  3. Red cars never got much love from me in my youth because the paint oxidized so easily. That does not seem ro be an issue with the reds today. Too bad I like BRG and GRS.

  5. Love them all! Am currently restoring my Red 1988 Volkswagen "New Beetle". Many many miles on it but keeping it as the fun weekend car.

    1. Ooops, the year was 1998. Seems as though I've had the car since God was a boy however. My mistake!

  11. Whenever I see an MG TD or TF I think of Oliver Barrett III in Love Story! His however I believe was British Racing Green.

  12. These all remind me of my college days, although I don't recall any Porsches. But there were several MGBs, Midgets, Austin-Healey's and the odd Jaguar. I don't recall the colors especially but one bug-eye Sprite was finished in primer grey. That town now boasts a Morgan dealer.

    1. Your mention of the bug-eye sprite brought back a funny story.

      One day, my older brother's friend took a bug-eye sprite out for a test drive. Unfortunately, there was no oil in the engine, and so by the time he returned it, the car was totally shot -- ruined.

      The Austin-Healy dealer was not amused.

  13. Vintage cars look great in red particularly zooming through Vermont in late October. Outside of that red cars are a beacon for radar detectors. Happy Driving!

  14. A red '60s Morgan +4 is the car of my desire.

  15. The MG used in the movie "Love Story" was a black MG TC model owned by a fellow on Long Island who, according to his daughter, actually drove it to New England for the filming.
