Default Paint opinions for my ride ???

I'm soon going to be painting my coupe and have come up with two ideas.
These pics are not my car but photoshoped to get images of what I have in mind.

One idea is Hot Rod Matte Black with Hugger Orange scallops

Two would be an Off White with Hugger Orange scallops

Both would have Hugger Orange "Steelie" wheels.

Give me your thoughts.....

The black one stands out. The white one is kind of bland.

I'd go a cream white. Would be better than that light gray.

I like arctic white it's blindingly bright and those copper tones will definitely make it look good!

IMHO, the lighter color wash's out the body lines where the darker color brings out the lines that make those body's the classic's they are.
