opinions on color for 88 fox

well the paint job on the fox has been hurting my eyes long enough. single stage paint is total crap. got a friend of mine who does paint and body work for a living who is willing to give me a pretty good price on doing the job for me. i will do all body work myself so this will probably turn into a winter project for me... kinda early but i'm fighting myself on what color(s) to go with so of course i'll ask the great Evolution for opinions. at this point i'm really thinking i want racing stripes painted on. here are the color combos i'm thinking of:

sonic blue w/silver stripes
triple black w/ torch red racing stripes
triple black w/ white racing stripes (old school)
triple black w/ flat black stripes

gonna make a poll for it, but please any other color combo ideas would be great. i think they would all look nice and just can't decide whats gonna give it a good look for the body style and age. i want something different, yet classy for a classic car. planning to do shows & track runs with the car so i want it to look aggressive as well.

gonna attach some pics of the car as well. all opinions appreciated!

Re: opinions on color for 88 fox

Dont take this as me being a ***. But please tell me you are gonna order some new headlights before the paint. That would be a shame it you had a beautiful fox with some foggy lenses.My vote is the Sonic/silver or this color.....

Re: opinions on color for 88 fox

if i would go black with red i was thinking i would also change the interior color as it all needs to be redone anyway. i was thinking red carpet with black/red cobra seats & black dash and door panels. just not sure if the red of the seats would match the red of the carpet. if not, i would probably do black carpet. or possibly have the current seats recovered with the proper colors. so many ideas.. lol

I would go stripeless so it would look more like a 2011 spin off.If you do it fast enough you will be one of the first.

I have to admit, that fox body is like sex on wheels. Wow, that is an outstanding looking rig you got there, ma'am.
