10 Vehicle Colors for New Parents

Car companies are doing some pretty crazy things in this economy to attract new buyers.

So, I thought I'd do my part to help try and spur the economy on while simulataneosly offering some free color advice to car companies.

They already have some whack-a-doodle colors like Corn Silk Beige (VW), Anaconda Green (Dodge), Hot Chocolate (Mini), Grigio Nuvolari (Maserati), Ipanema Sand (Land Rover), and the unforgettable Mango Tango Pearl (Jeep).

Here's are 10 family-friendly colors I propose for 2011 and beyond. Take note, Ford & GM.

10 Vehicle Colors for New Parents

  • Fruit Snack (Sweet Red)
  • Week Old Milk (Chunky White)
  • Pampers (Mellow Yellow)
  • Goldfish (Cheese Orange)
  • Sleepless (Blurred Gray)
  • Stack o' Laundry (Multi-colored Mash-up)
  • Melted Kiss (Chocolate Brown)
  • Sippy-a-licious (Juice Purple)
  • 2am Feeding (Pitch Black)
  • Boogie Woogie (Snot Green)


  1. I love it! I could actually see certain car companies (looking at you, Mini) using colors like "Fruit Snack" and "Sleepless." Great post!


  2. @ Tim: Thought it might be right up your alley. :D

  3. Totally HILARIOUS!! You better submit those color ideas!!!--Julia

  4. Awesome! We actually painted the girls' bathroom last year, and we allowed Natalie to choose the color from about 5 selections (that coordinated with their monkey shower curtain). She picked Mac & Cheese (which matched the bananas, of course) It's a real color, and it lives up to the name! Fun post!

  5. @ Julia: They should pay me for this kind of wisdom, no?

    @ Kelli: At a forensics meet in Bad Axe in high school this kid Jimmy was all about the Mac & Cheese colored crayon. Why my brain has retained all of those particulars, I'll never know--but I'm kind of ashamed of my brain right now.

  6. Boogie Woogie and Week Old Milk are my favorite!! Haha, my stomach physically cringed at the thought of chunky white! How true to our life these are!

  7. @Crazy Me: Isn't a misplaced cup of milk the worst thing to discover?! Makes me gag every. single. time.
