Yellow Cars

A couple of co-workers noticed my computer's wallpaper, Rally Yellow Camaro. Anyways, they really started rubbing it in to me saying Yellow was a girl color and only girls would want a yellow car.

This is actually the first time I have ever heard that and I was wondering if others agreed with that statement.

(I'm still getting yellow, doesn't bother me)

Hell no its not a girl color. Just ask the Daytona 500 winner
I seriously considered getting yellow with black rally stripes.

If they dont like it dont let them ride in it that will teach them

HECK NO...yellow is cool if you like a bright car. BUT...I did get tired of people bustin my balls, calling it a taxi. (that's one of the reasons I bought a blower). Funny, it did seriously attract bees.

I almost ordered a yellow camaro so I could keep my vanity plate "UN MELLO"




This camaro shot is still one of my favorites...

to me it depends on the car its on. I dont think its a girl color but what I mean is not all cars can pull it off.

Well you know.... you have the yellow Chevy Camaro, which looks sharp..... Then you have the yellow Beetle.... it's like that powder yellow.... that is a girl's CAR. It's meant for vanity. But by all means, color doesn't constitute it being a girl or guy color.... seriously.

i agree. it's more the car than the color. a yellow bug is the epitome of girliness. a yellow Camaro, on the other hand, i think is just bad ass. they're just rippin' on ya to get a rise out of ya, i'm sure. just tell your friends yellow is the fastest color!

Tell those guys that you asked a librarian named Selena and she said yellow is NOT just a girl's color regardless of whether she's ordered one or not! That oughta end the debate...







EDIT: She's right, of course! Just struck me as amusing.

Thanks! For me it is about having a BRIGHT color, I love bright cars and I like to stand out.

My son is 9 and I told them I was going to give it to him when he turns 16 and THAT is when they said "you're gonna make him drive a girl color car"

Anyways, I am happy with yellow and I'm sticking to it (not that it was ever in doubt).
