So my '94 DGGM 6-speed car is looking ragged these days.  8 Cleveland winters.  It needs a repaint.  

I'm thinking of going silver over black with some patina work.  Same for the wheels.  Thoughts?  Too Hot Roddish?

Pic below is a scribble of what I'm thinking.  It'd be a subtle effect.  Note that I do NOT plan on doing this to the car pictured.

Am I on drugs or would this look good? Or... am I on drugs AND would this look good?

DGGM just looks too good. Patina might be cool on a plain white woodie though.

I dunno... I'm kinda stuck on the black/gray thing.  Maybe some kinda two tone or custom flames?  I like this Roady:

My '91 caprice wagon sorta has a patina look. The clearcoat has partially peeled on the hood and top.
Plus the lower rear quarter has some wrinkles in it.

nayyyyy......patina looks cool on a 72 or older truck....not a 90's wagon, just looks old and abused.

You're going to get a lot of different opinions on this since "patina" is one of those things that elicits strong reactions on either side. For me, there are very few vehicles where I think it 'works'. The ratrod / steampunk scene is one of them, and the other is in the uber-rare unrestored classic market like
the Benz gullwing that was stored for the past 30 years.

For the rest of them, especially where the patina is faked, I think it falls flat. DGGM is a killer color - I'd just do it right and respray it.

I second what was said here. Hands-down do it right. DGGM is a great color!

The flames will instantly date the car and everyone will assume you're 60 years old.

I'd vote no to both, personally.

I agree with Nick. Don't do the neighbors wife, or the patina.
