Crazy car colors

Post by koimaster » October 27th 2020, 9:03pm

The color of a car can say a lot about a person and even speak to the driver's purpose in life. Orange is commonly used to warn of road construction projects ahead, whereas beige is synonymous with a clear message: Hello, folding silverware is my kink. More than a quarter of new automobiles sold last year in North America left the lot wearing white. Shades of black, gray, and silver make up over half of the market, leaving just 21 percent of cars sold last year in some flavor of red, green, or blue.

The good news is that automakers still offer some eye-catching hues for the extroverts who prefer their cars to stand out. Way out. Here are some of the most unusual and outlandish paint jobs. Even if, statistically speaking, most people are unlikely to actually buy them.

I'm in the 79% group. Color of choice is white, favorite color is Ford Metallic Silver.
Looks like bare steel where the light shines on it.

Hard color to match though, took my painter four tries to get the color matched correctly on the rear bumper cover (lady backed into me lightly).
