When I sold cars back in the day, all of us were anxious to see what the next year's colors were going to be. It was just one of those things we were all geeky about. Some people like the more basic and simple colors, others prefer theirs to be more loud and wild.

The "flat" or "matte" colors have seen a uptick in popularity in the last 5 years. I have to admit, at first, I thought it was primer! Haha. They have definitely grown on me over the years, I think they look pretty cool.

So, What Goes Into A Color Choice For A Vehicle?

1. Safety.

2. How much dirt it shows.

3. Personal preference.

I've had 5 vehicles over the last 12 years, and they've all been either black or white. It's just my preference. I guess I like the whole opposite thing.

It's not white, but, BLACK, is the most common car color in Massachusetts, according to iseecars.com.

Every state in the U.S. has either white or black for a top color choice!
