Dealers will tell you people pick white and silver because they are the most prevalent colors on the lot, and when people are buying, it's the easy, safe choice. Buyers also are leery of going with a color that could make selling the car down the road a little tougher.
This love of white cars comes as buyers are spending more to upgrade their interiors with leather heated seats, in-car communication systems and yes, personal touches. No, not everyone is pimping out their car, but there is steady demand for customizing new rides.
I'll admit that I look twice when I see an odd color car like purple driving down the road. And I'm not saying we should return to the days of the mustard yellow Gremlin. I just wonder if white and silver is what we're stuck with for the foreseeable future.
