I'm just an uncultured savage, but for me Guards Red or any other variation of red was exactly what I wanted.

Don't get me wrong, I would have taken almost any color, but all other things being equal I'd pay more for red.

Guess I'm a plain donut. I actually sought out white on tan when I picked this one up in November and I didnt have to pay a premium. Do love all the early car colors though and guess Id be willing to pay extra for gulf blue or Irish green on tan to name a couple Im partial to.

I'm just not a huge fan of the Jelly Bean colors. They are unique but they just seem less sporty. The classic white with black appeal to me. Especially in the long hoods. Reminiscent of RS and RSR.

I have thought seriously about converting it back at some point. This car doesn't look too bad...

Yikes, so you restored a Ď69 E to red when it was originally olive? I guess you really like red...

The men(?) here that are fond of those colors have simply found a way to channel their inner princesses - sort of like cross dressing!

^^^ Ummm. That is the most hypocritical statement ever. I've heard stories about your closet.

Luckily I didnít have to pay a premium when I purchased my lime green Carrera back in 2010 as it was a beat driver then painted guards red at the time!

Your TexASS mouf is so dirty, Ron. I like a few colors, but they range into stealth - Meteor, Slate, Silver - only because they blend the car more into the background. But if I could, I would buy a middie, and repaint Salmon. On a narrow car, Salmon is sublime. On a wide-fender car, Salmon would be too much, IMO. I do like NATO and Olive, but only because they are so rare.

Thanks! You should have seen how excited I was the day I went to see the car for the first time, not at all interested in a guards red Carrera, but when I happened to look thru the frayed carpeting I saw that sweet lime green color poking thru. The metal paint code plate confirmed it as well.

Funny how the desirability of colors come and go over the years. This car was a great example of that as we learned going thru the resto project taking the car down to bare metal. This process revealed that it had two other color changes over the years as well, going from originally lime green, then black followed by yellow and finally guards red.

My Gulf Blue 74 had also been white and black. I almost bought a 74 targa that was GR on top of original Light Blue Metallic. I blew that deal and it got away.
