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.

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.
