Help with colors for vintage cars website?

The idea I have in mind for the colors is to get the feeling of a 1940's or 1950's gas station or a garage. Vintage paper, cardboard, greasy hands, oil drops, heavy metal tools, gas station insignia... which colour could take the visitor back in time?

1-3 main colors and few effect colors for spicing up.
Red, aqua, and black.
When I think of the 50's, those are the colors I think of!
These are the kind of colours I think of:

1950s_Gas_Station1950s_Gas_Station
I came up something like this but... i don't feel this would be the one.. Roadside Gas Station
Hows something like this:
For_Amle
Use something related to red
Probably blue and green. When you look back at photos of retro gas stations, burger joints, bowling alleys, (basically anything from the era), blue and green feature heavily.
Love the green color.

Since Aug 2018, I can longer upload or publish templates I create using Seamless Studio. In Seamless Studio, I'll create a template, and click on "Upload to Colourlovers," my browser opens a new tab to CL but it just goes to a blank Seamless Lite page, and I am not logged in on that page. This happens whether I am already signed in to CL or not.

When I used to "Upload to Colourlovers," a CL would open on the browser saying something like "we have your template but you need to sign in." I would sign in, and my template would be ready to publish.

Hello community! Could you let us know if you're still experiencing the issues with Recaptcha and the patterns? Please write to editor@colourlovers.com
It's easier for us to keep track of what needs to be fixed this way. Thanks! :)

Thank you so much!! And I fixed the login issue today-it was a stupid settings issue on my part, not a site bug.
