It never striked me but this is so true. The 80s were so colourful. And anything from future and even scifi are just metallic and shiny or carbon fibre and dull.

Also, White is a typical fleet vehicle color. Partly due to the fact it doesn’t show dirt as much.

At this rate, anything in the future will be painted white. I'd much rather continue driving some old "rust bucket" V8 than your generic sporty looking sedan or hatchback.

Resale value is probably the biggest factor, because the people doing the reselling often aren't even the drivers, but dealers. Because cars are so much more reliable than they used to be, there's not as much incentive to buy new anymore. So most people who want a new car _don't_ buy one; they lease it. So it's the dealer who's saddled with the task of pawning it off on someone in a year or two. Of _course_ they're going to be minmaxing for resale value.

I love this channel , but why are you perpetuating the red car myth. I work for an insurance company and we don't even see what color the car is on a policy.

Insurance payments cost more if you have a red car compared to another model of that car in the same condition but in a less flashy color.
What basis do they have to justify higher payments?
"We have ummm... Some research that suggests flashy colors are pick by people who drive recklessly. So we have to cover their but more often and therefore should change their price to reflect that."
Like, bro are you for real? Do you really gotta nickel and dime me for any small change on my car? Are you gonna start taking where i live into account? My famiies driving history? The colour of my skin?

For me, it was a lack of choice. If I could've found a red car I wanted, I would've bought red. Silver SUCKS. But, it's where I am.

Gonna have to ask for a source on those insurance claims. I have a red truck, and my insurance company didn't even ask for the color. As for cop magnet, this is in no way a provable statement. As an anecdote, my first car was a dark red convertible mustang, and I'm currently in a bright red f150. The only time I've ever been stopped was to double check my registration sticker. Car colors are not cop magnets. Speeding nutjobs are.

I'm waiting for matte paint to become a more popular option. Even boring colors look absolutely amazing in matte, gloss black? Ew. Metallic white? Meh. Matte black? Yes please. Matte white? Even MORE yes please.

The real reason car colors were muted during WWII -- there weren't ANY civilian cars built during the war; the total production went to the military, so olive drab and navy blue.
