anyone else notice the trend of older orginal colors on hot rods

Been seeing alot of older orginal colors popping up on high end hot rods and show cars including cruisers,
And to be honest is really refreshing in a world of candy and pearl colors witch are nice dont get me wrong! lol but it really seems to be a new trend going to orginal colrs or the older hues on some of these hot rods really a timeless look and mixed with nice rollers or even nostalgia wheels makes for a reall cool looking car
I've been looking at some colors for my 48 and beleive im leaning towards these older style hues ecs in two tone just wanted to get some input and see what everyone thinks Later George

Makes old guys want to say... "I don't remember them looking that cool."

I for one like to see how the factory would have done it IF...

Dropped and chopped but with stock looking wheels and the same paint and chrome the factory put on it. Just look deeper and see modern drive train, interior and suspension.

I've noticed the same thing, the problem I have with it is a lot of the older colors were milky/muddy looking. I've got a 41 Chev convertible to do later this year and the owner is considering going with a 41 color or one similar. It'll be a singlestage solid color and I just hope we can get something clean and popular without the muddy look. Bob

Why can't you get the original colors mixed in the new technology paint systems?
That should give you the best of all worlds, fabulous depth of color and longevity.

I'd like a gallon of 1947-48 Plymouth Cruiser Maroon, please.

If you leave out the flake and the pearl one can use an intercoat base maker and mix a nice maroon color..spray out a layout to see that the shade is right then go for it..

What I am finding is that I can duplicate a lot of those old colors using HOK materials and leaving out the flake and pearl..
