I had a Hot Wheels car growing up that looked really close to the "PURPLE FLAMIN-GO!" car.
:D Nostalgia!

Howla! That was my favorite hot rod of the bunch! What an amazing paint job, and inspired palette! Do you have a photo of it? We'd love to see it and a palette it inspires within you! So cool when blogs connect to that nostalgia from the past!

That would all depend on if I have the car in my attic somewhere. ;) Can't seem to find a photo online of the thing.

Found it online. Turns out my old toy had some pattern and not flames, but the colors were so close!

This is exactly the fun contributions and interchange we are hoping to get going within the colourlovers community with this blog, Howla! Thanks so much for your PERFECT addition! Love it! And when I went to the palette itself--your picture was there too! Awesome!
