    Red face Just silly... Yellow vehicles

    Okay, yeah, I'm a chick and I know very little about cars. (I'm always pointing out cars and asking my dad what kind it is. Haha)

    That aside, after watching Transformers I'm always noticing yellow cars more. Silly, I know, but I honestly have a hard time ignoring the yellow Camaro that I see when I drive home from school.

    Has anyone else gotten this "yellow fever?"

    Yellow is the most recognizable color besides red. Its a fact. Paint a car black, white, gray, booger, turd, or lightsaber purple and the first car you will see is either the red or yellow. Not just cars but it goes for just about everything. Color theory is kinda neat.

    Don't worry. I've got a red (and blue rig) fever too. Welcome to the boards.

    back in high school, I wanted a Yellow Dodge Ram with black racing strips.

    Back in HS I wanted a Yellow Dodge Viper with racing stripes.

    Right across from the H.S. was this big ass house with a guy who had one. Also down the ways an emerald green convertible one.

    Welcome to the boards!

    Another interesting fact about vehicle colors.....

    Cars painted red will statistically get pulled over by cops more than cars of any other color. No real explanation...just police phsycology!

    I like the similarities it has with Tarantino's Kill Bill trilogy.

    But then I'm weird. A weird chick that is.

    I use a knife because guns are too quick. Otherwise, you can't savor all the emotions. You know who people are in their last moments.

    I believe whatever doesn't kill you simply makes you... stranger.

    Yeah, that's way cabs are yellow. Don't give in to the yellow fixation-- highway patrol will be on your end with speeding tickets, my friend! Although, for some reason the Little Red Hatcback of Imminent Peril is immune to cops. Even when I was drag racing*, it's weird.

    I have been on the lookout for the Transformers, though. I think it would be awesome to see a yellow Camaro in person, even if it wasn't the actual Bumblebee.

    *strictly recreational and now completely over. don't want to ruin my immunity streak!

    I have seen a couple of yellow Mustangs with the black racing stripes...of which I have dubbed Bumblemustang.

    Actually, I do have a picture....somewhere....in my large amount of e-mail. Ahh, I love gmail. Unlimited space....so many capabilities. *shakes head*

    Oh yeah, Bumblemustang:

    nothing wrong with a little drag racing, as long a you know there's no one in front of you !You go girl!

    It's the street racers who literally make public roads into road courses that fuck things up for everyone....weaving in and out of other cars, and taking hard corners

    Oh, absolutely. Safety is the most important thing, especially at 2 and 3am when people may be wandering out of bars (which were a street over and where all the cops were loitering, trying to catch DUIs). But yeah, come to the light at Arquello, signal or get the signal and allll the lights down to the water turn green at once. Awesome stuff, especially if my opponent is on a bike because they are seriously bad-ass crazy !

    Awww, you have to sign in to see it! Rats!

    I do share a little of the yellow car lust, I admit. Everytime this baby visits I have to go hug it a little...



    Oh Lamborghini, you're like an abusive boyfriend who also happens to be fabulous in bed! Damn you all to hell!
