    Default Why boring colours

    Does anyone else think that the range of colours that new cars are available in is boring.
    Not many cars are available in Yellows, Oranges, etc.

    Yellow used to be a standard colour my mate had a beautiful yellow mark 1 fiesta. I'd pay good money for the Ford ST Orange on a car.

    I don't want to look like every Jo Bloggs.

    Rant over.

    Block colours don't sell to well, white,yellow,green,maroon,royal blue etc, most ppl want pearls and metallics these days, the makers have to decide on the ecos of tooling up a spray line for a limited desire, and that's why you don't see them much these days, I've owned a few in my time, White 405 which once I'd done a few bits to it looked the nutz, and a Yellow Manta A, Orange Cavalier Coupe, Orange Cortina 3 GT, White Capri 3.0 Ghia, Man City blue Escort Mk1 and a few more less interesting cars that I can't remember exactly.
