What color is your car?

Recommended Posts

My TrailBlazer is 'Dark Pewter Metallic'

Basically, it's black. But if the lighting is right, it will take on the hue of whatever car is next to it [Confused]

Our dually is white. [smiley Wavey]

My car is royal blue. It was supposed to be an olive-y green, but there weren't any available. It's cute though. I have a VW rabbit. I love it.

My blazer was pewter. Boring. No more dirt colored cars/trucks for me!

Technically my truck is black- the one side is a matte and the other a gloss black. Half of my truck is rust... I have the town beater; when I drive in the rain, water comes up through the rust in my floorboards and makes my pant cuffs wet. heehee [big Grin]

I started out with a "sandrift metalic" (beige/gold) cavalier when I was in college. I traded that off for a dark grey 4-Runner a few years ago. Then I started hauling the horses more and needed my own truck. My criteria was it had to be at least 3/4 ton, I didn't want leather and nothing black. After a couple months of shopping I ended up buying a black & tan F250 with leather interior. I hate trying to keep black clean, but like how it looks when it is. We also have a black Toyota Celica we use as a work car and my husband drives a blue/silver Toyota Tundra.

My minivan is only one year old so I cannot trade it in yet. But next time...RED...WARNING!

Hey you would not hardly believe it but in the snow storms You can actually see the white cars better then yellow.

That surprises me. I just thought to warn other drivers that a winter novice was on the roads! Kind of like a fire engine. Red, loud & lights!

I have seen a vw with that same paint job. It is actually nice looking.

I have a Chevy express van(Can't remember what it is at the moment) that is white. Around here people think it is invisible because they are always coming close to hitting me.

If I had an option I would get a red mini cooper but that will probably never happen.

I don't have it yet

(it's missing a side view mirror-- my brother, the previous owner-- and I sort of don't have my permit quite yet, either)

but when I do get it,

the truck is this color green.

Yum.

I think it's more how much people care (or don't) about their car's color, etc. that tells more about them than the actual color, though.

I work at a dealership and have to say that we sell a lot of silver and pewter type colors. Although with the new chrysler line there are a lot of burnt oranges and red types going out. Interesting tidbit, the most popular color for cars has been silver. As of 2007 white/white metallic took over as the most purchased vehicle color.
