stockies although that would look pretty clean, I'm not really the biggest fan of black, white or silver as the main colour. just do them way too often at work and see them day in/day out lol.

Im growing a bit of a liking for this colour guys..



Just don't know what it would go well with as the bottom colour.

Only problem with a colour like that, is in three years time, it looks really dated. Happens with all the "hero" colours.

Also, isn't that the colour from the release photos?, the actual colour has a lot less depth and shine to it.

What about Voodoo?
Over a darker silver?

EDIT: Just throwing it out there, "Breeze" (Green) from the BF/Early FG's. or "Swift" from the MK2 Falcons.

Yeah stockies I was wondering why some of most of them on google images looked allot more washed out and dull than the pic i posted. I could probably have a play whith it and liven it up though. Hero colours do date quickly I guess but the way it looks after release I dot see many people using it.Voodoo is a nice colour we've painted a kenworth in it for a customer but it was a different variant to the Holden one and looked pretty cool. Tiger mica is on the maybe list but I'd have to play with that too ;)

But that's not the VF hero colour Fantail orange its COMPLETELY different and I doubt you'll get a paint code outta Holden for a promo colour that never made production. The car was on display at the Clipsal 500 before its release in the un-released colour so I guessing its not a media 'release' photo

Yeah this colour is very washed out and not very exiting. The other colour does look very different.
