    Your Thoughts on Today`s Vehicle Colors; Part 2

    OK, I will add some additional observations and opinions on vehicle colors to this thread topic, rather than start a new one (Good choice, Captain Obvious!).
    Is it me or is EVERY vehicle white, black, or some shade of grey or silver?!!!!! Sitting the parking lot of a Walgreen`s pharmacy on a busy city street (where EVERY Walgreen is located by) I observed the vehicles going by and what did I see?? It would seem EVERY vehicle regardless of make or type was either white, black, or some shade of grey or silver. It looked like I was watching a black-and-white movie! And the few (and I do mean FEW) vehicles that were colored stood out like a soar thumb. Yes, and this coming from someone who owns and drives a BLACK Ford Freestyle (hypocrisy admitted, although in my defense, that is the way the SUV came from my Mom`s estate when we bought it).
    It`s just an observation, but I do miss the days of Ford Grabber Green and Mopar Plum Purple and GM Victory Red. Subaru`s "Sunshine" Orange, though, reminds me of a county utility/dump truck. Nor am I a fan of anything yellow, except maybe a Ferrari in Giallo Modena or Fly Yellow or Yellow Rose (color code matches be "darned").

    Do you see this trend as well? What are your thoughts?

    Oh man would I go for that in a *heartbeat* if I were buying a MOPAR...well, if I didn`t get [whatever they`re currently calling the coppery-orange metallic].

    Ha, when Cadillac came out with the CTS in 2003(?), they had that burnt orange metallic color, I really liked that car in that color.

    My friend had a similar color orange MIni but just got rid of it due to being sick of the color. I wouldn’t have minded it because it was a distinct car. In fact, I’ve never seen another orange one in person.
    Treat it like it`s the only one in the world.

    YEP. I think I posted I took the Rosso Corsa car to my nephew`s baseball game. There were maybe 200 cars in the lot, all silver, gray, black, white. And me sticking out like a sore thumb. Not an exaggeration.
