    I don't actually drive a car, but it would have to be pink if I did.

    What colour car do you have?

    Metallic grey. My favourite of all my cars was a red one.

    Hope that helps.

    On the two occasions that I've bought a new car, I have opted for red ones, although I'm not really bothered. The car we have now is a lovely tomato soup colour; if feel as if I want to dip a spoon in and taste it.

    I'd always thought my car to be a rather dull grey colour.
    But according to "Homes Under the Hammer" this shade, in interior design at least, is known as "Reindeer"
    This simple re designation means that I now feel that I own a much more modish and stylish conveyance

    I have a little purple car. I was just cleared for driving by the doctor. I can't wait to get back to it.

    My curent car is "midnight blue" . I do have to say it isn't a blue I recognise as I wouldn't chose blue as a rule. It looks a grey to me. Anyway ...academic as have chosen my new car and it is "magnetic" - again a greyish colour.
    I don't like the current Ford red - I do consider the maroon Ford Mondeo colour to be my luckiest colour as that car saved my life in a crash......

    I don't like Fords of whatever colour.

    My car is what you might call gunmetal, but I really wanted the dark (British Racing) green.

    My husband's new Ford Fiesta is Deep Impact Blue. It's like the foil wrapped round Cadbury's chocolate.

    Mine is metallic Aquatic Blue bit like a Kingfisher and I love it. There were too many black, white and silver cars when I got it and I wanted something different. There seem to be a lot more similar shades around now than when I got it over 3 years ago.

    Mine's a sort of chalky grey-brown colour.

    Underneath that it's silver.

    Must go to the car wash!

    The first car I drove after passing my test was bottle green ( a Morris Isis - almost unknown to anyone these days but I loved that car to bits) The first car I owned was a Vauxhall Victor estate again bottle green. I have never ever owned another green car.... and they do seem rare now.

    @jacob That Ford Mondeo was hit by an XJS Jag coming through the air at me him having left the M56 at 103mph before hitting my Ford on the slip road...... Although hit on the rear passenger door it was enough to send me spinning down what was left of the embankment onto the inside lane of the M way. The fact that there wasn't any other vehicle in that lane and that the Ford took a heck of a hit and remained on its wheels keep me very loyal to Ford.

    Bright red! I didn't want a red car when I went looking but the price was right. And I can be seen.

    Mine is a similar colour to a high-viz jacket. I didn't choose it for the colour, but I don't mind it. It makes it easier to avoid crashing into.

    Silver, but if I could really choose:

    Who in their right mind drives a car of the hue known as "hearing aid beige"? I saw two Fiat 500s in this shade today. Shudder.
