Default RANT:I hate silver

You heard it. I hate Silver on a car.

It's such a dull, boring color. And I know the main reason like 90% of people buy silver is because it's easy to take care of, swirls don't show up easily, dirt doesn't effect the look too much either.

I haven't Dynoed it yet, but I'll estimate around 280-300RWHP.

heh heh, my daily driver is silver, but I didn't buy it for the color, I was just looking for a reliable car to get to work and back each day.

nice part about that color is it is not very noticeable, so if I speed I don't get any unnecessary attention.

Unfortunately blue stripes on white is a pretty significant attention grabber lol

SRT: dang those blue stripes

Can't say the cops are too interested in a dark green Blazer 4 door always a good thing.

In BC I don't think they take into account things like that when it comes to insurance. It costs less to insure my 87 Camaro then my moms 87 4WD Bronco. Though the Camaro is a V6, and the Bronco is a V8.
