What do you think about when buying a car? Make, model, spec, obviously. Price – goes without saying. But there’s another factor that might say more about you than any choice of brand. What colour car do you usually choose? This is a multi-hued issue that goes way beyond blue for boys and pink for girls. With so many colours of car now on our roads, what does your choice say about you? White Once the preserve of vans, white has had a resurgence in recent years thanks in part to the popularity of sleek Apple products. Today’s white cars have a minimalist feel that, allied to lashings of chrome, looks slick and contemporary. It goes without saying, then, that if you drive a white car, you’re a bit of a neat freak. You’ve probably catalogued your DVD collection. You’re possibly very up-front and honest, too. Nothing wrong with any of that. Next. Professions: Architect, planner, designer.
