I Need Your Opinions

By Crazyfast79TA

Filed under: 1979 Pontiac Trans Am (Blackbird)

I have this Pontiac 400 to put in my Trans Am. I went thru this engine in '08 and cleaned it all up and painted it this Cobalt Blue Metallic. I've already caught some flack for this choice. I want you to tell me what color I should make it. Cobalt Blue Metallic or GM Corporate Blue?

I've decided on Pontiac Blue (already bought) engine, painting the intake silver to resemble aluminum and detailing everything under the hood. Going for as original look as possible with a cloned car. It's all stock except for the headers and true duals.

I like the lighter Pontiac Blue but that's just my one opinion. I like the suggestion from SittinLow.

GM Corporate Blue would be my choice, but I like original appearances. Neither will make it run any better.

if you are doing other custom things then you might as well keep it the way you like it. If the rest of the car is staying stock I would go back to the traditional blue. In the end its your car and I say do what makes you happy. If someone doesnt like it they can cnange it after they buy it. Good luck getting it away from you though.

I have always been more of a factory color kinda guy. And to be honest I like the GM color the best...but the choice is yours. What year did pontiac switch from the lighter "pontiac blue" to the corporate blue?? I may be wrong ,but thought the 400's were all Pontiac Blue. And the 403's were corporate blue. I haven't been real sure about that. Maybe someone else out there knows the answer.
