I like blue on a lot of cars, but I don't think I'd ever buy one in that color. When I had a blue WRX for a short time I started to get sick of the color after just a couple weeks. It was my favorite color by far of all the available options when I was choosing it, but I guess I just got sick of looking at it or something. When I graduate and get a new car, it will probably be black, white, charcoal, or some dark color like that simply because I can't really get tired of those colors.

I wanted a blue car all my life. When I finally got one with the Rabbit (the powder blue Buick doesn't count), and it's a particularly nice blue too, I found it's just not as nice owning as it is in wishing. It's still nice but just not that exciting.

I'd still get another car in blue, though.

I had a blue car. Though I'd like the color. I didn't...

Since then, I haven't seen a car I'd get in blue. Just don't like it.

I probably already said this before, but man your wheels are beautiful. Kinda like the Ford GT wheels.
