    Personally I don't care for that color on early Fords. I do know there are people that like it, but to me any kind of gray on a hot rod just "lays there like a yard dog"

    Although the color gray is commonly associated with cooler, cloudy days, there are both “cool grays” and “warm grays.” Cool grays have more blue undertones, while warm grays are grounded in yellow and brown — similar to “greige,” a combination of gray and beige.

  3. I guess mine is "Tropical Green" although in the right light it almost looks black.

    Think of a guy or gal with a degree in English Lit going to work for one of the big three, gets stuck in a cubicle with a bunch of color swatches and is told to come up with some emotive descriptors for the 1939 product line. Somber colors for somber times. That is a beautiful palette for the zeitgeist of the age.
