 Now we all know you wouldn't run that on a bed of salt. That is one good looking car though. What is that colour?

That is a pretty color.  I'm doing the VOAB in that color

Thanks Steve, I'd rather not you think of me as 'sweet' anyway... 

I wouldn't be too sure about 'not driving on salt' though.
We're pretty serious overhere when it comes to battling frosted roads ya know, spraying salt on the roads everywhere. And yesterday was no different then normal... ;)

Looks just like NY... we have a "clear roads" policy here,  which means cars rust out in 5 years.

The color is a 90's Chrysler color.
I could look up the paintcode if desired.
It's something like "Light Turquoise Blue" I recall.

You know, when the car was at the mercy of the paintshop for some 2 years, I had planned on having it painted a deep metallic Wine Red color. This would set off the chrome nicely on the car I thought. I had even made some simple photoshops with the car in this color.
But then the day arrived the car was ready for paint. The painter said they were going to order the paint today, and wanted me to confirm the color I had in mind.
So they handed me a huge paintsample-book and I dug in. But I didn't stop at the 'wine red' I had in mind. I went on looking at the other colors and when this Turquoise color showed up on one of the pages I changed my plan rightaway. The painter was stunned of this sudden turnover but ordered the paint that afternoon.

I don't think I made the wrong decission for one moment, even though I know the Wine Red I had in mind would've looked good aswell on the car.

You made a great choice.
Wouldn't have faulted you for the red either.

I really like that color as well... Olds had an almost identical color around '68/69 that looks great on a Cutlass/442 imho.
