There is an archived thread, but surely more people have painted their cars since.

I found this 2-tone t-top on Facebook.
Don't know who's it is, but looks really good.

Post yours or your favorites you have come across.

Hmm...Why do they call it two "Tone"? That suggests it's two different shades of the same thing (color), when it's usually two completely different colors...

Ok, it's not just my take on it...

Although you are technically correct, the term 'two-tone' has a long automotive history. Back in the '50s, advertisers used it to describe 2 different colors. It flowed off the tongue a lot easier than 'two colors' or 'two paints'. Here is an example: 1957 Mercury Turnpike Cruiser.

Some from back then actually were 2 tones of the same color too.





I swear it wasn't just green too

Damn, that's one ugly car.The real scary thing is... I'm old enough to remember cars of that vintage being daily-driven on the street.

You probably though the cars were cool, even if the colors weren't.

Oh heck, there were plenty of cars from that era that I thought (and still think) were cool... but that 1957 Mercury Turnpike Cruiser pictured above is a special kind of ugly!

Growing up in a GM household, my observations as a kid were that GM had all the good designs - that '58 Pontiac being no exception - and Fords and Chryslers were just inherently ugly because GM already had all the good designs.

Looking back, I like all of them. You could distinguish a Ford from a Buick, from a Chevy, from a Chrysler.....

Today's cars, not so much.

Worst for me was walking out of an ice cream place one day last fall, and seeing a very late model Chevy sedan parked next to a Toyota sedan. Other than embems nearly identical.

Chrysler and Packard were fond of 3 color paint jobs. Most beautiful 50s car I seen on the road was a 58 Dodge convertible that was yellow, black (not the soft top)and white. Packard really liked their corral (pink), white and gray.

It's an age thing, I guess. That Merc is a beauty. Most of the stuff back then was cool. My son has my old 59 Olds and he says he can't stop anywhere without a few lookers wanting to talk about it.

Tell me... what "age" is required to appreciate the "beauty" of that old Merc? I'm 62, and IMO it's ugly as sin.

On the other hand, that old Pontiac Bonneville pictured above looks great!
