    Black Diamond Fleetwood Brougham?

    Now that we've been seeing some pictures of the Black Diamond SRX, has anyone besides me wondered what that color would look like on our Fleetwoods? Any thoughts and/or opinions?

    I don't like any type of a black-metallic, either with gold nor silver metal-flakes. Chrysler was the very first to have it, way back in 1978 on their large cars. I hated it then and I hate it now.
    It makes the car always look dusty. Granted, it looks good on a color chip chart or larger swatch, but on a car - to me (my opinon) it makes the car look like it needs to be dusted. Some things cannot be improved upon. Rolling Stones said it best:
    "Black is Black" ~

    Sandy's right. The metallic blacks do tend to look dusty even when clean. FYI, Cadillac DID have a metallic black years ago (not sure of the year) and it was a real pretty color up close but from a distance it had a dull, dusty look. I know about the color because I painted my lawn tractor with it years ago. It would've been back in the mid 80's and the color was old then. You should've seen it, I even put Cadillac badges on the front and back and painted the wheels gold. I'll have to go look around to see if I ever took a picture of it.

    Yes, we need pictures of that lawn mower, Kevin. I know, tractor.. Cadillac badges? I need to see that..

    Well.. It looks good in pictures, but I can visualize what you're saying.. I still wonder what the Fleetwood Brougham would look like, though. Maybe one day I'll make a $3000.00 mistake!

    My Prelude is what they call "Nighthawk Black Pearl." It has little flecks of blue in it. I hate it up close. Sandy's right. Black should be black.

    Our Z3 and Volvo are REAL black. Those cars are fun to detail. After a glaze and waxing they look outstanding.
