    At least Corvette has a pallet of colors to choose from. Look what you have to choose from if you were ordering an Audi:

      Like so many major manufacturers, lots of Blacks, Whites, Grays/Silvers.But I do see three there that I like: Dark Green, Dark Blue and Dark Red. I've seen them on actual cars; nice looking. They fit my more subdued tastes. --Bob

        When you're little, lollipop colors attract you.

        As you age the world appears as it is... shades of grey.

                        Now that the election is over, I see the red mist much less frequently! In a few months, I'll be seeing Red Mist much MORE frequently!

                          I liken it to Richard Petty super bird blue... So Ford cannot take ownership of that blue... And it's the color I ordered.
                          Build week was to be Feb 1. ugh.. So far I have lived through...

                              I was considering RB, until the spouse said "No, I don't like it." I figure I can give her that much input. And when I saw Red Mist, I had no regrets.

                                You must be married a long time, to have such wisdom...

                                It took me at least 20 years to gain that kind of insight into fostering matrimonial harmony.
