2012 Toyota Prius C: Color Crazy

October 5, 2012

This morning in the middle school drop-off loop, a couple of 7th grade girls yelled, "We love your car color!"

Didn't surprise me. Our Prius C is just their shade of shocking tween turquoise.

The brief color conversation reminded me of when my Grandma bought her first new car, must have been at least 30 years ago now. She didn't get her driver's license until she was in her early 60s, after my Grandpa passed away. Until then, he did all the driving, and she never felt the need.

The first car she purchased on her own was a gold Ford Tempo. After she brought it home, I remember her fretting about her color choice.

"I should have bought the silver," she said. "The gold clashes with my white hair."

Why did you choose the color of your car?
