Considering a black car right now and I am hesitant to pull the trigger. I've never had a black car with good paint before. I don't mind running my buffer over it every now and then though...

Best of luck to you.
I said I'd never buy another black vehicle, but found a benz that looked good and pulled the trigger. 3 months later and I sold it and put the wife in a new white car. Maybe my ocd is just greater than my ability to keep one spotless. lol!

I have not purchased the car yet, haha. If it was another color I probably would have already

I just park my black Supra in the garage after I wash it and then don't drive it, touch it, look at it, or breathe near it for up to three weeks at a time.

Keeps it relatively clean.

I tried out this new color called flake and rust. You guys would not believe how little of a shit you can give parking front row, watching girls open your door into brick walls, people leaning on it, all of that is completely fine now.

I still wash it about once a week haha

I like dark blue mainly. That's why I spray painted my truck desert tan lol. That was based on sale walmart had on that color. I would love to put a new cab on my truck and have it a deep dark blue.

Green any shade is gross.
That flipping paint or whatever it was called is stupid.
Yellow is ok sometimes.
Orange on the classics.
I'm tired of the patina look.
White reminds of work vehicles and govt vehicles

Subtle.

I had a jeep cj7 that was midnight metalic blue. Cool color. About as dark as i would go.

I remember as a young kid i leaned on my grandma's black caddy. About got 3rd degree burns. This was summer in florida. It had dark maroon velour interior. Classic old car cardboard package tray smell.

I do like the dark green on old boxy trucks like this:

Damn, black is hated the most I think. I thought it treated me well. I had it detailed by a pro and I guess that helped.

That high boy F250 is badass

And Mike, nothing against that truck, but I'm not a fan of 90% of the green vehicles out there. That dark green reminds me of black, so I'd be out. lol
