Help picking a paint color my for 73 Corvette
 
I am having my 73 Corvette painted right now, and we're getting close to the actual painting part! I originally wanted to go with IOM, but not sure now. I have some black chrome Torq Thrust II wheels to go on after, so I want it to look good with those also. If anyone has any suggestions, let me know! It also (if you can't tell from the pics) has a stinger style hood, and I DO want to keep the stripe down the car! The car is currently a metallic gray, with a black stripe.

I'm also thinking possibly satin black, with a gloss stripe, and maybe a light blue pinstripe?

I think IOM would look awesome and add satin black accents.

I vote for Torch Red...the C5 looked great in that color, I bet a C3 would too. A plus is it will also be on the new C7. So paint it torch red then get a matching C7.
