My dad had a friend that bought a metallic black Porsche back in the day and he payed for it without even seeing it first. when he got it he hated it because it looked like a black car covered in dust in most light. I don't know if it will look better than black but when a black car is very clean its hard to beat.

I thought so! And I don't like Black on a car or truck or anything that large... I have always been partial to metallic paint.

It has a carbon color undertone to it. Kinda like Carbon Fiber without the weave just the silver/grey-ish metallic in the paint...

Pretty cool IMHO...

I think it will look cool, but it would have to be one heck of a color to beat black. Need to see it in person on the Camaro.

Lime? You mean lame?

I prefer it over both CGM and Black.

It is the color I used for my two tone scheme. The metallic in the RJT flows with the Carbon Flash Metallic better than just a black. From a distance it looks black, until you walk past it, then it really stands out.

I had this color on a BMW, it bothered the hell out of me, always looked like it was dusty.
