My wife and I are driving in the truck and a yellow Corvette passes us. I'm like, "Wow! I love that color yellow on that 'Vette." My wife says, "I can't stand yellow sportscars." I ask why and she says, "A yellow sportscar says: Look at me! I am trying to grab attention and I have a small penis!"

So the first thing that pops into my head because I have a red 308 is, "Well what does a red sportscar say?" She said, "A red sportscar says you have some money."

So there you go guys. The women's perspective.

Red = fat wallet
Yellow = small penis

Don't remind me. You know that almost all the arguments in a marriage are about either sex or money.

I showed my wife this post and she got a kick out of it. I got the scoop on the other colors also:

Yellow - You have a small penis
Red - You have money
Blue - You have kids
White - You are gay
Green - You are a bachelor. Probably a hunter or fisherman.
Black - You are a bad-ass
Silver - You are retired
Brown - You could only afford this color
Purple - You have a multiple personality disorder or mid-life crisis
Gold (or Champagne) - You are classy (that's the color of my wife's car.)
Orange - You are older than my wife and refer to it as "Hugger Orange"

If you have one with a racing stripe you are probably divorced.
If you only have the key ring but not the car, you are definately divorced, have kids or you are a teenager.

And she says to remember that these only apply to sportscars. Male sportscar owners, for females it is totally different (of course).

I did get some of the scoop on sportscar colors for girls:

Yellow - You married a man with money and a small penis
Red - You have money
Brown - You got it in the divorce

I would disagree with the assertion or consensus that yellow is but chosen by those who is fun-loving and cheerful. I think red is more popularly representative of the mid-age crises: money or not!
I actually would enjoy having a yellow or red sportscar or pick-up [need a tow vehicle for car and horse trailers] !
Lastly, I believe silver is typically prefered by self-confident, successful, dashing and well-endowed married Texans who also pack Walther PPKs with mother-of-pearl grips! :lol: :lol: :lol: 8)

Well then I'm retired even though I haven't been working for a year yet.
But my car is really more a silverish blue.
So now I'm retired with kids. :-?

This color-personality equation is from a typical, thirty-something, married female Yankee; so if you are a self-confident, successful, dashing and well-endowed married Texan who also packs a Walther PPK, I think you can safely disregard this post and buy any color car you want. :green:

Matt,
With a silver-blue Audi, the girl's parents are going to love you. You gotta get in good with the folks and you, my friend, have just the car to do it.

If your car was red or yellow, the parents would hate you. They wouldn't trust you the moment you pulled in the drive. But silver, that says, "Mature" and they will love you. (Get the red one later)

I have given you the women's point of view, its up to you to work it! :green:

Actually I'm thinking about getting a black car which would make me a bad ass.
Would that go over well with the parents?


J/K a black car is too hard to maintain

Yeah, for you, I think black would attract the wrong kind of attention. Remember, there are female cops out there also who think bad asses drive black cars. Silver is a nice safe color. Easy to maintain, won't get you in trouble.

Honestly, though, I am a newcomer to a small rural town and was afraid to be seen driving a Ferrari so I thought silver would be low key. When I first saw the car at the dealer I was floored and realized that it probably doesn't matter what color any Ferrari is. I since have gotten comfortable with being seen around in the car and have found that if you make eye contact with people and wave, they wave back 8)

Jungathart,
The silver does look stunning on your car. But I think my wife's assessment of color fits you too. Silver means retired which also means mature, low-key, isn't trying to impress anyone with a flashy car.

But I do know what you mean about having a flashy car in a small town. I get mostly positive reactions. I've talked to people I don't know for a half hour in the parking lot of the general store and had a good time.

You nailed it on the silver. I bought my silver 330 2+2 thinking I would be working for another eight years but I ended up retiring a year after I bought it. The car must have known something I didn't. :green:

In regard to penises , I guess silver could also mean one that's due for a rebuild.
