White isn't white?

Actually it isn't at all.  You should see all the different whites lined up in a paint deck next to each other, some look tan, some yellow, ect. compared to actual white.  And I'm not talking about pearls (tri coats) either.  Seems a little crazy to have so many white options, but I suppose each manufacture want their own exclusive color.  shruggy

I voted blue but have you thought about a nice purple ?   scratchchin  PPG passion purple      

or Aussie GM MORPHEOUS metallic
                                              

 and definitely with a white stripe

        I still stick with my original post    yesnod
Those are some wicked looking purple options, and great suggestions, but purple just doesn't do it for me.  Don't get me wrong, if I had a numbers matching car that was originally purple then it would definately stay plum crazy (now I sound like a purist  smilielol ).  I think purple can look awesome on our cars, it just isn't one that I would choose.   shruggy
Thanks for the suggestion and for including pictures!  2thumbs

that's true , been in body & paint 25 years ,  if you got all the car maunfactiures paint chips out  & variants on each on a given color ,  plus  the color map  , there are  millions of colors to choose from , like Garner7555 said  , factor in  three stage pearls & or with tinted clear coat ,  its endless  , also got to include , making up your own color , just make sure you write down the formula ,  lol  how many grams of each tinter , yesnod

Not to belabor the point but trying to understand.  Wouldn't those other "whites" be off whites?  I thought white and black were the only two pure ones and they technically weren't colors?  One was the complete absence of color and the other was all colors in one or something like that?

Yes, in a sense they are "off white".  And practically all white cars are some variant of off white.  Even black isn't black, park a ford truck next to a GM, both black, the ford has a lot more brown in it.  There are no true plain ol black factory colors hardly. That is what I was referring to when I said I wouldn't use the original white used on chargers, I would use a more "true white" than the factory off white.  yesnod   2thumbs

 depending on what paint company , each one of them have  a base mixing Black & a base mixing white  , as well as many many other tinters  on the mixing scheme , to produce the required color you need  ,
  every paint company's mixing scheme ive used  , for mixing up paint  , the base white , is  real white pure white ,  & all the other whites you mix up on cars are , like what Garner7555 says    , some whites will be  , a blueish , yellowish , grayish , greenish , redish tinge to it ,  compared to the straight pure white of the mixing scheme ,  sames goes for the  Black , the mixing scheme black is black black ,  yesnod Tongue  by the time you mix up a car manufactures paint formula , it could be a blueish , brownish , grayish , yellowish  black when compared to the  mixing black !!

 ive mixed  up paint from  , Standox , ICI /Nexia ,PPG , Sikkens  mixing  schemes  ,  the only one I can remember  was a solid ford black , in sikkens 2k auto cryl  system  , i'm trying to think back 22 years , that had a straight 242 tinter black  ,  then they changed formula or was a nother solid black  with a different paint code , & it had a small amount of a light brown & white in it  , it was  negligible  really so , we never use to bother with it & just use to use black straight off the scheme in sikkens auto cryl . the paint was still a perfect match & would paint edge to edge all the time in those blacks.  white noo always had to mix it  , just to complicate  matters ,  on each  paint manufacture  , there would be  many many different tinters to a complete mixing scheme & what line  solid 2 k , 2 stage for base for base & clear  , water base , & high solid ,  there would be a solid black  , a transparent black  , same for blue   , brown  , white , there are soo soo many tinters  & binders , & aditives that go into a paint formula mix ( depending what one your using )  when I use to mix up these paints  , would be rushing around late in the day to get something painted & would think FFS  ,  the paint i'm trying to mix has 6 or 9 different tinters in it  ,  & would seem to take  hours  mixing  , especially if I had to change a tinter , & the color would be  metallic black or silver , blue , would have  red , burgundy  transparent  brown blue , bit of pearl green , or blue  ,  fine & coarse metallic silver  etc    if your in a hurry or run out between coats , would be annoying especially near the end of the day  RantExplode  lol
 the different tinters that go into all these car manufactures colors , i'm sure there is no real need , lol it just gives the car designer guys something to invent  ,  strangly  each paint company ive used  ,  use  similar color tinters although , use a different combination of them to produce the same  car manufactures  color  shruggy lol

also going off track a bit  , there are only a few solvent  tinter colors with a strong enough pigment to be able to use straight out the tin ,   cant remember all of them & it varies from paint company to the next  ,  switched to waterbase in 2000 , & its a different set of tinters with aditives again !

yeah and they never match, straight blacks I mean.   Most new cars blacks have some sort of tint in them. even when formula says straight black with no toners in them , you take freshly painted black door outside in blinding sun and the factory black looks brown compared with it.

I'll vote for pearl white with red tail stripe and interior.

Cool to see someone live close by. I live in small town Alabama, right beside Phenix City. Which itself is right by the GA line close to halfway down the state. Whenever you get done with your car I'd be down for the power tour cruise. cheers

...and why red is the more expensive of colors...

Reds are typically more expensive for couple reasons . The pigments that are used in a red can be just plain more expensive to produce , also a metallic red usually does not cover very well and will simply require more product ( paint) to complete the job . Hence inflating the cost .

A tri coat or candy effect as mentioned before will also add addition cost for the same reasons , more so it labour for these effects that really bump up the cost !
