There seems to be less and less of this kind of thing these days.  Are there any shitters still running a car with different coloured panels.

 

I loved the look of C.D.C's Rover:

 

Conelrad.jpg

 

 

But he painted it.

 

 

And I loved the look of FOADS old R18 when it had mis-matched wings, (cant find a pic)............... but he painted it.

 

Post some pics of the cars you've had or seen with  unfashionably opposing panel hues.

If you're going to have a funky car, have it in a funky colour.

Give it ten minutes before there's a picture of a Polo Harlequin.

I remember in about the mid 80s, I was "watching the cars" at my grans house (her house overlooked the A610 junction at Cinderhill and I'd spent hours just watching traffic). I was so mortally offended by a car with mismatched panels I declared it should be "against the law" and people forced to paint them.

Edit: Ha! I was too late!

My replacement front wing is a slightly different shade of silver to the rest of the car - does that count or does it have to be a totally different colour?

Harlequins don't count.  They are contrived and pathetic.  How could a child be so judgemental, cruel, oppressive AND wrong?!

You'll have to take it to the judges panel (lol) for assessment.

The driver's door hinge failed on my Xantia so I changed it for one from the spares car I have in a different shade of red but with added dents and gaffer tape holding the window. Just a temporary measure of course about 18 months ago.

Was running around in this in the early '00s, never did get those black doors painted:

And there's this one of course:

Still like this a year-on from getting it back on the road and in regular use. Certainly won't be this year that it gets sorted. Even when I did attempt to have an odd panel painted to match it doesn't seem to have worked-out.....

The home of one previous owner Japanese cars:

1973 Datsun 1200 B110 2dr; 1980 Laurel 2.4 C230; 1988 Sunny 1.6 LX N13
1992 Camry 2.2GL (definitely just for spares now); 1993 Camry Estate 2.2GL on the road again!!

And a couple of modern Toyotas

Large Japanese cars with different coloured doors or boot/bonnet?

 

No vomiting in the back, that's a £50 charge mate. And if you leg it without paying then you'll get your front door smashed in.
