Everyone was quite helpful in offering up their opinions on my color choice for the '64 Riviera, so now I need to ask your opinions yet again. This time it is for the 1967 Plymouth Satellite Hemi, which is another on my 2006 wish list. The colors in question are:

Turquoise or Black

I am really attempting to add some "color" to my collection, especially when it comes to my 60s cars, so as to enhance the overall display. Thus my first inclination is to go with the Turquoise. However, I really like the wheels that are on the black car, as they look somewhat sinister!

I welcome your thoughts or opinions; and thanks! :cheers

Black. Did I say black? Because I would go with the black. I think black would be your best choice. . . :giggle The black looks meaner and more purposeful, especially with the dog dish hubcaps. You could get both and swap out wheels, but I'm not sure you'll get the same sinister look out of the turquiose car. . . Just my :my2cents

Ric,
If I am not mistaken, they are different cars. One is a Satellite and the other one is a Belvedere thus different wheels. And about the wheel swap, I think that the black wheels on the black one would incorrect on the turquoise as it would have color matching steel wheels.

But I agree, get them both! :giggle

That is what I thought initially too, Al, but if you look this one has bucket seats, which is what was available on the Satellite and not the Belvedere. Also, I see a badge on the grill of the Satellites that is not present on the Belvedere. Irregardless, I think I am going to go with a color other than black (as I can only afford one! :giggle).

Of course, there is also this one to consider (though it is not the Hemi version):
