Hot Car Colors

The 40th annual MSRS Back To The Fifties Car Show is going on this weekend.  I met my brother and SIL at the State Fairgrounds where they are showing their car (more on that later). My plan was to photograph mostly close-ups of colors and patterns:

Chevy Impalas in the color of your choice...

"Great for picking up chicks"? (below)

A lineup of pastel Thunderbirds...

and some red and white

I've always wanted a wood-paneled car

But maybe a little newer - like the 50's

And here's the black 1961 Ford Galaxie Starliner that my brother owns.  Dad bought it originally and David bought it from Mom, who kept it after Dad died.

Another owner stopped by with his red Starliner - same year.

It was fun to see because it's rare to see another one.

And the 1965 T-bird below is close to the same color as the one I owned (my first car).

I really like how you did the pattern squares at the top -- very cool! I remember your turq T-bird, too :)
