Atomic and Daytona Sunset throw off more shade variations than just about any other Corvette colors. I'm not a painter, but I suppose it has to do with the reflection of light off of the metallic flakes. Strange that they discontinued both, and then went to tomato orange that first appeared on the Camaro.
To my eyes, and there's 67 years on them, it looks like the Daytona Sunset Orange was more of the Copper color like back in the early 60's. Atomic Orange is more of an Orange and the pearl/metallic in it gives off the different shades depending on the angle the Sun is shining of the body.

I can't find it right now but there is a difference between DSOM and AO. DSOM has more red in it which I like better as it appears warmer. I'm sure someone will post side by side photos. Just can't find the link.
