I use to think it was black. A nice manly color. But now I am thinking red.

What do you have?

The pickup I have now is a very dark green. Being a Marine I like that, but am thinking red for a new one.

Suggestions?

I had a red one for years, like it. Now I have a black one (for 7 years), I like it too, but it is difficult to keep clean looking.

I've had a variety of colors.

Had a primer/blue (grin) 81 Chevy. Loved it because it was a junker.

Had a doeskin/burgundy 2-tone 85 pickup. That color was sweet.

Had a pure white 64 Chevy, that thing looked slick.

And now I have a black 06 Chevy. I think the black truck is overdone now...Next time I'll probably go Red.

Best resale is white first, black second, so I've been told. I have black. Red would get on my nerves after awhile, but that's just me.

I used to only buy Red, but the last two have been White. Looking at a new Tundra, going with White again. thumb

I have owed all 3 colors at one time. Red, Black and White. Red or Black it is for me. Never another white. Shows too much dirt.

Silver shows scratches and dents least of all colors. A painter told me that. It will also match your bullets.

You mean you're getting rid of your 1985 Nissan 300ZX with 93,000 miles that has only broken down twice in 24 years and whose total cost of maintenance you'll match with any vehicle of mine?

In the spirit of todays threads I choose white as my favorite color, followed closely by silver.
