    REALLY liked the Blizzard Pearl but have had a white Ford van for 10 years and was tired of white. Sorta wish I had gotten the BP white now because we live on the end of a 1 mile long dirt road...sometimes hard to find my Blue car in a parking lot in town when the rear end is dusty brown!

    For the 2007: 46 Male Silver Pine Mica (first and only choice)

    For the 2010: 48 Male Blue Ribbon Metallic (first choice, but only just ahead of Blizzard Pearl, even though I've NEVER liked white cars)

    I never considered the red colors, because our Sienna is Salsa Red. I would have preferred a green color -- not because of the "green" factor, but because green is my favorite color.

    34 - Silver - 1st choice as I really didn't care for any of the colors so I picked Silver since it's easy to keep clean.

    I think this a sneaky way of finding out everyone's age, but I'll bite (and pull down the average age for the sandy beach). :)

    38 Gold (don't have mine yet so I might end up with my 2nd choice, red)

    I'm 35, with a black T Spirit on order. Would have gone for white, but my wife said I'd look like a pimp. (White cars are only just coming back into fahion in the UK)

    The only thing this is telling me is that the young bucks like black, but the older and wiser you get you discover that silver is it!

    I had a black car in my younger days, and the front would get dusty again while I was still drying off the back. And it was hot in the winter and unbearably hot in the summer.

    My silver looks good all the time, and seems to, relatively, not get too heated up when sitting in the hot sun for a while.

    So what was your original theory, and what do these data points tell you, SureValla?

    I'm 34. Blue was my first choice. I got Silver, which was my choice #2.
    Either way, I lower the mean. Hee hee.

    I'm gonna get a few more responses to make this statistically valid and for more ppl to get a chance to respond. Look for a final results tomorrow night with my theory revealed haha.
