    What color should I paint my block?

    I have a new 408 long block with a FAST intake. What color would look cool in a gray Z28? Im thinking Chevy Orange block with the valve covers and brackets painted black. Is this too old school? Any suggestions would be appreciated.

    if you go old school you must carry the whole theme through. otherwise a nice subtle black will look good

    nah black is too boring, i'd say the orange or that light blue color they used to paint gto blocks.. i guess most classics where that color
