Stripper Name or Car Paint?
Diplomatically impaired compared to our friends in Chicago, we here at Car Talk Plaza went ahead and decided to ask you to pick a winner.
Vote for your least favorite car color right here.
Now, I have to confess, I have a touch of color-blindness. I saw Blue Man Group in Las Vegas and the show could just as well have been called 8 Bald Guys. Therefore, a sincere thanks to whoever makes the color decisions at the car companies. Even my deadbeat pigment detector has to acknowledge a kick to the vision ribs that is a Chevy Spark in Hot Pink. And when it comes to the bar game Stripper Name-Or-Car Paint?, "Magenta Sonic" lands me a free Guinness every time. The insane Mopars of the '70s came in colors like Plum Crazy, Go Mango, and Hey-Look-I'm-A-Moron-With-Money-Green, and I loved them, so I'm all for a Ford Fiesta that looks like a rolling margarita, I just wish you could salt the rim with a 426 Hemi.
