    Another person here who typically doesn't like yellows.... But I really like that color combo with the blacks and the stripe, it looks great!
    Escondido has some jewels... we stopped there on the way to Tucson a couple years ago and bought a Toyhauler RV Trailer. Thus the wonder of the internet and being able to shop online.

    Actually it's Satin Black but I do like the hood blackout treatment and it looks good on all hoods.
    I actually like the GT hoods better

    Not a Ranchero but is yellow GT with hood black.
    Breaks up all that bright yellow

    Umm what?,
    I've been in the Autobody Industry for 36 years, never heard of Sporty Black.

    Flat Black
    Satin Black
    Semi Gloss Black
    Gloss Black, yes
    If I go to paint Supply store and ask for Sporty Black I will get laughed at

    I assume the reserve's a cryptographic clearance state secret?

    Got it. Hopefully you appreciated the joke, and didn't curse me out....

    Now probably isn't the time to sell an old car. It is the time to buy one, though.

    Spring time brings out the buyers... lots of people reading the Craigslist's and FB Market Place adds due to having to sit at home right now. Some getting paid to read your adds... good luck, it'll happen.
