Anyone else find this color... vulgar and not really an appetizing color?

I have seen one in person and while I would not order it it was very attractive in the Summer sunlight. It would look very classy for an older man or women that didn't want to be in a high impact color.
Or for Midas himself! ;)

Not really an appealing color to me, but others seem to like it. Hey, that’s why we have choices. Be pretty boring if everyone liked the same thing.

I’ve seen a few of these cars in person. One was a T/A 392 & the other was a Hellcat. Both looked really good. Especially in the light. I however would not get this color for me personally.

Are these by any chance 275/40R20 tires on 9" or 9.5" wheels? I like how they fill-up the wheel wells. Awesome color too.

Gold Rush is a HIC.

It needed to be darker like Amp'd on 2014 Wranglers which reminded me of the classic EL5 Butterscotch color.

I think like smoke show and other odd ball colors they don't do justice in photos, I have not seen a gold rush but I bet it looks amazing with the flake in the sunlight, and similarly my smoke show always looks off in photos but in person the color is perfect to me, but like anything its all personal preference.. hell I love a challenger in any color.

Its an odd color that you have to see 1st hand. Dodge seriously dropped the ball in promoting it, making the blackout package required to purchase and honestly, (seeing it in person), it looks nothing like any pic / rendering supplied by dodge.
Its not a flat mustard color as its often represented, but a beautiful mix of metallic subtile green & gold/ yellow.
Personally, in the sun, its actually really nice and certainly unique.

Vulgar? That is a very strong description! It's not in my top 5 colors, but like all Challengers, it looks good, especially in T/A form. I like the 50th in Gold Rush as well

Gold Rush looks especially sweet after waxing. In sun... :oops: Under night lighting is fabulous as well. No, digital images can't reproduce what you see in-person. It takes-on three different shades, depending on the lighting.

I asked a painter if he could paint the hood to match the rest of the car? He said; "GM offered a similar custom finish back in the 70's. It's a 3 part process that I wouldn't want to attempt. If I were painting the entire car, sure. It's an amazing old-school color, take care of it."

Many photos would look truer to color if the White Balance on your Digital Photos is properly set if nothing else set it to auto.
You can do this on your Phones, and Digital Cameras if you go through the settings...

As for Golds
Gold can be tricky I had two Gold Top Gibson Les Pauls Same Year Same Model the Gold was different one usually gave a odd Greenish Hue the other just Popped.
The Gold Rush Car's have similar results...
