    So basically your asking if people are going to point and laugh at you after you paint it that color ?

    The answer is ------> I have seen a few woman driving trucks like that :haha: :haha:

    ive got a baby/sky blue on mine and got a few comments about it being "pretty" so i painted a black stripe along the bottom edge of the truck and up and over the wheels wells and it really looks sharp!

    baby bloo...

    When I repainted my Chevy Van with Ford tractor blue,which is more like a sky blue color from its original "solid blue",a few of my female friends loved the color--its between sky blue and tourquiose....my favorite color is blue,but I have had many other colors on my vehicles--black,red,yellow,orange,green,and a few "neaopolitan" primer spotted rigs!..

    I'm not sure if blue is considered a "fairy" color,like pink would be--I would not drive a purple vehicle around here,or a pink one either(unless you work for Mary Kay Cosmetics!)..I'd say other than those 2 colors,nobody will claim you are light in your loafers...unless you have a rainbow bumper sticker on it... :rolleyes: :haha:

    Not long after I painted my van,I took it to a local library to do some research and use their computer....when I came out,someone wrote in the dust on the back door " Its a BOY!!".. :haha: :haha: ---a few days later I saw a purple van similar to mine--and someone had written "BARNEY" above the bumper in the dirt on the back doors.... :crazy:

    lol at boy and barney

    heh

    baby/sky blue is great i love the color and ive had a billion different vehicles that color even my 82 trans am was originally silver blue metallic which is a light sky blue color

    had a 77 nova coupe the same color,
    and an 83 caprice and a few 67-72 trucks, late 80s-90 cavaliers, and so forth, and even my 71 dually was a medium/dark sky(smurf) blue originally so it wil be painted sky blue too just like the trans am will be


    good color,

    chick magnet color

    more plusses than negatives

    never hear any negative comments about the color around here, ever

    my eyes are blue, i never hear "oh your eyes are wuss colored" comments,

    so i dunno :confused:

    heh that smiley is light blue too..


    good luck

    If you build it badass enough, people will tremble in fear no matter what the color. Make it how YOU want it, don't worry about what other people think.

    I had a baby blue 1960 dodge dart which was pretty cool. I have always thought baby blue cars were pretty pimp. One of my best friends has a light blue '73 bronco, and every girl I know that has seen it says it is their dream car. That being said, I personally wouldn't consider doing that to my blazer, but to each his own.
