    Did you consider painting the trim white? Maybe cutting out the third shade on the car would look good? Keep in mind, the opinions on here are from "Cadillac people", I bet you get a totally different reaction at the track or on the strip. I'm all for originality, especially when you can perform.

    Never thought of white, I'm gonna try it real quick and see the difference.

    Re: Which look do you like?

    That's much better... It's almost like the trim isn't there (almost). And it makes the rims look less atrocious too.

    Yea, the more I look at it, the more I like it. Wish I remembered how to match the color of the car to the trim...on photoshop.

    I like that look. I even like the rims better when the rest of the car is white. makes it look more sedated and less menacing (i.e. like the cadillac is not a fire breathing monster of a hot rod)

    I'd definetly paint that grey trim white. I've always thought on white 90-92 cars, the cladding looks a million times cleaner in white. The factory offered it both ways, gray and white.

    The white trim looks great. How about a white pinstripe on the edge of the wheels? Just under the bead, before the spokes?

    Some of the 3 years there was no white option for the trim. If it was white it was because someone painted it.

    Re: Which look do you like?

    I wanna say there was a white trim option. But I think all white with a little white in the rims would be a nice setup.

    A sneak preview (in 1:24) of what it will look like with white trim:

    With all due respect even with the white trim the black walls and black wheels give the car a "converted to taxi-cab look".

    Re: Which look do you like?

    Thats pretty cool Jay, I've seen that a couple times but never noticed the euro trim. Jay, is that 64 the same color as yours? You have a 64 right? 63? Cbody, I have to say, if I saw a taxi that looked anything close to my caddy, I'd call for a ride everyday. But I do value your opinion though. I'm glad I posted this thread, I would of never thought of the white trim unless someone mentioned it. Thanks for the input
