though not lending itself to yellow, the new hard-top 3-series vertible is looking like a pretty hot compromise. http://tinyurl.com/vegu9 (hit the play button twice if doesn't play on 1st click.) don't know where it will be priced. i'm hoping for $50k. should be out this spring.

The safest color is actually is that bright orange. There is a trucking company called 'Yellow' that uses orange trucks!!! Why? Because the owner found out that it was orange and wanted his trucks painted the safest color... at least that is what they said on the TV show where I saw it

Re: Car Dilemna............

My friend who owns a motorcyle clothing and accessories company says that lime yellow is the highest visibility color.



I have a blaze orange helmet but no lime yellow yet.

We used to have all the primary colors represented in our garage, but I had to sell Old Yeller to make some room for other toys. I miss her.

Sadly my baby is wrapped up for the winter. With our winters here in Chicago she spends November - March / April under cover and in the garage.
