    'Burgundy Mist'....
    Image91.jpg
    It's distorted in the above image, would be more like this early 60's Caddy...... car-of-the-month-february-2018.jpg


    OR.......'Seafoam' (or 'Surf') green....

    It has, but in the decade that the model 100 has been made, under three brands no less, it's never been offered in Seafoam or Surf green, and it's kind of a natural finish evolution for the design that it be finished in that color, at least once.....but who knows?

    "Sienna Rose".....I like that name! I've been trying to find the formula codes for that color. I wonder if there is a PMS code for it?

    I like both, but I think if you have to pick, surf green may be the more popular.

    I'm actually hoping that both might be offered simultaneously, but time will tell on that one.

    I painted a custom truck for a guy the same color as that Burgundy Mist only it was called Heather Fire Mist that year.
    It changed color under every different light condition. It was so heavy metallic I had ball bearings in the paint cup to keep it agitated

    Burgundy Mist! Sea Foam is overrated.

    Burgundy Mist, but if you are making two, rather than Sea Foam Green, I want to pitch Willow Mist! Much better partner for Burgundy Mist!

    Turquoise would be my pick over Sea Foam Green
    Brandywine Pearl or Metallic might be nice
    Rose Gold
    That Mint Green Metallic Ford had back in the 90's always looked good to me

    I like the actual burgundy more than the Cadillac one.

    It looks closer to the color I mixed for that Strat refinish :
