Miami Vice and Awesome 80's Roll Call...

This thread is meant for those of us with only the greatest 80's paint schemes. Those without wild paint and bright or pastel colors need not apply.

I'll start.

The current crew.





Long gone, but still with me at heart. This one started it all.

Mind you, I prefer my frames to the Magnum P.I. theme, thank you

My late 80's Luigi Montagner!

Very cool paint. Loaded with Suntour goodies.

Should see her in person!

Although I sold it this weekend in anticipation of building up the Opus IV I'll enter my used-to-be-mine 1988 Fuji Tiara:

Not sure what year this Klein is but the paint is pretty wild.

Hell yeah, this thread.

Miami Vice extended into the early 90's, right?

I'll allow it because of the obvious 80's theme carrying over.

Oh man. Loving this thread. I really want one of those Centurions.

The tennis ball-yellow is faded, also not the best photo, but here's my Bottechia:

I'm not sure if this steve bauer is from the 80's but it's one from my personal collection, i bought it cause the colors were pretty cool, plus it had an all matching shimano 105 group on it

After I post my old one, of course.

The down tube decal on my May '83 Paramount is a little risky. But that is about it. The black paint does have metal flake in it, so it is not as "stiff" as a Ford Model A. Of course Miami Vice didn't air until September 1984. So the guys in Waterford, WI lacked inspiration at the time.



BTW, which C&Vers can claim to have watched the first season of MV in the Fall of 1984? I can.
