The first couple years of Subaru SVX came in a purple called Claret that I kind of tolerate, but I would still argue is the worst color they came in.

Elvis's pink 55 is cool (well cool enough, not really my bag honestly) but that Mary Kay pink I HATE!

It's like they accidentally dripped 3 Fl Oz of red paint into 5 gallons of white paint and were like "Meh, I don't feel like fixing it."

That's a pretty good description, it's a white that's juuuuuust ruined enough to be awful.

I’m not a fan of yellow, green anything, or any crazy “look at me” colors... that being said I’ve seen certain cars that I can live with thinking they look good, but not my personal choice. I keep it simple... black, white, silver... a well done candy apple red is about as crazy as I get, but that would have to be on some old skool hot rod!

And enough with the black wheels!!! The whole “murdered out” look is so dated! And this is coming from a guy with an all black boat! I keep enough accent color to keep from being ALL black though.

I used to ply by black cars.

Then one day I bought a yellow GTO Because I was cheap.

Only good came from that car was it opened my eyes to bright colors. Or other colors are ok. And some look good even dirty.

I think black is a great vehicle color for a museum piece. Its impossible, IMPOSSIBLE to take care of on anything that gets driven at all and looks like shit instantly in the real world. Car wash tunnel? You totaled the car great job.

I also won't own yellow anything. Or red, if I can help it.
Don’t you have a red car?

I think it was priced 30% too cheap, or I would never have bought it.

I owned a yellow CRX for about 3 days for the same reason, once upon a time.

I’ve got a green Corvette that I’m quite fond of. (It’s just as bad as black)
