this is like asking what shade of blue the sky is. There are going to be a million answers and none of them are really correct. The correct answer is to go down to a paint shop, look at chips. Or to go to a dealership and look at cars, but either way, this is a decision that you have to make.

I'd try and find out what the factory, red paint color was for that year and either buy it or duplicate it exactly...

i love the GTO spice red, i will be painting my 67 in that. ALL GM bright red from about the early 90's and up is called bright torch red, i actually looked at the exact paint chip today at work.

98 camaro cayenne red is my favorite. I so regret not ordering that color..

Hyaudai Tiburons (however you spell that crap) in the early 2000's had the brightest red I have seen in a while......
