    What Color is Your Ride?

    My CTS is Silver. I have always thought Silver to be strong with the personality of resolution and leadership.

    I wonder what the popular colors are and have been for Cadillac's over the last 3 decades.

    Black. Like my heart.

    My Mack is black with a dark grey and black interior.

    My Cadillac is black with a burgundy interior, accented by the wood and chrome parts.

    My Pontiac is black with a black Leather interior. They looked ugly most of the time they had any other interior anyhow.

    My Triumph is black. With lots of chrome.

    The two Furds I cannot count, because I do not personally use them, as they are fleet vehicles. The second one was purchased sight unseen and this only happened because I heard about it, due to the fact that it was the same colour combo as the first. They are both the same shade of blue with tan interiors.

    My Chevrolet, I cannot count as it was my Father's car. It has a black interior, which is admirable. It is however the same bright red that people tend to associate with Chevy cars from that era.

    My Lincoln was blue with a white top. Nobody, not even me, ever knew how or why. Somehow, it had a white leather interior. Strange indeed. Of course, after the carbombing, much of these problems were fixed and it became a respectable colour...like black...

    I could replace it with a triple black one any time I want, as there are three in my area for sale, all between $2,000 and $5,000. Not likely, as I am not looking to replace it.Whatever I purchase next will most likely be...black.

    Re: What Color is Your Ride?

    I think that the colors favored for Cadillacs had a lot to do with the neighborhood the original owner lived in. When I was in my teenage years on the East Coast it seemed that dark gray (dubbed "snob appeal gray" by my waggish roommate) or dark metallic green ..... very few light colors. In California where I sent my earlier and later years lighter colors in pastel shades were more the order of the day.

    I will say that for that last couple of decades the colors offered , with a few exceptions, have been dull, dull, dull! Cadillac did seem to "spice" things up a bit with their "opalescent" colors with the extra cost white and red being very popular.

    It has been awhile since Cadillac offered a fire engine red for any of its' cars. The last time I remember bright red being offered it was on the Eldorado Collector's Edition back in 2002. I have seen a few 4th generation Sevilles in bright red, but I have never been sure if they were a factory option.

    Re: What Color is Your Ride?

    ^agreed! black is my personal favorite.

    '04 s10 crewcab black/graphite int.(closest thing to black GM offered in a S-series)
    '01 s10 extended cab Olympic white/graphite int.
    '00 Sonoma extended cab dark cherry metallic/graphite int.
    '99 s10 regular cab,regular bed Summit white/graphite int.
    '97 s10 extended cab black/graphite int.
    '96 Blazer LT 4door black/graphite int.

    The 97 originally had light grey interior,and I changed it. dash,carpet,seats,every single plastic part down to the screw for the jack cover. if I could paint they'd all be black too

    I have a few parts/non drivable trucks also,but they don't count.

    The '91 Accord is light green. Ivory interior.

    The '94 Town Car was dark blue, with a matching full carriage top. Dark beige interior.

    The '97 SLS was white diamond. Shale interior.

    The '87 Chevette coupe was bright red, with matching interior.

    My fleetwood brougham is cream with a firemist brown top, cream leather, and brown and orange pinstriping. I'm not sure who thought that was a good color combo (kinda weird because it was a fleet car for 3 years and it's a non recommended color combo IIRC), but I like it- it's unique.
