    My best guess is the next craze will probably be each panel painted a different color.
    The main body and roof will be painted one color though, and that will be the color that is on the title.
    Sheesh.......

    I always figured that guy, way back when parts were pulled at boneyards decades ago, that had each fender, door, and part of qtrs all different colors, that he had to search hard NOT to find some in the cars original color!!!!! It did make him look like he worked hard to put that car together, patina before anyone called anything patina!!???

        I feel like most cars all tend to look the same these days. Corollas, Civics, Sentras etc.

        Did it seem like this back in the 60s and 70s or is this a new thing?

        So in Georgia, would that be considered the sticks, or the suburbs.

            The real cheap cars (sub-$30K these days!) do all look alike. You need to spend at least $40K these days, and you'll probably get something kind of distinctive. I don't really think this is anything new. The crappy color selection today has been going on for at least 20 years. Most people just don't want bright colors anymore. The car manufacturers only build what people want. However, I was recently looking at new/newish cars, and Subaru Crosstrek drivers must be different. They offer 2 different reds and one of them is very bright, metallic and non-metallic medium blue, Smurf blue, orange, khaki, and a gold/lime green that looks really cool.
