What color should I paint my truck

I have a 1985 Ford Ranger that I just started sanding yesterday but I can't decide on a color.
Any ideas

i dont know why, ive always liked that color on certain vehicles. it give a modern touch to the older styles because that color wasnt really around back when they were made. if your not liking that idea, black never fails!

As paint goes I've always like Guardsman Blue:


Or a nicely done two tone, with like grey and white:


It would help to see the truck, and kinda know what direction your going with it. Is it going to be a stock restoration, lifted pavement pounder, pre runner, mud bogger, hot rod, slammed/bagged? All that would kinda change what I thought would look awesome on your truck. Also as others have stated, the I'd take the interior colors into consideration too.
