It's too late on a Sunday evening to think about this one deeply, but of one thing I am fairly sure, green must be about the least popular colour for almost any full-size car. This is strange when green is such a predominant colour in nature or maybe this is the reason, a rebellion against natural colours? There really aren't many green cars about on the roads - I wonder if anyone involved with selling cars can confirm this?

QUOTE There are real national differences too, mostly due to weather I think.
Yes, sunshine or lack of it makes a huge difference.
I noticed in California that there were far more cars of subtle, pastel colours than in UK. In the bright light, you can really SEE these subtleties, whereas in duller climes, like ours, they tend to fade into dull, insipid, almost nothingness, especially in winter.

QUOTE I think people still see green as an unlucky colour!
This seems to be the case, but no one can tell me WHY it might be considered 'unlucky'. Any offers on this one?

Yellow is another 'odd' colour. The manufacturers re-introduce the yellow option at fairly long intervals and you see a bunch around for a while - you probably see them more prominently because it IS a more prominent colour. Then yellow goes out of fashon for about ten years and the numbers on the roads fade to almost nothing, until the next repeat of the cycle. Whereas most other colours are available all the time. That's my observation in UK - it could be different elsewhere.
