Color on Wheels: What is your favorite color for a car and why? – Readers Choice

Red and silver, black and white, these are just a few of the most common colors you see on cars today. But, as many people may know, it wasn’t always that way. In fact, Henry Ford once said that when it came to his new Model T, the customer could have any color they wanted, “as long as it’s black.”

But in the 21st century, cars come in every color of the rainbow. Some colors are even trademarked under a certain brand and model, such as the Chevrolet Corvette shown below in the exclusive “Jetstream Blue.”

So, with the power of choice in mind, we asked our friends and followers what their favorite car color was.

Check out what they had to say!

  • KJ: Dark red, my color for retirement.
  • CH: Black, when it is clean and shiny (as soon as it gets a little dust on it, it looks terrible)! My all-time favorite are the deep reds… a fun but classy color!!
  • JC: Blue, because it’s not only my favorite color, but Superman’s as well!
