Re: Colour Me Stupid Mk1

First of all, thanks for taking the time out to vote, that would be 18 of us – I was, like you, getting bored with every thread descending into a colour war.

So, having started this poll, I suppose I should nail my colours to the mast. [I’ve avoided comment previously.]

I await the flames as I post the reasons - as per the poll – in alphabetical order.

Black – at the time when I purchased mine it was described to me as something like Aubergine – which in a certain light was brown – it wasn’t 1974.

Broom Yellow – Just a little too brash for me. [Saying that the “Ivo” stripes only work on yellow and break it up to ease it on the eye – even if you think they’re retro, they just suit the yellow]

Garden Green [Metallic] – Too old English for me and I could have bought a mint MGB for the price I paid for the barchetta. I’m glad I didn’t.

Orange – My friends pushed me in that direction, I do like it , but it’s Orange! * [Although I still look for orange on auto trader, as I fancy a second one just to confuse people.]

Racing Red – I just didn’t want a little red sports car. That, and age old fears of paint fade put me off, yet this has apparently been proved otherwise with the b.

Sea Blue [Metallic] – I hired the one in Revs article [Topless review thread] from Autohaven before purchasing [they knocked the price of the hire off the purchase price] I just didn’t like the colour. * Fortunately, it didn’t put me off the b.

Steel Grey [Metallic] – on any other car it’s a sign that you’ve given up, on the b I just thought hmm possible, but not for me. That and the majority of Porsche Boxsters are a similar colour.

And finally…

I drive a Midnight Blue [Metallic] barchetta. It was the only one left.

However, In conclusion we are colour blind, as no matter what colour it is, we bought it, we like it , we drive it.

* inconclusive results prove a similar train of thought

Re: Colour Me Stupid Mk1

Would a white B be nice? Hmm.. Can't picture it in my head, but I think it could be nice. Give it some classic feel. What do you think? Ever seen a white B?
