    My current vehicle (Ford F-150) is a charcoal gray. My wife's rig (Oldsmobile Alero) is a dark green.

    Mine is a plain white one, but I'd love to switch to a different colour... I'd love a metalic purple tone. I'm also thinking of a really cool design, like the one you see on those leggings that have a galaxy print, that design would look neat on a car!

    I personally own a 2011 Fiesta is that is blue flame metallic. It describes much about my personality but I won’t mind changing it to Ruby blue. I always love it to see my car having vibrant additions to the palette

    My Citroen AX is white, the VW Sharan is also white, and the Fiat Punto is huh, some weird dark gray? I wouldn't like to drive/own a purple car. I'd love to have the Seat Ibiza 2008 1.9 TDI in the light metalic green version though.

    I love red and white cars the best. My old tbirds were mostly white ones. My trucks have usually been red. I had a blue vehicle once but if faded so that is not a color I would care to repeat. Not really fond of green cars, but I love nature and plants, but I dont like it on metal I guess.

    This color is actually trendy. I went to the bank today and I saw about a dozen of cars with this exact color.

    I used to like olive green, but actually think that I like whatever color that is actually trendy. Actually this green indeed :D

    Yeah, it's the kind of color and car that catches attention but not too much. I mean, it's beautiful, but not so un-common. It's also good to have such colors. There's less probability that your car will ever be jacked, as common colors such as black & metalic gray are mostly the ones choisen on robberies due to the vehicles being harder to identify/find in traffic.

    My favorite color on my cars is black. I like that it is a really nice and classy color that you can really get to make your car stand out. I think that black is also a color that also easily blends in and makes your car the type to be an all round kind of vehicle.

    I saw yesterday a Mercedes Benz passing by, but what caught my eye was it's color; neon orange!!!

    I remember to have seen cars in metallic blue or pink, lilac and other uncommon colors.

    Would you go any of you for one of those fancy colors?

    I owned both a black and white car. I first had a black car first. A black car is very high maintenance because you can see every single imperfection, but once it is clean it, your car will look very good. Also, it is easier to see swirl marks. Later on, I drove a white car. Driving a white car feels so good because I didn't have the need to wash it often since a white car will appear to look clean when it is dirty.

    I own a white and a gray of which I don't mind. I like light colors so I wouldn't change them since they suit my style

    The problem with these colors if that they can get very dated. The trendy/specialty colors usually have a year associated with them, which isn't necessarily a bad thing, but it's really easy to look at some of them and know exactly what year it came out. I do love that color, though, and I think it looks better on smaller cars.

    But my FR-S is pearl white, doesn't show dirt at all, only mud, but I wash it about every weekend. The Silverado and Durango are both burgundy (my family has an obsession with this color), and the Taurus is that greeny-gray/tan color. It's really hard to pick it out exactly. My 3000GT was also pearl white. I'll probably stick with that color :)

    My favorite color is black. When the time came for me to buy a car, there was no more discussion. My car is crystal black.

    I personally prefer vehicles that are white. As plain as the color white is, I just think that it makes a car look a lot cleaner. I also like Navy blue cars. I use to really like black cars when I was younger, but after owning a black truck, I know how hard it is to keep a black vehicle looking clean.

    I don't have a car, but if ever I'm gonna have one, then I prefer the classic colors like black, red, green, etc. I don't like white though.
