Sorry but those look terrible. If you move the black up to the peak on the fenders, it would be way better. Just my 2 cents.

Move the black up to just above the roof and it will look better, still.

I give you a thumbs up for effort but that graffiic is terrible...the car looks as much like a Fairlane or something as it does a Nova...first thing I thought was Commodore 64...I flashed back to 1984.....lol

As for the colors I like the Black/Grey also I agree with the post about moving the paint line up to the body line.

ehhh, can't blame microsoft paint, there's only so much you can on that sucker. Here's a link to an old post that has some two tone cars. There's one, Eveyln, that is black on top, thin red line, an silver bottom. I think it's more of what people were talking about or suggesting.

I like it
Like the green cuz its not a shade you see alot.
Also on top you can go anywhere from white to tan so its flexable.

Thumbs up!
