My first ride 1983 Firebird

So i bout my fire car a couple few months ago and im very excited about it. Its a 1983 fire bird all brown but the hood which is black. 2 small spots of rust, but can be fixed. v8 350 engine. We are currently fixing what has to be fixed on it. Im going to be givin it a new paint job once i get every thing fixed. So what u guys think??

Any seggestions on paint color or anything else are welcome!

I hate to burst your bubble, but while I'm sure you like your car, it is NOT a classic car. It's just an old Firebird like thousands of others.

With the interior color it has you're kind of stuck with going back to the original color if you want something that looks decent or maybe white, black or silver. And don't forget your Rallye wheels in silver or black depending on the car color.

not bad, but like vwhobo said, its just like the thousands of other firebirds out there. IMO, they are played out.

just out of curiousity, when is a car considered a classic? after how many years?
