2013 Ford Focus ST: Big Bird or Lemon Meringue?
August 23, 2013
I think it's somehow appropriate for an otherwise under-the-radar car like the Focus ST to be painted Tangerine Scream. I'd certainly pick it in lieu of yet another black, white or gray car.
Now, yellow is obviously not everyone's cup of Earl Grey, but people do buy them, and there seems to be two general shades of yellow applied to cars. One, like Tangerine Scream, is a darker shade I shall refer to as "Big Bird." The other, seen here on a Porsche 911, is more akin to a lemon meringue pie.
I usually prefer the latter, but if you were to buy a yellow car, would you fancy Big Bird or lemon meringue?
