I guess I just need to search some pics of white cars online and see what looks best to my eye.

I once had a 1964 220SE coupe in the 1980's. Such beautiful lines! I was out cleaning it one day and I had my 3 year old in the back seat. I noticed she was very quiet. I looked up and she was cutting her teeth on the rear window leather trim! I still kid her about cutting her teeth on a Mercedes-Benz!

That's ridiculously adorable, and a great memory for her to have.
