We asked you to vote for your least favorite car color and you turned out to the polls in record numbers. Was it a close race?

Let's just say we've seen bigger landslides, but only on the news, and those involved heavy rains and tons of actual dirt. There were a lot of horrific, gag-worthy choices out there, but only one rose to the top of the heap. And so, without further ado, we present...

The Color You Hate The Most:


How much do you hate this color? Quite a lot, it seems!

Here's what you said:

  • "That pink reminds me of a particularly ubiquitous 80's shade of nail polish." --Michele Hackler 
  • "To me, it looks like pizza-and-wine vomit — not that I have any clue what that looks like." --Evan Sears,
  • "I've seen some Pepto-Bismol pink cars that make me want to take some Pepto-Bismol." -- Eve Rice-Whittenburg

But here's the best advice we got: "Google 'Blobfish'. That's what techno pink looks like." (Thanks, Ann Marie Hughes.)

Okay Ann, we took your advice, and we have to admit you're on to something!

Thanks for voting!
