------------------------

Red: You're assertive (or aggressive) and strong.

Yellow: It screams "Look at me!" -- which is why you don't see it on family sedans. It'* for sporty SUVs and expensive sports cars, in which it also says, "I'm so rich I don't care what you think" (example, a $50,370 Corvette convertible).

Orange: You're on top of the trends. Orange (in many variations) is a key new color in 2003. GM has "sunset orange metallic" pickups; Mercedes-Benz offers a "paprika metallic" C-Class sports coupe.

Silver: You ooze class. The No. 1 car color (it passed white for the first time in 2001), silver represents speed, power and success -- which is why it'* the favorite color of baby boomers (ages 38 to 56).

White: A longtime favorite and the color of rental cars. People under 65 in a white car like to blend in. For the elderly, white harks back to the elegance and wealth of the 1920s.

Black: Power/aggression sums it up. The top choice for ages 24 to 37 and one of the top colors targeted by thieves (along with red).

Blue (medium or dark): You're conservative, middle of the road. Blue always seems to be No. 5 or 6 on lists of the top 10 car colors.

Green (medium or dark): See blue, above, and add a touch of environmentalism.

What about metallic purple, or as i like to call it, "Midnight grey". I like to keep a low profile with the cops, but i still keep my car damn clean looking.

haha the agression sums me up too...but it'* not so much the color of your car as the color that really attracts you to a car...

I guess the gray would be considered silver...as for the purple.. I dunno..

Howabout:
Pontiac Bonneville: I will turn the other cheek to nasty insults, but if i get slapped they get nailed .

Oh and as for color, it doesnt really apply cause i wouldnt pass up the 38K miles for $4K if it was hot pink (tho i would get it painted)
