Reminiscent of the beautiful gray and pink Greek marble and, weirder yet, the two tone paint scheme of several 1950’s General Motors automobiles
Here is a sample of the Pteleos marble. (Pteleos Magnisias) the mountain on your right leaving the Pagasetic Gulf from Volos.
Here is a print ad for the 1956 Pontiac. Note the mini-people on the driver’s bench seat. 10 of those people could fit on that front seat from door to door. Makes the car look huge, which it was (but not THAT big).
A product of post war American industrial exuberance where bigger is better (and wider is even better yet). And who knew back then that within 30 years or so those chrome bumpers would be history. Two tone paint jobs were very popular for a while. Not just gray and coral like yesterday’s sunset, but simply black and white, red and white, coral and white, turquoise and white, turquoise and black (!) etc.
Out of the way, munchkin at the wheel!
