I’m truly color blind, Chathura. So nobody’s listened to a phrase I say about automobile colors since that point I got here dwelling with a purple AMC Pacer in 1976. The reply is a trend, Chathura. The trend is one thing that’s so ridiculous that now we have to throw it out every six months and begin throughout.
And relating to inexpensive purchases, some folks can throw stuff out every six months. You should buy a powder-blue leisure swimsuit with white piping someday as a result of it appears modern. After which, six months later, while you notice you appear to be a funds pimp in it, you’ll be able to depart it within the closet and go purchase one thing else.
However as we go up the expense ladder, folks are likely to get extra conservative. So that you may take an opportunity on a loud shirt for $50 and see the way you prefer it over time, figuring you’ll be able to at all times cease carrying it. However, while you’re shopping for a home or a automobile, you’re more likely to really feel extra risk-averse.
You’d hate to spend $30K on a brand new automobile and resolve it appears to be like ridiculous six months from now, with 78 months of funds nonetheless to make. So folks have a tendency to stay with (a) muted colours and (b) colours that numerous different folks have already chosen, as a result of that makes them really feel that they’re making a protected selection. Security in numbers, proper? We are able to’t all look ridiculous.
The reality is, if folks needed to purchase lime inexperienced vehicles, the carmakers could be comfortable to color them that colour. It’s roughly the identical to them when it comes to price. However what they don’t need is a lime inexperienced automobile sitting on the lot for 2 years ready for a colour blind fool like me to suppose it’s grey and purchase it.
Nonetheless, you could find some fringe colours on the market. You simply might need to particular organize them. Dodge, in truth, makes a Day-Glo lime inexperienced Charger. Honda makes a shiny orange Match. You will get a Ford Transit Join in class bus yellow. You possibly can order your Jeep Renegade in metallic aqua. And you will get just about any Mini you need in two-tone paint.
As for me, I drive a “silver” car. However in my closet, simply ready for it to come back again into trend, I’ve a spectacular, double-breasted, pin-striped swimsuit. Any day now it’s going to be fashionable once more. I simply must hope it’s truly black, and never darkish purple.
