You got all that right. I saw an old Buick this week. Three colors,
four holes alongside the motor. Top was white, main color sort of a
tomato soup red and bottom was black. Pure '50s.

Now, as for pots, I try to get as close to what I see in my head do as I
can given a limitation to electric firing. I haven't gotten there yet,
either. But I can't change what I see in my head and I don't want to.
