    I like this guy.

    My first, current, and thus far only car is Cotillon White on Shale. I love white cars. They look so nice.

    Re: What Color is Your Ride?

    I've only had two white cars, a 1975 Chrysler Cordoba which was white with an emerald green landau top (complete with opera lights), and emerald green "Corinthian" leather seats and interior all set off by tasteful gold pinstriping, and a white 1978 Dodge Diplomat wagon with vinyl, simulated wood applique on the sides and "tobac" real leather seats and interior. Both cars looked great when freshly cleaned and polished, but didn't look so great when they got a few months on their wax job. Not as bad as black, but not as good as several other colors.

    Yeah I had a dealer try to sell me leather from a spoiled cow by calling it Corinthian green.

    and a white 1978 Dodge Diplomat wagon
    I think they only built white and creme '78s for the public. Based on real world sightings all other colors were one-offs just for the brochure pictures.

    Black on Black which looks amazing when it's shiny, but it sure is alot of work to keep it looking clean. That's why I always cover it in my garage.

    My two Corvairs were white - one with a puke green bench seat interior; the turbo Spyder had a decent pleated red vinyl bucket interior.

    My first car was a white '62 Corvair. The interior was some nondescript charcoal.

    LOL....Reminds me of the '87 Grand National that I had. When someone would ask "can you get in any other colors?" My answer would be "sure....you can have it any shade, so long as it's black". The thing that I hated about that car was that it was a dude magnet, and not a chick magnet. Almost any place I went to, a guy would approach me and say "Is that a Grand National?" while looking straight at the logo.

    That is funny. Nothing like Cranial / Rectal Disconnectivity.

    Yeah, they were probably just trying to start a conversation, but that is a more fitting description that you gave. Then they would go on to talk about their cousins brothers sisters nephew who had one, but it had the "upgraded twin turbo V8" option, and not the "standard turbo V6". This tended to happen alot at the Checkers Auto Parts parking lot.

    If "blonde" is in reference to intelligence rather than hair color, then the answer is yes. BTW, is your Syclone stock?
