    I agree..for past 20 years it's been black or silver.. I remember that silver was rare and cool. I have a silver car and it's still a great colour but common. In the 1970s green red purple orange etc were commonplace. We have become boring.

    I dunno, I love my car colors I have. I remember when I bought my 4th gen Maxima the owner was like yeah the car is gold/beige hopefully I don't care about the color. First I was like whatever, cuz the car had/has low milage. Slowly it grew on me and I'll definetly keep it, maybe make it a bit more vivid.. :D Haven't got a speeding ticket with my red teggy yet. :) My BMW is Granite Silver Metallic which is quite boring but still sexy on that car.

    The thing about red cars is a logical fallacy. Statistically, the proportion of drivers of red cars will always be smaller, so it’s easy to skew numbers; I’m on two red cars in a row now, and my insurance is quite reasonable. I also have been on the road with no speeding tickets for 22 years, though. 👍🏽
