On a recent road trip I had a friendly discussion with my lovely husband and dear daughter mine about the colours of cars.
We decided that we didn’t like pink as a colour for a car, although we agreed that the white Citroen DS3 with pink roof was cool... for the right person!
Orange and brown didn’t work either for us however we did think that the bronze/amber Renault’s Captur was acceptable but only with the black trim and not their cream version.
Purple cars got the thumbs down from us which, was surprising as we all like the colour purple! We so wanted the purple Nissan Juke to look good but it didn’t!
Nearly all the shades of yellow didn’t quite hit the mark either but the gold yellow that we had seen on cars like the Mini and Hummer especially with black trims did pass muster.
The lime green of the Mazda 2 was agreed by us all to be a quirky colour for a car and we recognised that it was a popular buy about 5 years ago but we felt that it was now way past its sell by date and subsequent copies weren’t very pleasing either.
Dark green was a colour which split us into different generations. Dear daughter mine didn’t think dark green worked well as a car colour and couldn’t remember ever having seen one. However my lovely husband thought that the dark racing green of the classic MGB GT’s and Jaguar E Types, with cream leather interior were classy.
I had to agree with him.
As we reached our destination we realised that we had only discussed colours that we didn’t like to see on cars and agreed that maybe on another journey we could discuss those that we did like.
Maybe on your next car journey you could have a similar discussion; you might be surprised with what you come up with!
Thought for the day: The car colour we drive says a lot about us!
