I have set my egg timer waiting for the left to pronounce that anyone who owns a white car is a racist.Do colors evoke emotions? I dunno how it happened but we had 3 pearl white cars, seriously, a coincidence, but that seems pretty silly too
Why I think it's silly is not so much the white color, but the pearl on top of that. A touch up needs minimum of two different paints sometimes 3.....my other car is a gray metallic which I love, but feel it's somehow too common...so that's why I don't know if colors mean much...sometimes on a used car it means nothing, and on a new car it happened to be what appealed at the time....I have set my egg timer waiting for the left to pronounce that anyone who owns a white car is a racist.

Pre dawn raid pendingI have set my egg timer waiting for the left to pronounce that anyone who owns a white car is a racist.
My first car was black, loved that car and wish I still had it but I digress…. That was also a point in time that I had the time and energy to maintain a black vehicle. I swore them off after that. Then bought a black Caliber a few years later…. But you want to disappear when driving one.
My 300 looked great in white, and it made the 20% window tint look WAY darker than it actually was. Loved the contrast of the blacked out stuff against the white body. Blacked out wheels though? Absolutely frickin’ not, I hate them with a passion. Both my cars had gunmetal and that was borderline too dark.View attachment 146724

This picture makes my point. Awesome car, but even in the picture, I can see road grime on the rocker panel and rear quarter panel. Stands right out. If the car were silver, that same amount of road grime would not stand out near as much. I suspect, even other colors would not make the road grime stand out. But a black car shows every trace of dirt.The Vermont sky reflecting off a black CorvetteView attachment 146731
