What color is the worse looking Camaro color dirty?

So been a lot of rain in my area for the past week so I can understand not washing your car but the strangest thing happened. I actually for the first time saw a Camaro and said to myself wow that is really ugly. Of course owning a Camaro I love the looks but this one particularly between the color and dirt just didnt look good. Not to offend anybody's color choice because after I got out my car and really looked at it with the layer of dirt on it realized mine didnt look too much better, it was better but not by much. So just for fun what color looks the worse dirty.

I would say black looks the worst when dirty, but nothing looks better then a shiny clean black car. However, I don't have it in me to own another black vehicle, so I went Cyber Grey. Turns out Cyber Grey isn't a whole lot easier to keep clean!

I don't know if it's a question of what color looks worse when it's dirty, but of which one shows the dirt more. Having owned both black and white vehicles, I'd say those two colors show dirt more than others. I think any Camaro looks good any time!

White shows dirt very easily. Although dust doesn't show up that much, but as soon as it rains my car is done for. The dust that settled collects in little rain droplets and if they dry, I get a polka-dot car.

My vote Black. Its the most beautiful color... for 5 minutes, (if it is outside), then it will show dust. Forget about it if you live in a pollen area cause it will be yellow.

Black is the worst, and there is no easy quick cleanup on a black vehicle without streaks. Beautiful color when cleaned and freshly waxed but a major PIA

I would say black looks the worst when dirty but it is also looks the best when clean and waxed. I also say any car thats dirty looks bad. Just one other point: If you wash your car and don't clean the tires, wheels and windows, you might as well leave the car dirty.

yea mix pollen along with it. its not bad if its just a little but if your car is covered in pollen and then it rains and your car is underneath a tree it friken sucks. i hate pollen

Black without a doubt...but like everyone has said, when clean it's beautiful! Just a trade off you deal with.

Never had a white car but sure that would be a bear to keep clean too! Would hide dust pretty good though I'd think?

My choice was RJT. Like it clean but dirty does no justice to it
