And the most popular car color is...

By

Ford Explorer in white

...white.

According to paint manufacturer PPG Industries, white has surpassed silver as the most popular shade of paint for new cars.

White? Silver? Really, America? Am I the only one who likes colorful cars? I understand preserving resale value, etc., etc., but come on. (For the record, my own cars are green, blue and red with a hood that was once black but is now covered in surface rust.)
