    What is the basic primary colour of the vehicle you own? What colour would you never drive in, or does it not bother you much?

    Mine's a really nice dark gray/anthrazit metallic color, love the look of it. Color generally does bother me a lot, I see it somewhat as a reflection of my style and taste, so I'd rather not be seen in something pink :p I generally would'nt disqualify any more conservative or even flashy colors though, I recently saw an old VW Bug restored in orange, looked amazing. If it fits the overall style of the car, almost anything can work.

    My truck is white, well because that was what was there on the lot at the time with the standard
    transmission and regular cab. It is the first vehicle I have had that has been white. Blue seems like the
    most common for me. My VTX is grey or silver, depending on how you see it. I see it as grey.
    Generally I am not too picky about colors but there are some that I figure no I just could not live with that.

    The Mazda Tribute is a green and the and Acura TL is gold.

    Pink would be the last color I would pick for a paint color. My top choices would be Blue, Black, Silver and some shades of Orange. Years ago I want to do a custom car or truck in a Sunset Orange Pearl. There was a full size Chev on the cover of a truck magazine years ago in that color. It caught my eye and I still think about it.

    My current car is a tan/silver Oldsmobile and I love it! If I could repaint it, though, it would probably be a light blue... but then it wouldn't really match the brown leather interior. Orange and yellow shades are probably my least favorite. If my car randomly turned pink, though, I would probably not enjoy being seen in it quite as much. Despite being a chick, I don't dig that color.

    One of my car's is a dark blue and the other is silver. I have only own one car that was white ,but the others I tend to stick to dark colors for my vehicles I purchase. I would never drive a car that was pink and if someone gave me a car that color it would get a "Mako" job A.S.A.P.

    I owned a Green Golf when I bought it. I had to give that car a paint. I personally would like to have all my cars in a shiny glossy white. Then, to top it all off, I give the windows a mean tint. It looked awesome on my Golf. Will definitely try it on every other car I own and see if it works ;)

    My last vehicle was blueish-green (teal). My next vehicle will be either, dark blue, yellowish, or reddish. I intend to get something I've had before. I will never own nor drive a pink vehicle. :)

    I think I would rather drive a pink car then to have maaco paint a car for me. I'm not a fan of their paint jobs. At least the ones around here.

    I don't really qualify as I do not have a car anymore but I did vote red on the poll. The majority of my cars were red and although they were like a magnet to the cops I just think it is a hot color for a car. The worse in my opinion is a dull green.

    I love a dark purple or a nature green. Nothing better than a sweet green car. Purple is nice too because it's very subtle and elegant in a way.

    I have a Kia Soul that's lime green. I think it's a great car and it runs good. Also, my least favorite color is purple.

    Both my car and bike are black colored. I love the black color very much. I hate the bright colors like yellow and orange.

    I have a fleet of white cars only. I was inspired when i was younger by watching Bob Marley drive a white Mercedes and it looked really good. Ever since then i have felt like white is the best color for vehicles. I also like how it doesn't really deteriorate in the sun as much as other colors do.

    I drive a black color car and bike and realize that the color makes the vehicle look even more beautiful. However, I am afraid to see any of my vehicles in pink. It just spoils it. No offense to the color, but pink for a Ferrari or Hayabusa??

    Maybe some people may like pink color, therefore, I will limit my choice to myself. Also, I like blue, maroon and grey color for cars and bikes.

    Well, I suppose that no one would guess from my avatar, that I DO like pink vehicles !
    The car that I have now is a plain Jane silver car, blends in so well I have an awful time finding it in the parking lot, but it runs, so that is the important part.
    After I was in the bad accident with the Yugo, I had severe memory problems for months afterwards from the concussion.
    I would come out of a store, and have no idea where I parked, or even remember what my car looked like.
    It was awful!
    Once I was lost for over a half hour before I finally discovered my car.

    So, I had my Ranger painted a bright pink. When I went to the store, I parked at the edge of the parking lot, where I could easily see the pickup.
    Then, when I came out, even if I didn't remember what I was driving, the first thing that caught my eye was that bright pink pickup, and as soon as I saw it, I knew it was mine.
    It worked so well, I never got lost again, and I really loved that little pink Ranger. I drove it everywhere for years until it finally just wore out.

    My current vehicle is a dark blue color. I would probably never buy another black car in my life. They are just such a pain to keep the exterior looking good while avoiding swirl marks and the like.

    My car is Roma Red. It's one of my favorite Honda colors, next to Championship White. Although, the previous owner must have had the bumper repainted, because it is a tad darker than the rest of the car.:mad: But, for a 14 year old car, the paint is pretty good, aside from rock chips on the bumper.
