liked the firemist colors!
     
  17. Yep ugly as butt. I bought a '66 Grand prix in about '75 and it took me a week to rub the paint out and bring it back. If you take care of one it will stay pretty nice but if you let it go it will go straight down the tubes.
     
  18. that gm light metallic green [think my cousin vinny] was one of those colors also. we repainted a lot of green camaros and chevelles a different color because the worn green was awful.
