this is my pink coral metallic studebaker lark. this car we bought five years ago in pa. it was broken down and rusted. a basket case. luckily my ase technician husband had the know how to fix it. he did everything- the body work, the inside, the paint. you name it, he did it. i go to cruise ins and car shows. my car is one of a kind custom. it draws attention wherever i go. i had white rabbit fur pelts sewn together to make a luxurious seatcover for the back and the front. very soft and pretty. i added bling, my imagination conjured up one beautiful car. my husband and i were a team working on this car. my ideas and his expertise, created this. the color is a ford color, 90s i believe. i didnt want your run of the mill color. i wanted something to stand out. it shimmers in the sun. when he painted it a couple years ago, and i opened that garage door, i was speechless. it was exactly what i wanted, even better than i dreamed it would be. we looked through several big thick paint chip books- we traveled to buffalo an hour away just to get it, and i found the exact color i wanted out of hundreds of paint chips that we looked at. before he gave me my own classic, i wasnt very interested in cars, now im an avid classic car enthusiast.

    your welcome! yes it does stand out. the color is very pretty, its not a dark pink or medium pink, or a washed out pink. its a pink-with purple intermixed with metallic flakes. have had alot of nice things said about it. i normally am not a pink person, but this pink is pretty nice . kind of a mauve color somewhat.
