My #1 favorite model. When this was announced, I was in heaven. I LOVE this model. 
When I was 15, I found a 4dr sedan in these colors. I wanted it desperately but my father wouldn’t allow it. I wasn’t getting a lousy Ford, he said.

Nice car but unlike John, I find that colour somewhat over the top. Maybe if I lived in the warm south instead of cold Canada, I would appreciate it more. I loved yesterday's colour.

Interesting perspective David and one I share.  I like the various coral/pink shades offered by various car companies in the mid to late 50s for the most part; especially when accompanied by a contrasting secondary (2-tone) color.  This Lincoln shade is just a bit too "salmon" colored for my taste however.

I have two of this model. One has black rims and the other body colored. Anyone else have one with body colored rims?

Mine has body-colored rims Bob, but I can't see any previously posted pictures.
