Cars and Colors

I've got this weird thing about certain colors and how they apply to specific vehicles.

For instance, I have this dilemma that all SS vehicles from the 60's and 70's should be red, but SS vehicles 80's to present should be black.

Now, Z-cars (Z28, Z06, Z34, etc), I feel that bright red is the correct color.

Let's take a gander at other makes. Dodge, for instance - I have this thing that SRT vehicles are associated with black, whereas R/T models would be red.

Ford SVT vehicles - red. Their sporty models (like Mustang GT or SHO) would be black.

Pontiac. The top models (GXP, WS6) should be black. The GT range should be white.

Does anyone else have this odd color-complex?

Which is sort of ironic since the first ones were white.

But it is stigmas like that that make me feel odd for deviating to another color. I am certainly quite odd

I was a red only corvette guy. I have grown. The SS2 will be Rally Red, so maybe not too much.

DS:

I feel that way about certain engines in cars.

For some reason whenever I think about the LS1, I want it to be in a RED car.

When we talk about the LS2, I always picture it in a BLUE Car (I've seen a lot of BLUE LS2 GTOs, now it's sort of stuck in my head that LS2s are BLUE).

Now since we are all talking about the LS3, I always picture it in an yellow/orange car (Like that bronze orange color on the vettes).

I think all tuner cars (regardless of make/model) should be either white, gray/silver, or black with black wheels and smoked headlights and taillights!

I think all Gen III Camaros with T-TOPS should be black (TTOPS ruin the flow of the car IMO, with black, you can't see them too much).

Everybody knows the best looking color of a 5th gen Camaro is Red Jewel Tintcoat.


Oh......and DS, you are quite odd!

Nope. But as the others have pointed out already the oddity is strong in you.

Thank you all for your honesty. It's much appreciated.

What's most odd is that I seriously would have problems purchasing one of the cars in a color that doesn't fit in "my" thoughts.
