            Top one....besides, white on top might help keep the car cooler.
            I see you're in Yuma so that could be a consideration.

                Red over white already looks dated and, somehow, "wrong" to me. White over red (or any other color, for that matter) is relatively timeless. Top.

                        I agree with the others. White top is better in Arizona but I should talk. Mine are Red, Green, and Brown. Hope to see it at Midnight At The Oasis in March

                          "White over red - pilot ahead" & "red over white - fishing tonight" is the easier way of learning stuff when taking the skippers exam...
                          It's looking way coolest with red on top of the white, just to show you what a baaad taste I've got... The car loox lighter!
                          (If you want the sun-heat to be less you should paint it bright yellow, & if you don't believe me, try!)

                              Actually I don't see how you could do either one. You don't have Fins like the '57 Silver Hawk in the top Pic, and you do not have the Mouldings on the Sky Hawk Hardtop.

                              If your Car was originally a Two-Tone, it should have the Roof Paintline Moulding below the rear window though.

                              Air Force Blue Metallic with a Snowcap White roof would be my choice.
