Thursday Twister: Two Tone Paint

Welcome back to another episode of the Thursday Twister, our homegrown quiz show where the whats and whys outnumber the wheres and whose....but who's counting?  Today we are going to build a list of all factory two tone paint jobs, starting with this Toyota Cressida.


We are looking for any factory two-tone paint job (not just a stripe, but major body panels painted in alternate colors), like this second generation Toyota Cressida.

Standard contest rules are as follows: 

1. Only one OEM per comment (be sure to hit the refresh button on your browser before you post in case someone else has posted since you loaded the page).  Do not nest the replies, just reply to the main post -- if you reply to someone elses comment it should be in reference to his comment and not another submission.

2. You can post again, but only after someone else posts another car.  (Rule 2 Abrogated for the summer.)

3. The contest will end in on Sunday, Aug 9, 2015.

4. One submission per make/model.

5. Each car must be for a company that created running/driving cars (no clay model prototypes) and at least two must have been built (no one-offs). 

6. No anonymous submissions -- pick a name with the Name/URL dropdown.

Ready....Set...leaky roof!!

  5. Sheesh, I'm no credit-whore, but not even a tip o' the cap? I have a feeling this will be a rather lengthy twister. ;-)

    One of my favorites, Isuzu Trooper.

  8. I happen to think this is hideous, but here's an example of a two-tone car currently in production and available from dealerships (albeit in low volumes): the Scion tC "Release Series 9.0"

  9. And now for something much more tasteful: the Mercedes-Benz W124 sedan & wagon were available in a variety of two-tone color schemes. My favorite is the wagon in green(s):
