I finally made the color choice for my 50 starlight coupe. This car is a modified but except for the tranny(700r4) i have stayed true to stude. The color choice is laguna teal pearl and is a range rover color. The interior is a light grey(Done by Rene Harger at slick street stuff, he supplied the entire interior as well as modifieing the dash and building a center console to go between the front buckets)As of today we have spent app. 600 hours on body work and minor modifications. The chassis work is done with a stude r4 engine and turner brakes and a dana 44(409 gears). Hope to go to paint soon and have the project completed by mid August.

Bob,
You spent so much time in the car corral at York you didn't see Rene there with his molded one-piece headliner for the '47-'52 Starlights; all Slick Street Stuff.

You aren't kidding. Once freed from the constraint of original color, this is a hard decision. I think it took me 2 years to decide. Luckily body work takes me a long time.

The machanicals were tough but the color choice took me almost a year to decide. Good luck

I can feel your pain Ron. I brought home my Hawk last year, and like you I still am not sure what color it will be. I do know one thing, I've wanted a Packard Hawk for over 30 years - but not a beige one[xx(]
Leaning on two tone blue = correct factory colors of course, but she's being totally redone so I too have time to ponder.
Congrats!!!!!!
