Question paint my car black or silver


I have a 90' 7-up vert mustang that I'm getting painted next week.
The two colors that I have in mind are a light silver color or black.

I love the look of black but just hate to think that the dirt will show easy, scratches will be more pronounced, etc....

The light silver is an easy color to take care of!

Please keep in mind that I will have a complete black leather interior w/ a black top and chrome cobra 'r' wheels.

Thanks in advance.

If your going to have the underside of the trunk lid, door jambs and engine bay painted go with the silver, otherwise in my opinion I'd stay with black.

The car is currently an emerald green color (7-up edition).

The trunk seal and door jams will get painted. It seems more practical to paint the car silver for a dd... though I think a black painted fox will have more of 'wow' factor (especially with black leather).
Tough choice!

Black does look amazing when it's clean. It's just tough to keep it that way. Mine looks dirty 2 days after I wash it, no matter what I do.

I comes to a decision of which way you want to spend your free time. Paint it black and spend most of your time cleaning the car.

Paint it silver and spend your time cruising.
