I voted BRGreen as most any car looks sweet in green with tan interior; it's just the classic look.

Perhaps I'll be the sole dissenter. I don't like the orange.

Orange blows. I'd rather see it in green than orange.

Go white. Or light grey even. There is something really sexy and confidant about classic cars in white or silver. Particularly with non-ostentatious cars. The light colors just show off the awesomeness, rather than yelling too loud “pay attention to me!”
