Colour finalised!

In continuation of what colour to choose from wed, April 23 post.

Really appreciate all your comments... I am so fickle minded I wish I had a wand to change the colour as I like when I like it so I won't be in this dilemma.

I would choose black. It looks sooo yeah chic, elegant and sexy. BUT I got no time to maintain that colour all the time. As Sue and Mae mentioned. I agree. Ben had a black Celica once. He wrote "Rachel, Clean me!" on it.. hahah I can happen imagine that it will happen again with black.

Champagne seems like my most favourite colour. However the skirting is an awkward colour. If it would be champagne all the way I would jump on that colour. Unfortunately not. In addition to that imagine me waiting an extra 3 to 4 weeks for the car to arrive. My baby would pop out before I can drive the car, and there goes the joy of driving the car for a month. Uwaaaaaaaa....

Silver the least loved colour will be my choice. Hah. Why is it my unfavourite colour? Not because it is common but that I think it is a cold colour. However I need a change of atmosphere. I need a new look anyway. Having changed from a vibrant naughty singleton to a serious lecturing mother. Ahemmmm! "Perasan tai". I think I would get used to it. Besides I see myself in champagne colour for only about the next 3 years of which I will change into the silver. A more settled colour, composed, safer driver with a tendency to criticize other drivers (I laugh at this last description).

Today, it is believed that the color of your car speaks volumes about your personality and driving habits. Business people would choose cars with darker colors, buses and truck drivers like lighter colors, and sports cars drivers often choose cars with strong staring colors.
From Wikipedia:

"A Swedish study found pink cars safest, with black cars most likely to be involved in crashes (Land transport NZ 2005)."

"An Auckland, New Zealand studies found a significantly lower risk of serious injury in silver cars; with high risks for brown, black, and green cars. (Furness et al, 2003)"

So, according to psychologists,

cars denote those who are full of zest, energy and drive, brave, ambitious and impatient characters, who also think, move and talk quickly. The color red is a synonym for sex, speed, thoroughness and dynamism.

Brown or orange color denotes those who are practical, independent and who like to race. These colors represent sensibleness, time and simplicity.

Yellow cars describe someone who is idealistic and novelty loving, and who is also intelligent and warm.

Green cars indicate someone who is careful and unsociable, but also has hysterical tendencies.

Blue cars are chosen by the imaginative, loyal, and trustworthy people.

Pink cars are chosen by gentle, loving and affectionate drivers. Pink represents creativity and individuality.

Silver and grey cars describe someone who is cool, calm, and slightly aloof and who is prone to criticizing other drivers.

Black cars are chosen by stubborn, disciplined people, who like classic cars and elegance. They are not easy to manipulate.

White cars represent status-seeking, extrovert drivers, who are also optimistic, simple and who you can rely upon.
