This one's for you Mom...

After seven years wearing the color crown, silver has been dethroned.

The new favorite car color among Americans...WHITE!!!

My mom despises white cars. She detests them. Whenever we go on vacation and pick up our rental car we all laugh in amusement when the guy behind the counter hands us the keys to the pearly white parked in B-37.

So, when I came across this article, I couldn't resist:

"For the first time this century, more white cars were manufactured in 2007 than those in any other color, according to DuPont’s most recent color study.

"In North America, 19 percent of vehicles manufactured in 2007 were either white or 'pearl white,' which is white with an iridescent or metallic sheen. Eighteen percent of 2007 vehicles were silver, and 16 percent were black, including black with metallic effects."

(At least we all agree that green is an ugly color for a car...sorry to a few of my friends out there who drive green-machines.)

So what do you think Mom? While you may be hating on the color white...or as you like to call it, "the absence of all color" it looks like the rest of America is loathing in the new fad. I think I like it.

I agree with Kim...white kills me, it looks soooo...plain and marshmallowee. Black and charcoal rock!

Haha! I love this post! They were talking about White cars on the radio this morning! Lo and behold, as soon as I looked to my right, I saw a white Chevy pick up with "truck nuts" dangling from the back. Gross... I officially hate white cars now...
