    Just curious what you guys think is the best color for the Travelall, I've got 3 I like pretty much equally, I'll put them in the order I discovered them.

    Unidentified classic blue

    here's a quick case study of a brown/mica pearl and how it makes the lines of a squarebody "pop"

    If you go with the Corinthian Blue, the interior needs to be done in Genuine Corinthian Leather.......

    Of the colors, I like the blue on the Binder.... and I like the one on Calvin's Buick........

    That's a GM I'd rock..... but with it being a regular cab, I can't fit between the steering wheel and the seat..... I can in a regular cab Ford of that era.... but not a GM......

    GM's didn't have a OEM SC back then. but that's why there's a Blazer bucket seat system in the truck for more "room" also, a smaller steering wheel can be put on.

    I'm not really a blue guy, but you really should add Ford Guardsman Blue, the original color of the 427 Cobra.

    That is gnarly, reminds me of my old 05 C230 similar color.. I was planning to go white but my 10yr old wants blue so I'm doing it for him. Check this cobra with corinthian blue stripes

    Personally, blue on a vehicle needs to be dark and metallic. I really was digging the GM blues on the trucks about 2000.
