I agree with you 100% Draeger. Something about the color black just does it for me visually. I own a Black F350 SuperCrew, black Mazda Speed, Blacked out Thunderbird Storm. My man cave is almost excusively black...i just can't get enough of it, I even prefer to wear black over any other color.

So how far did you follow the pink Harley girl?

I like Carnival Red myself. It is a police magnet. Sort of catchy out of the corner of their eye, while on donut break. Color is a matter of taste and some peoples' taste is all in their mouth. :-) I think the various colors drive about the same, although it is alleged that some colors are faster than others. For those keeping up with trivia, scientists are now looking at the neutrino, which in recent tests appeared to go even faster than the speed of light. I thought Einstein said that was a no no. IF this turns out to be true, then time travel is theoretically possible. Personally, I would hate to go back in time, and have to ride that old Simplex motorbike again, now that I have my Thunderbird. In the interim, I plan to go back in time riding my Thunderbird.

Aha! I can tell you've been riding your TB waaay to fast and without a face guard to boot! It's packing too many oxygen molecules into your brain which explains the very convuluted, heady thinking, and double-entendre laced posting above.
