The Colors of Cars

Publish date:

It's been a while since I have seen one of those press releases annoucing the most popular color for the current crop of cars. Judging from what I see in the parking lot here at Krause Publications ( , I'll bet it's something really boring like white, ice blue or silver.

I have 11 vehicles in my current "collection." Here's how the colors break down. My '36 and '48 Pontiacs are boring black. My '53 Pontiac Catalina and '54 MG TF are yellow. The other seven vehicles (1952 MG TD, 1957 Buick Century, 1957 MG ZB Magnette, 1988 Chevy pickup, 1989 Chevy police car, 1991 Lincoln Town Car and 1994 Pontiac Sunbird ragtop) are all different shades of red.

Now it's your turn. Hit the "comment" button below and tell me about your cars and what color they are. I'm betting "Resale Red" wins.
