    So here's my approach: Find a GM blue from the late sixties, early 70's that goes well with white (hard top/soft top).

    There is a mid-60's vette light blue that looks good. I think it's called Nassau Blue. Look at Nassau Blue

    One of the original 67-72 blue paints looked real sharp with the white. I'd go that route, no metallics, no flake, no clear coats to make it look like the paint is of the correct vintage, if not an exact color match. But that's just what I like for first gens .. make it as mild or wild as you want, just make sure you're happy with it.

    Nassau blue white top?? Pulled this one from my blazer pic archives. I think it's a great looking combo.

    I've been asking myself the same question - but keep going back to baby poop yellow -- I'm planning to lay on another coat here in a month or two.
