That Roller looks awful in any colour but especially so in brown :twisted:

Positively appalling....

A Peugeot 203 this time in Cabriolet form, purple and cream very nice, (good antidote to the brown roller for you I hope Jim!)

Even an Auto Union 1000 S Coupé 1960 looks good in two tone paint

"For me the French automobiles of the 1920s and 1930s represent the pinnacle of twentieth-century art and design."

Well, never heard of him before but he has a point when you look at examples like this

The top end of the car market certainly doesn't shy away from a bit of two-tone, and isn't afraid to open the brown paint tin from time to time :)

There were three absolutely gorgeous two-tone Nash Metropolitans at the NEC Classic Car Show today...

Shared a stand with another gorgeous car of the era, an Austin Atlantic convertible...

Today proved to me just how I adore orange cars 8-) There were plenty on show.

I reckon a Xantia would look good in orange...

Hardly high end, nor two-tone, but I was interested to see a Focus yesterday in what looked suspiciously like the much-maligned Saluki Bronze. The wheel of fashion completes another revolution!

Is this what "Saluki Bronze" looks like in the rough on a markII Cortina?

Well I think the Nash Metropolitan needs to make an appearance here this time without the assistance of Craig Revell Horwood and Anne Widecombe :)

A nice lemon one

and a little orange one too

My curiosity is going to have to look up "Arizona Gold" now :!:

is this close? ( with the Vinyl roof it almost qualifies as 2-tone for the thread)

All this 2-tone stuff is madness.

Very good Steve :lol: You're well on form tonight!!!

Neil, thanks for the orange Nash and Austin Atlantic :-D Lovely 8-)

I love that MKII Cortina in Bronze with the brown vinyl roof. So 70s and so cool 8-)

I used to have a 1978 (T-plate) bronze Renault 5 in a shade called Marron glacé. It was a deeper bronze than the Cortina

Although it's a Norev model, this was almost the exact car I had. I guess all the real ones dissolved before any pictures of them could be taken :lol:

I really want to see a picture of an orange Xantia in the same shade as that orange Nash :wink:

Jim -

I was about to post up the "seats" from the car you linked to, thinking thet the No-rev was a proper "model" name used on the 5 by Reggie himself.

but no its a literal Model.

Seats look a little hard

In the real car the seats were lovely Neil, as was the ride...
