I owned an FK5 (Deep Burnt Orange) Challenger R/T SE, I thought it was a really good looking color... Buttt.... I could drive it down past  the local cruise spot doing a huge smoky burnout & no one would notice... They all see the red Camaro.... I've owned three factory Sublime cars, from a 1/4 mile off you can't not get noticed when driving one.... Plum Crazy looks great up close but from 500 feet it looks like another dark colored car, so you can at least have some level of anonymity.... How much attention do you want?

Honestly, I looked at none of your reply's.  Another burnt orange vote for me.

You know my pick Markp (took 15 months) is toxic orange and like others, lime and purple are awesome, but there are many.

As for burnt orange interior, that may be more complicated vs black and I think black would look good.

So another vote for orange, and black interior.

I had a similar thread and 1/2 the people on this site I needed to stick to the fender tag, well I am not and I am 100% okay with that choice.

Its a major choice.  Take your time.  I am thankful I have stuck with toxic orange for 6 months.  Picking a color was the hardest choice so far.

Good luck.

This is the hardest decision to make because almost every color is nice on a Cuda. It took me a few months to narrow it down to 3. :pullinghair:

Print them out, hang up somewhere, on a wall wherever you spend a lot of time. Then just note mentally which one grabs your eye and you are looking at the most.
It's a tough decision for sure, personally I think the darker colors seem to hide the Cuda's lines.  :2cents:

Not like my opinion matter -  but I also vote for the Dark Burnt Orange....    it is a rich color that you rarely see...     Everyone seems to love in-violet and sublime...    but everyone seems to have cars that color...    like black...     yes - it looks great but for me I like being just a touch different...        If it were my car I would clone a 1970 Dark Burnt Orange, white top, black billboards with custom engine size, and white / black interior...         :ylsuper:

WOW I am surprised how many of you guys like deep burnt orange. My fathers T/A is burnt orange it is now my brothers car. I can't believe how hard it is to pick a color. Inviolet is gorgeous with the black stripes it looks rich and expensive. Limelight is in your face it is bright and racey a look at me color. Deep burnt orange is the plainest of the three but it has class and old school look about it. This is hard because all three colors look incredible but which one do I want to look at till I die is the question.
