So, what do ya think???

So, what do ya guys/girls think?















I had it painted Chrysler Plum Crazy Purple. The original 1970-1971 C7 color code, but with metallic/metaflake added. It's hard to see in the pictures, but it's bad azz looking when you see it in the sun in person! It's kind of like the metallic that was in the original red paint.

By the way, that means I'll need a new purple Dragon logo for my windscreen...Hint, Hint, Rhino!!!

Looks good Mat, haven't seen another one like it.

Do you have to leave so soon? I was just about to poison the tea.

Thanks guys, I appreciate all the comments!

I've just always liked that color on the Chrysler muscle cars, so I figured what the hell and decided to put it on the R1. I never really thought about it being one of the only ones out there with that color on it, but that's kick azz too!

I agree, the metaflake really sets it off. I like the color in general, but by having the metaflake added, it really looks bad azz in the sunlight! The pics really don't do it justice. It's one of those colors that's hard to capture on film. LOL

And I just used my point and shoot for these quick shots. When I get time, I'm going to take it out to a cool location and take out my pro camera equipment and do a real photo shoot with it.

Very nice job

My folks used to have a Durango in an amethyst color. I fell in love with that deep purple
