    What are your favorite colors for your vehicles?

    I like black or white, and some of the metallic grays and silvers.

    Gratuitous pics of your rides are requested.

    I like white for an everyday vehicle down here due to the hellish summertime, but black always looks good on a well kept vehicle... For custom cars or the classics, my tastes expand considerably...

    I like blue. (Must be a Virginia thing). A brighter red is good too. Not really a fan of black or gray/silver. They're the most popular generally these days and those kinda cars are everywhere.

    Here's my daily. Bought her brand new. 2009 Accord EX-L V6.

    It's a shame. This color only lasted a couple of years.

    Love black, but swirls like crazy and is incredibly difficult to keep clean. Looks great when it is clean though. My new favorite color is BMW's Alpine White.

    Thanks. Funny thing is, in the right light, usually when it is getting dark, from a distance it looks kinda purple. Belize blue pearl they called it. I was gonna get it in the San Marion red that Honda does, but decided the blue was a little "stealthier". :whistling: They I actually prefer the blue. A couple more years, after the powertrain runs out, then it's time to "play" with the engine. The car is actually pretty quick with 271hp, but it can be quicker. :)

    Funny thing is I've never gotten a ticket with this car. But the last time a got a ticket, about three years ago was in a Chevy Aveo. (a work car.).:rofl:

    Depends on the vehicle for me. I'm typically drawn towards red, however.

    I like Pretty green (like ford Estate green) 2002 Explorer LTD
    I like the Honda Blue (Azure pearl ?) 2008 Accord EX I-4
    I like black on most everything (Currently my newly aquired 2002 Acura MDX)
    I like a lot of the neon greens and oranges out (Kia Soul, Honda Fit)
    and a nice copper or bronze metallic is always a winner

    My Favorite is Green, but hardly anybody puts out a nice green anymore.

    Blue or black when I was younger, nowadays white or black. I had a red phase in there for a short time, but the fire service got that out of my system. :juggle:

    Deep red. Candy Apple Red. Blue. (No 'powder blue' or 'sky blue'.) Deep blue. MOPAR's "Patriot Blue" is gorgeous!!!
    Metallic gray.

    I saw an episode of "American Hot Rod" several years ago, and they had a "Cream and Tangerine" (Metalflake!) that was eye-popping gorgeous!!!

    That combination would look great on a '56 Chevy or a '62 Corvette!!

    Black for looking at (when clean) silver for owning (doesn't show dirt well).
