About a week ago we got more than a foot of snow, and it has been sufficiently cold since that most of it is still around. While driving, it can be hard to see all the white cars poking their way around snowbanks. White is a really good camouflage color in a snowy environment.
Other than the number of white cars out there, one other thing I noticed is how few cars are particularly colorful. Black, grey (and silver-ish), and various earth-tones are really popular, along with dark blues and a couple of dark red (burgundy) ones. Not too many brights on the road - reds, yellows, oranges, greens. My car is what the manufacturer calls 'electrolyte green', probbaly because it is colored similarly to Gatorade - although I personally think its color is closer to that of a tennis ball. One co-worker once described it as 'snot-colored' . No matter what you want to call the color, it is easy to pick out in a parking lot, especially when partially covered in snow. This color definitely isn't popular though - I have only a handful of cars in this shade in the town where I live. Other bright colors, such as Firetruck red - the classic hue for the mid-life crisis Mustang is also rare, as is bright yellow - although I did see a yellow Porsche a few months ago. Memorable since so rare.
What is it with the drab car colors? People just want to blend into the crowd? Why waste money on an expensive car if nobody will notice it? And it becomes too easy to lose track of at the mall?
