This is a nice example of a 1951 Traction Avant in a blue and silver two-tone which always looks classy

I do think the two-tone adds a bit of "je ne sais quoi"

Ahh Clarence :-D Yes. He and I have the same eyesight problem...

I was going to say the only Elsa I know is the Ice Queen and I was failing to see the connection unless she's a karate-ka or has eyesight problems. Can't imagine it as her eyes are gorgeous...

Does painting your chevrons orange count as a nice 2-tone?

Has the c5 ever appeared in two-tone?

Probably not, but a bit of artistic photography, and a contrasting colour sumptious interior, makes me think ....yes I can get away with this in the "nice 2-tone thread"

The word "Wow!" springs to mind...

Is this worth a two tone whatsthisthen? Or is it just too easy for French car aficionados?
