Here's my 81, repainted about a year and a half ago, tried to match the factory color, Autumn Red Metallic, came up a little lighter, still love the color!

What I thought would always look good is red and silver....picture a '78 Indy Pace car, but in place of the black substitute red. I have an '80 and it is red-on-red, which is not a color combination I really like. Problem the interior is like new....

All Righty Then

Aim above morality. Be not simply good, be good for something, and ask yourself two questions:

1. Have you felt and known joy in your life
2. Have you given joy to someone else ....

Tell everyone about your car!

The color was custom mixed over here so I don't have a code or year for it. The base coat is white 4 coats of color and two clear coats. I sold that 81 to a friend back in Sept, 07.
