favorite color

I was really bored, so I decided to start a thread where we all identify our favorite colors, then argue about why that selection describes you best or is superior to any other color. Select the color that your particular shade is nearest in the spectrum when voting in the poll.

Since I want to hear your arguments first, I won't tell you why you are all wrong and mine is better until I've heard enough of your arguments—so there. :p

Silver's not up there.......and I won't choose white.:p
Silver is: The purity of the color white, with a little bit of badass black color mixed in. Fits me perfectly..."so there":p

EDIT: ne'ermind. picking grey - somehow I skipped over that.

It was a toss up between blue and green, but I went with blue. I want my Camaro in either blue or green.

Green is by far my favorite. It's rich in hue and is the complimentary color to purple, the color of high class. I just like the color combination of green and purple a lot. My camaro is going to be white though.

In theory the best color is also the best color for the Zeta Camaro, this website, the clothes your wearing, the walls of your home, and just about anything else you would color. Just pick a color and start arguing.

My favorite color is blue, but since this is a CAR site, I chose Grey because I plan on getting my new Camaro in whatever shade of Grey they offer. Grey hides dirt easily, looks kickass when it's all shined up after a fresh wax job, and looks pretty damn badass with a billet grille and torque thrusts!

I have been all about the grille and wheels today...Whew.

Two of my favorite colors are Purple and Green (along with Silver, White and Black to round out the top 5).

That said, I chose Purple. DARK Purple though, nothing light at all.

Like Mindz said there, Purple is the color of royalty and high class. Purple also looks great when paired with Silver, White or Black. The combination of Green and Purple is a 'love it or hate it' combo. I like it myself. It works well because they, pretty much, 'clash' with each other. One seems to bring out the color of the other and vice versa. In a similar way that complimentary colors do. Red/Green, Yellow/Purple and Orange/Blue. But in a dark and cool (as in temperature) way.

Piece of useless info- The color Purple on the cover of a Horror Novel sells more books than any other color. I forget where I read that. But Purple is a very big 'Horror and Fantasy' color. Maybe that's why Horror and Fantasy are all I read. LOL

Since I doubt they Camaro will have a Dark Purple available, mine will be White or Silver.

Either Hugger Orange with white stripes or a dark grey with black stripes, but it could change when I see color options in person...someday...

Aren't they interchangable? Like I said, my top 5 favorite colors are Purple, Green, White, Black and Silver.

I've owned 2 Teal Green cars, 2 Silver cars and a White truck. I'd gladly purchase a car in deep purple if I could find the right shade.

And the only thing stopping me from ever owning black is the fact that it's only clean for 5 minutes after you wash it and shows every water spot, hairline scratch, etc...

Favorite color #6 is yellow.

I have a different favorite color for different things.

I think the Camaro looks best in the Black/Orange paintjob Dragon chopped for us.

I like the contrasting colors of black and white for home decor, but I would never put it in my home. I like silver or black for appliances. For clothes, I like to have a selection: blue, black, dark green, white, and grey mostly. I like the color red, but I can't think of anything that I'd want to be that color.

If I were to pick the most versatile color, I'd pick grey/silver though. Almost anything can look good in grey or silver. But it's also not all that interesting of a color.

Black

Most people say that they like a dark colour, black is that idea taken to its ultimate conclusion. Black is a no nonsense, it isn't a 'fun' colour. On cars, it is the most popular way to make an impression on someone, be it a black limo, a black muscle car, or those black suburbans we all fear.

That's why you add a secondary color on trim or something to spice it up.

IMO nothing looks better than silver with some highlights of Green, Purple, or Blue.
