What color is your car?

The current poll on our website is “What color is your car?” “Is there a reason why?” The answers have been sometimes amusing, others informative and sometimes sad. What I’ve found generally is that for most, it’s the color of the car they ended up buying. Whether it was due to price constraints or because of the particular model sought.

Here are some of the answers. The first line would be the color. The second, the reason why.

  1. Ocean Blue
    1. Blue is my favorite color
  2. Yachting Blue Metalic
    1. It looks great on a 911
  3. Black
    1. Because Orange is Rare
  4. Ivory
    1. It’s beautiful
  5. Meteor Gray
    1. It’s not too flashy and not likely to out of style
  6. Mocha Black
    1. Because it was the car in my price range. 1st Porsche ever
  7. Black
    1. No
  8. Pathetic white metallic
    1. Apparently Porsche hasn’t paid any attention to what other manufacturers do with their white metallic paint.
  9. Lapis Blue
    1. What other color would you want.

Our very own Al Price (Concours Chair) received this from PCA.

His Car, a 1977 911S which was basically a barn find evolved. In his words;

The car is a 1977 Porsche 911S, someone added the rear RS flares. I found the car in Auburn at Renntech, it was sitting for four years with no engine or trans and two inches of water inside, I did the deal and towed the vehicle to the shop and in a month and a half drove it to Easy in the bay area. ( Super fun) I have auto crossed the car, tracked it & it does the Zone 7 Concours series which it won second overall this year. I drive the car about 5000 miles a year to all of the events I do. The car is a Hot Rod and a Rally Car look and pure fun!!

Congratulations Al!
