The first pink vehicle here in the garage is a 1983 GMC G-Series Van. In spite of the age of the vehicle, there's a mobile phone and radio. The interior has white bucket seats and a custom gun rack. This van definitely does not look good in pink. What colors do we use to make it look like it did on the TV show, detective?
Blue and lime green with orange stars
Red with blue headlights
White with a black pinstripe
Black and grey with a red diagonal stripe
Next up in our line of TV cars is a 1969 Dodge Charger sedan. The doors have been welded shut. It's got 10-spoke hubcaps and a trunk full of sandbags. Looks like it's been through a real rough time and probably has made a whole lot of big jumps. Pink just doesn't do it justice. What colors should we choose for the correct paint job?
White with chrome trim
Silver with purple pinstripes
Baby blue with an American flag on top
Orange with a black "01" on the door
Next up is a Volvo P1800 sedan, mid 1960s issue. License place is ST1. I found a stack of small cards in the back drawn with stick figures wearing tiny halos. Let's get rid of this pink, detective, and put it back to the color from the TV show. What color should we take off the shelf?
"Car 54 Carnation Pink"
"Bond Baby Blue"
OK, another famous TV van coming up next. The make and model aren't like any I've seen, but based on those lines it's definitely a vintage vehicle. After rummaging through the back seat, I've found some useful clues, though! Let's see here: dog treats, a magnifying glass, and stack of rubber face masks. What colors should we use to paint this puppy back to normal?
Black and white like a panda bear
Purple and pink
Turquoise, neon green and orange
Bright yellow with leopard spots
Alright, this next one is another model that I've never seen before. Looking up the VIN I see that it's a Lincoln Futura - a concept car from the 1950s. There are all kinds of gadgets on this one! Rear-mounted parachutes, a battering ram, a mobile computer, a smoke screen producer and a cup holder. Looks pretty silly in pink. What colors should it be? (Remember, these are TV cars here, not movie cars.)
Lime green with black question marks
Royal purple with lots of chrome
Keep it pink, it was pink in the TV show
Black with scarlet trim
The next TV car looks like a Ferrari, but something's sketchy about it. It looks more like a Japanese knockoff of a Ferrari from the late 1960s. I see seven buttons in the center of the steering wheel. There's a pair of rotary saw blades underneath the front end of the car, and it appears that the entire interior can be sealed if the car is underwater. Rather than pink, this race car should be what color?
Next up in the garage of pink TV cars is a 1982 Pontiac Firebird Trans Am. This baby is totally souped up - it's got an olfactory sensor, a grappling hook, three different cruise control modes, a flame thrower, a bomb sniffer, video monitors and an ejector seat. Oh yeah, and it talks. What color should we use to put this car back to normal?
Black. Just black.
White with green headlights
A shame to see this classy car done all in pink. It's a 1966 Chrysler Crown Imperial. It seems that the headlights are reversible, the ones on the inside managed to escape the paint job and they're still bright green. I see we've got rocket launchers mounted under the headlights, and a nozzle of some sort in the grille. What color should we use to correct the pink paint and make it look like it did on TV?
Next up in the garage of TV cars is a British Leyland Mini 1000, also painted pink by our vandal. The steering wheel seems to be missing. There's a somewhat unique door-locking mechanism and a bedraggled teddy bear in the front seat. What color should it really be?
Black and white racing stripes
Last but not least, we've got a 1957 Chevy school bus, painted pink. Scattered throughout the bus we've found a handful of clues. A microphone, a guitar amplifier, two tambourines and a pile of unanswered fanmail from teenage girls. What color (or colors) should we use to put this bus back to normal?
Blue, green, red and yellow in a black abstract grid
Black with yellow striping
White with red, green and blue polka dots
Lavender with pink paisley
