I am a sucker for such colors...I was 5 yrs. old in 1955 when such colors became popular in two-tone factory paint jobs and the beauty of it just stuck with me.

Love certain tones of that color too and am old enough to remember it for sure!

Ford really nailed it for me. That M2(??) Ford truck in that very light pastel teal is one of my favorite Ford colors.

I'm definitely a fan of that shade!










I'm enough of a fan of it that I don't just stick to die cast, I even have some wood in that color(MIM 50's Reissue Strat in surf green with mother of toilet seat pickguard added)....

How did you guess? I just finished the restoration of the Tomy Honda Vamose as a tropical beach cruiser last weekend and found the fairly rare
Hubley 1960 Apache and horse trailer at a local toy show this morning.
