Finally bought an FD! (Pics)

So I picked up a completely stock one owner 94 touring with only 40k on it. Only thing that wasn't original was the paint, it was originally montego blue. I wish they wouldn't have painted it this weird color. I bought it in winter and have since done a fair amount of mods, v-mount, bov, block off plate kit, wheels, tires, coilovers, gauges, pfc, simplified sequential, intakes, compression tube, downpipe, midpipe, cat back, ported wastegate, pulleys, air pump delete, and more I'm sure. Next plan is to change the color. Might vinyl wrap it pearl white. Dream car becoming a reality.

Wow man, congratulations!

I definitely agree about the color very interesting choice by the previous owner.

Yeah thanks! To me the color is terrible, but surprisingly I've met people who love it and don't want me to change it. It's definitely got to go though.

Welcome.
I don't think the color would look as bad with a set of black wheels. Almost like Camo Tan Jeep style.

Yeah if I was in to this sort of thing it would make the color more appropriate.

I like the color, it's different and most importantly not obnoxious. However, it has to be paired with some cool wheels (not the wheels that were posted sorry ) and dropped to even attempt to pull it off. Also the seats need not to be tan (it clashes). Anyway congrats and enjoy the pain haha

The color seems.. almost endearing, like the kind you'd see in the 50's.

Welcome to the forums. I think I'm guilty of liking that color on your car as well, haha. It's unique but not too showy.
Looking forward to seeing more of your car around the forums. Whatever color you wrap it will probably look good, too.
I can never get enough of white FDs.

I kinda dig the color as well. I personally would’ve painted the wheels white though. But nice pickup and build.

I honestly don't know why the lady repainted it. I wished she would've just had the original Montego Blue touched up if it needed it rather than repainting the car. I can only speculate why she had it repainted and why on Earth she picked that color. 💁💁
