From that accountant's site:

What does your car say to your clients ? (http://www.accountingweb.co.uk/anyanswers/what-does-your-car-say-your-clients/481964)

My roller skate is black:


Black: The choice of a serious, self-confident sophisticate. First choice of the ambitious and success-driven who see cars as status symbols.


Ambitious? :rollin:


The Toyota is silver:


Silver: You have great style and are often successful - but you tend to be pompous

Pompous, moi?

My M Roadster is black.

But I'm selling it to buy the X5 4.8is. Colour to be determined shortly, but I like silver.

My Toyota is silver as well. Sounds about right.

Mine is purple, which is red + blue :


# Blue: You like consistency in your life. You're likely to be conservative, shy, and introverted.

# RED: You're outgoing and impulsive, but easily bored. On the bright side, you think and stay young.

Yeah, that sums me up rather well "conservative, shy, and introverted", but at the same time "outgoing and impulsive, but easily bored" :smokin

If I were to stop mickey taking for a minute, I'd probably say it's all relative to size in terms of the figures.

But that's boring, so - I can say it quite easily; can you give me a trim a week Saturday?

Blue: You like consistency in your life. You're likely to be conservative, shy, and introverted. A team player who's sociable and friendly but lacking in imagination.

My car is silver. What it says about me is that I'm too lazy to wash it as silver always looks clean. And that when I bought it, silver was the most common and therefore cheapest colour.

SueEllen

WHS

I got the blue one because I'm a cheap skate and don't like washing my car. I had a silver one before that but this time the silver one was more expensive.

I had metallic silver in the 80s and 90s.


# Metallics: Chosen by confidant yet understated extroverts.
# Silver: You have great style and are often successful - but you tend to be pompous.

Present motor is dark blue, but I was after the same thing in black.

sasguru's choice of colour probably means that he is confident in his sexuality (whatever that is). You, however, have an apparent need to 'point the finger' at others.

My big car is green: "A hot fashion color that puts an emphasis on the environment, but the deeper the green, the more conservative and traditional person you are."

My small car is red: "You're outgoing and impulsive, but easily bored. On the bright side, you think and stay young."

I must be schizophrenic.

By his own admission, SB is one of those 70 mph middle-lane hoggers which indicates he's a senile old fart, too slow-witted to cope with the cut and thrust of motorway driving.
Hence his need to denigrate the more manly and dashing, motorbike-riding, cooler members of the congregation.

Purple was the only colour they had of the model I wanted.

I couldn't very well ask them to scrape off all the paint and respray it black or something, could I?

Anyway it's more of a plum colour.

Move to raise motorway limit to 80mph 'will boost economy' - UK Politics, UK - The Independent (http://www.independent.co.uk/news/uk/politics/move-to-raise-motorway-limit-to-80mph-will-boost-economy-2227581.html)

This would never happen under Labour who I believe were looking into imposing a 50mph limit on all motorways to cut CO2.

It was a sort of matt green, though T-Cut brought back the gloss on the bits I tried.

I would have needed gallons of the stuff to do the whole car.
