Yes, I have one now. The only thing I don't like, is that it can be very hot when you first get into it, in the summer.

I used to own a black Schwinn. Does that count? I still have a red Columbia. With baskets. All my four wheeled vehicles have been RED. Including My Little Red Wagon. Which I still own.

From my pre-on-my-own experience with black cars, I have never purchased a black car.

Given my experience with silver cars, I've bought one and decided never to buy one again. Not enough contrast between the silver car and wet pavement. Never was hit, but that was because I was very cautious and almost always drove with the lights on when it was rainy.

My vehicles have been blue, silver, red, red, green, blue, blue, and blue.
