Looking for pictures from those of you with a black and gold car. Or even just an all gold car.

Trying to find a gold color that I like for my '87. My plan is to paint the entire car black with the hood and trunk painted gold. Kind of my own version of a 1980 442 W-30.

I've done a quick photoshop of what I'm thinking but really need to nail down the gold color:

This is a friends car but mine will look really close to this.

I'm also planning on redoing the paint on my engine so that everything is black to match the body color with the word "Oldsmobile" on my valve covers being painted the gold color that will be used on the outside of the car.

If you have painted your car gold, if you would please include the paint manufacturer and color code if possible.

Thanks!

Yeah. That's kind of what I'm going for. There have been plenty of black and gold Hurst Oldsmobiles from back in the day. I just don't necessarily like the color gold they've had.

The gold on that Mustang isn't bad though.

"Smokey Yunick Camaro" was the first thing to come to mind when I read the thread title
