Stunning car and interesting piece, some amazing stuff in that 'garage' (calling that a garage is like calling the Princess Of The Seas a boat!)

id love to have 10% of his money....then id have toys like that too...LOL.. I always wanted a real very late 20s to very early 30s coupe to make a hot rod out of. Would be great to have one and just take it for a ride when having a bad day and make all the troubles go away.

The car is a true classic. Subtle details and the idea this was a "first" in much of the look that lasted for decades. I feel it should be black or a dark color in keeping with the era. Guys back then had neither a ton of money for fancy colors nor wanted police attention.

Multiple ways to look at it, certainly. But if you're showing a true original as a classic exactly the way it was in the era, most just after the war went with black or maybe navy, if they spent much on paint at all.
Today, it makes sense to say it's original and want to show it off in a way to make it known and seen. For that, a bright color makes sense.
