The blue is my favourite, followed joint by the yellow and the current luminous orange/red colour.

You should try a (metallic) green too, or were trying to get away from the total military look?

i lik3 them all, so its difficult to cast an opinion. as much as i prefer neutral colors for my clothing i find the yellow to be loud and fun to observe. all the other get my vote also. it might have to do with all the contrasting elements, so the truck isn't so mono-tone, but your eye contours each shape quickly.

I like base, non-metallic colours on older vehicles, especially on "utility" vehicles. Like the original colours supplied with old VW's, Porsches, MB.
I also think lighter colours are better suited to warmer climates and dont show the scratches as bad as black, especially metallic black.

Can you imagine a modern, metallic black on any other old classic, like a 356 or 300SL?

Guido.
My wife's 1985 280GE is a very classy, expensive looking azure blue.
Somewhat near the Bavaria blue in a previous thread.
It looks awesome and not hard to keep clean.

needamerc's got it. My wife's 85 280GE is azure blue and it looks awesome.
Classy and rich looking and easy on the eyes.
