One of the perils of the consumer society is choice. When you can choose whatever you want, your personal taste is for ever on display. Nowhere is this more evident than in the colour of your car.

Not many people have orange cars, which is odd, because orange is everyone's favourite fruit. But with a car, orange subliminally makes you think squash and crush, and you don't want either of those in a car.

Yellow is more popular, but only just. Again, it's a fruit thing. No one wants to be seen driving a lemon. Research shows that yellow is the safest colour for a car, but you never see a yellow Volvo, so something's not right there.

Black cars are bought by people who wear sunglasses when driving. That's because black is cool. Unless, that is, the car has a glass compartment at the back and seating for four sombre gentlemen, in which case those in the car are so cool, they're dead. People who buy black cars are ambitious, sophisticated, self-sufficient and strong-willed.

Red is the most popular colour, for several reasons. First, red is sexy. Having a red car is like wearing your lingerie on the outside: it says I'm a fast-living, fast-loving, fast-moving individual. It means that you'd be driving a Ferrari if it weren't for minor budgetary constraints. The other explanation for the popularity of red cars is that a lot of people are secretly pretending to be Postman Pat. If you own a red car, you are very outgoing, energetic, and a go-getter who likes attention.

A person who drives a blue car is calm, secure, loyal and people-oriented, and among the happiest drivers on the road. The description of blue is something I am unable to comprehend - the owners of blue cars that I know of hardly fit the above description, which is why we have very few blue cars on our roads.

White cars are for people who like to wash their car more than they like to drive it. White cars look smart and cool in the same way that white suits look smart and cool - unless you're from Del Monte, avoid them. White means a very private person, perhaps on the shy side, and a loner.

There aren't quite so many green cars about. Big green cars are driven by people who think they're driving an old Blower Bentley in British Racing Green. They are a nurturing peacemaker and least likely of all drivers to lose their temper at others on the road. Say no more…

Silver cars are the colour of the moment. They say that you're cool without being pretentious, ambitious without being flash, and that you're only one car away from a Mercedes.

Purple cars are the opposite: not cool, not going anywhere and your next vehicle is likely to be a bus.

Strangely, manufacturers no longer make red, blue and green cars. Their cars come in Medici Vermilion, Arctic Topaz and Celtic Chlorophyll. Saying these names is possibly the only time you'll see an embarrassed car salesman. But don't worry: if you ask for the red one, they'll understand.

Hope I didn't bore you all too much :p
