We don't care for silver and have avoided buying a silver car simply because it seems it's the color of most cars on the road.

I love silver because it is easy to keep clean and not as boring as white. Can't stand black cars due to how hard they are to keep clean

Buy it and take it to MAACO for a cheap new paint job if it's such a deal you can't pass up.

Silver is closest you can get to a colorless car. BTW, that green Lexus isnít as bad as I thought. I am sure somebody will want it. There are new cars today in all sorts of weird colors I canít even name. What is this?

I think I like that color but I'd like to see it in daylight as that matters a lot. To me it would be a great color for a truck likely.

Eh, I'd take that one. It's not a color I'd pick as a favorite, but if I could save a couple grand, sure. I've seen ugly green. That's not it. I had a Lexus several years ago. I really liked it.

Same here; I buy cars to keep for years, so I want to like what I am going to be looking at every day.

I thought white was the most boring car ever...until a friend said, What are you talking about?
You never have to wash it, you are seen on the road, it doesn't fade with oxidation.
Gave me a whole diff perspective. And all true.

Now I see that a white car 'pops' when I'm pulling out of somewhere....those dark cars I
truly have to take A DOUBLE TAKE...I did not SEE them....oops!
A guy told me in his black car he is sure to be the first one with his lights on
bec no one sees him.
I found the same thing with my dark gray Accord...I hated it...people pulled out in front of me
all the time like I was invisible!

So I have my second Toyota white truck and a silver car....when I walk out of anywhere...
there are 12 silver cars and 2 other colors....so I glued a florescent orange ping pong ball
on my antennae! So much easier in a sea of silver cars.

I had to be washing my dark car WAY too much...always looked dirty....just dust on it.
Though a shiny black car is beautiful to me....cant see 'em and always dusty.
