Im going to eventually have my 95 Fleetwood repainted, the paint is fading, and lots of scratches under the vinyl roof.

I was thinking all white, two tone white roof/black car. My 94 is already white and I love the color, but two white Fleetwoods?

What about repainting it a dark blue? I love the midnite blow, maybe a cherry black?

What would you say to some more wild colors? Yellow? Orange? Pink?

purple passion.

I would leave it its Orignal color. Then ever jam, under the hood, ETC will match.

I'm kinda partial the midnight blow myself. But, weren't we talkn about painting your car???

Repaintng the car its original color or something close to it would be a bad idea either... Then you wont have to worry about the door jams and such... Maybe the same color but with more metal flake to it...

Another vote for the original color minus the Vinyl roof, maybe with a light blue pinstripe to match the guts.

When I repaint my car I'm already positive I'm going with black. Nothing like a black Cadillac.

Black IS beautiful! Any car looks good in black, but particularly a Caddy.

Looks from another reply like your interior is blue; is that right?

If so, I'd get a blue/black two-tone. The Navy Blue Metallic from the last Camaro is one of my favorite colors. Black on top to blend with 20% tinted windows and a silver or charcoal stripe to split the two colors. At least I'd do that on a Chevy.. it'd still look good on a Fleetwood, I'd think?

If it happens to be gray or tan interior, I'd do a silver or charcoal metallic in a heartbeat. Either way, please ditch the vinyl top.

edit I somehow forgot about all the chrome on the bottom of these things. Guess I'd pull it all off, since I hate the shiny on anything but the wheels.

Cars are a matter of taste and opinion. One of the reasons I bought my Fleetwood is because of the chrome. Something from the past i guess.

If you didn't like the chrome, you bought the Impala or Roadmaster.

The roof is a matter of taste as well. Personally it looks good both ways, it all depends on the setup you have (ie. wheels and mods)

I like the classy look with spoke wheels and white wall tires and all the chrome and glitz you can get.

Before I spent all the money on repainting whole car (inside door jams, truck and what not) I would consider buying the car with the colour you want. If you have modded your car and have lots invested, I would't stray too far from the original colours considering your interior colour.

Again, its a matter of opinion.

Good luck with your decision.

BTW, I am new to this computer stuff and if anyone can give me advise as to how to add photos, it would be greatly appreciated. I would love to post pics of my Caddies.
