That's what I'm getting but I'm telling myself that Badlands trim is yellow...if it's looks orange when I get it, the trim will have to go....
I'm thinking Cyber Orange is closer to Tennessee orange than jail jumpsuits, I mean that team in the upstate color.

The rapid red like so many reds these days is a lil too maroon. Would look better on a caddy. The velocity blue while it could be more dynamic like the lightning blue is far better than any other color they are offering.

If you’re asking which colour is better, I’ve have Velocity Blue on my current F150 and have had Race Red and whatever the Rapid Red was called in 2009 - both are winners in my books.

That being said, I like to cycle through the bright colours which is why I‘ve gone CO for my Bronco - though I’m definitely switching to the shiny bright green if that’s the colour offered in MY22 and if my MY21 build date is pushed out to late autumm.
There isn’t a color offered I wouldn’t be happy with. They all look nice. Orange would have been my top choice too if it wasn’t extra and would put me over budget. Green is what I am eyeing if things go badly snd I get pushed

I am down to A51 and Rapid Red. This thread sure does show Rapid Red in a great way! I like the A51, but from reading the posts on here, its going to be way too common.
Well I saw Rapid Red in person yesterday. I liked it for the most part, but didn't love it. I didn't like how it looked pink in some lighting. Still a great color, but I am going to stick with A51.

Man, that Rapid Red has so much depth to it. It's funny because I'm not a red person at all. Its my least liked automotive paint color but it's in the lead by a long ways on my base build. VB is alright but at this point I'd rather go for AMB as it seems to have more depth.

I'm thinking Rapid Red with a white grille and top paired with some retro styled wheels would be:

That sweet sweet Maverick that I miss every single time I sit behind the wheel of a car that doesnt have a 400hp 306 in it is Burnt Orange. In person it would never be mistaken for a red of any hue. I miss that car so much and talk about it every day.

And GT500 wheels and fiberglass Grabber Hood. The last year I had it I worked 2nd shift at a factory. Had a 20 mile or so commute between towns. Was a helluva car to blast down a state route in at 2 am. I also took of the rear exhaust and welded shorty glasspacks to the collectors, very raw!
