Thanks, Hotrod & Joe. Actually, that's part of the reason I started this poll. The previous owner of my car restored it half in the direction of sport and half in the direction of luxury. (Actually, he went in so many different directions, it's hard to tell...) When I finally decide to give up driving it for a while and put the big bucks into it, I've got to go in one direction or the other. Both of you make a good point about how it depends on the look and the purpose. Take another look at Summertime's black on black 68 RS above.
On the other hand there were some 60s muscle cars of various models ordered with BB motors and vinyl tops. I had a buddy in college that had a 71 red BB Chevelle, SS, stripes, and yes, a black vinyl top. Everybody loved that car! It was sort of like an "I want it all" attitude. How else would you explain a BB RS/SS Camaro? Come to think of it, however, my buddy got his one night when he pulled up next to a dog bowl hubcapped, plain jane Camaro. Turned out to be a COPO.
What do the rest of you think???
