A Contrast In Car Colours

It's almost expected that many a really old car will be black.

This second one has some purple highlights in it that I like.


While these two have much lighter colours.

  7. Oh I like the #1 and 2 cars. My one brother had a Model T. Ford. I think. He used to have to crank it up at the front to start it.. So now that is going back some. I think I may have been about 12 to recognize what he was doing. Nice cars William. Thanks for sharing.

  8. I'm old enough to remember the original colors. I prefer original color and I don't know why they don't use it. There's nothing wrong with the colors used...they're just not original.

    @Carolann: the oldest car I've ever seen was one from the earliest years of driving.

    @Red: some people go for other colours. I'd prefer blue or black.

  14. I love the purplish color on the classic car. Come to think of it, I never see purple vehicles on the road. Must be really rare!

  16. That 2nd one look very much like my first car - a '37 Chevy. But it was all black and a front bumper among other things...And the springs were fun. You could get a few guys jumping up and down standing on the bumper and the car would start bouncing like it was amidst waves in the ocean. The "good ol' days."

  19. Black with purple highlights, very elegant!

  20. I agree with you - those purple highlights are very nice. "Period correct" is all good and well but if someone's going to put so much work into the restoration why not put in a little personality, too?

    @Janis: thank you!

    @Lowell: ah, the good old days!

    @Denise: I'm enjoying seeing how people react.

    @Ciel: that seems popular today!

    @Beth: I'm hopeless with identifying cars.

    @Marleen: I thought so too.

    @Kay: indeed!

    @Geoff: my parents had for several years a station wagon that was from the 80s.

    @Tomas: hello there!

  24. So many of the really old cars are painted colors that were never used in their era. To me, it ruins the authenticity.

  25. I like the purple highlights.
