Cool cars in bad colors

Post by STeeL » Wed Apr 17, 2019 12:57 pm

Just wondering if there are any cars that you love that are sold in colors that you hate?

I think this pretty much every time I see an RX-7 in Montego Blue. Maybe some people like it, but I think teal green just doesn't flatter that car.

Another random example, I think DSOM might actually be my favorite color on the C6... But I don't really like it at all on the C7. No idea why.

I’m in 100% agreeince with you on this. I was really excited to see this as a color freeing but when I saw it on the car I wasn’t a fan. I would 100% have another DSOM C6Z though.

Bright green lambo's bother me. Matchbox cars should emulate real cars, not the other way around.

Montego Blue is the best color that came on FDs. Are you high?

I also won't own yellow anything. Or red, if I can help it.

Anything Burnt Orange, I dunno why but I hate that color. I screams "we wanted to give someone an option other than 'beige' in 2003"

Plain old silver is such a blase choice for a performance car. Nearly anything is more interesting, even (somehow) white

I cannot stand a red car but my 68 Firebird was red & I couldn’t imagine any other color on it lmao.

On the original post I’m a fan of Montego blue.
Can't fix stupid.

Why should I have to change my name? He’s the one that sucks!

Lol I feel this. I've never liked red on most cars, especially old and flat red. I've bought three like that so far.

Just when I was starting to think you were bringing some logical counterpoints to this forum from time to time. Now I have evidence that your perception of the world is off and I can't ignore it.


As for me, I think there is a difference in colors I wouldn't own and colors I don't like, and colors I think look bad on cars. Not a lime green fan or on most cars, but it fits the flamboyant nature of a Lambo in my eyes. I don't like yellow anything, but I can't deny some cars look ok with it. My personal tastes are usually for silver or darker colors. I'm also a sucker for dark wheels like black, or some dark grays.

I refuse to own anything red, yellow, gold/beige/geriatric tan

Anyone that knows me also knows I pretty much exclusively buy white vehicles. I even like all the sports cars I like in white, but fuck you lime green, traffic cone orange or electric blue can have a plate at the cookout if its something obnoxious or exotic enough.
