View Full Version : Buzz bomb blue

Many comments on this board revolve around "resale red". I came across this M-5 pickup (mislabeled as a 1949) that looks like it has been hit with "buzz bomb blue". They got it all, windows, tires, chrome, etc. Still can't hide the dents, though.

Blue wall tires, that's a new one.

There used to be a member in our chapter with a '49 half ton. When he rebuilt the engine, he painted the entire engine the same shade of dark blue as the rest of the truck; spark plugs, wires, everything. [:0]

And I have seen a 'nice looking' non-Stude sitting by the road with fresh paint. Even the two-feet high weeds next to the truck had fresh paint too! Needless to say we kept on ridin'. :D

Whaaa? The grill's bent?

Thanks you guys, I wouldn't have known if it wasn't for you- that quality paint job totally conceals it....[8D]

Not "a new one" Matthew, but older than you. Just yesterday, while clearing out my father's house, I ran across an advertisement for colored wall car tires. I believe that it was a 1960 BF Goodrich ad.

If I recall, many whitewall tires (expecially the later narrow stripe ones) actually were delivered with the whitewall covered in blue that you then scrubbed off.
