The colour is real and was there in the past so nostalgia works for colour as too. I vote.... Colour

It's not so easy to say, because the PiP is too small. It is not realy good to compare with the twice as big b/w - in my opinion.
At the monchrome one I immediately read the words and had a smile, because the Bentley special mechanic houses in two small garages, parted by an arpartment door with knocker, bell and mail slot. My view was wandering only through the central part with that three different doors and the signs.
Of course, at the coloured version (did I mention already that it is too small? ;-)) ), you have the red door, and the greens of the garage gates. But you have the green on the road as well, and despite not important for the image, it caught my attention, before I was looking to the signs. Same happens with the strongly contrasted windows at the upper edge ... So if I would take the coloured one, I would crop the windows underneath their dark frames and most of the road.
But in my opinion, the monchrome version is more attractive. Still you could "play" a bit in Silver Efex, maybe with those red-, yellow- or green filters to get different grey tones for the different doors/gates (green and red are very different in reality). The coloured one has a fairly bright appereance, why not making the b/w brighter, lighter. Mr. Cunningham perhaps should friendly welcome the Bentley drivers in need ...
Well, you did ask. :-)
