Curious, why not Pontiac Metallic Blue?, I think that is the prettiest color of any engine I have ever seen.
Orange is Chevy that color IMO is horrid.
Ford, naaaaaaa

Looking to compliment the exterior and interior ..... Silver?

(IMO= In My Opinion)

No offense taken... I am not a fan of the Robin Egg Blue but the Blue metallic is IMO the nicest color I have ever seen especially with the ceramic finish.

Silver will really show the grime but to accent your colors not may other colors that will do that. Love to see pics when its all gussied up.

Hey Tyler, I too love the Pontiac metallic blue - but you know? It's your car and your cash, so paint it any way you think looks good and don't make any apologies for having done so. That's one of the things that puts Pontiac folks a cut above the rest. If I wanted to do everything "the same way everyone else does it", I'd buy a (cough, spit) Chevy.

It would undoubtedly get filthy, but I must suggest that white would look good against your red.

As the others said, the pontiac blue is soooo puss, but if it doesn't light your fire, there's no point in us carrying on about it.
