John's DeSoto in Yellow and Charcoal is reminiscent to me in FM's Limited Edition of 500 1958 Corvette in the same basic colors.

Speaking of yellow & black automobiles of the 50's, this was our family car when I was a youngster:

FM & DM came out with the Panama Yellow '58 Corvette. DM's was not a limited edition of only 500 and had a few more advanced & operational features to entice buyers. Their Corvette 'coves' however, were mis-shapened and FM's charcoal was more exact to the 1:1.  I have both and appreciate the 'look' of the FM more.

Here's one car in that color palette that I wouldn't mind having in the driveway. The things you find on Rodeo Drive.
