I use Inca Gold for 2002 PT Cruiser. (Just google it for online images) It's expensive ($135/pint) but better than anything else I've used.
I found out about it when I met a vehicle on the highway and said to myself, "That was a piano plate that just drove past!" I remained on the lookout and next time I saw a vehicle with that color, I followed it and made a note of the model. It's also on Jeep and Prowler.
Can use either as just the base coat or topped with clearcoat. Two slightly different looks -- both good.

Your other option is to get gold flakes and mix your own. I spray it with mostly thinner and then cover with clearcoat.
