I had to reformat my drive and lost all of my favorite bookmarks. Does anybody recall the name of the website that has the paint carts for classic cars? I think I came to find out about this website through this classic car town hall, but it's been quite awhile ago.
By the way, I'm surprised nobody chimed in on the post above.
Hope someone can help me out with regard to the paint chart website. Thanks.
Reminds me of the guy who claimed here that his "mildly modified" Chevelle would get into the nines on a good day. When I said that might be stretching things a bit he offered to let me sit in his car and have my picture taken (I'm editing quite a bit). I've always regretted that I didn't say "but I'm not 1/24th scale" and now it's too late.
Thanks for the paint code website. With regard to going for the Cadillac (my preference being 1962-1964), I would if I could find one worth having at an affordable price. However, I've also come to the conclusion that I'd probably be equally happy with a nice '65 Olds 98, '64 Pontiac Bonneville, '66 Buick Electra 225 or Wildcat or a '67 Pontiac Grand Prix (all convertibles, naturally) as well as a few others.
Those are all nice cars, and in some ways better [Turbo 400 trans, etc] than the earlier Cads. Those Buick Electra convertibles are especially nice-probably the closest you can get to a Cad in pure luxury. I would also expand your list to include the 67 Electra, since it had a completely new engine that year, [a 430 in Electras], that was vastly improved over the old "nailhead" design before it.
Otherwise, the 66-67s were much the same-at least in convertible form.
Anyway, glad I saved the paint link for you.
