Over the years car manufacturers have made some interesting choices when it came time to pick paint colors. Which choices were good and which choices were bad varies greatly on a person by person basis. This weekend we want to know which color is the worst to ever appear on a production vehicle. What is the worst car color?

My choice for the worst automotive color is the brown color you see above on my trusty '98 4runner. While I love almost everything about my 4runner from the 3.4 V6 to the five speed manual transmission, I can't stand its boring color. The rare nature of the aforementioned V6/five speed combination is to blame for me deciding to purchase a vehicle with a color I so thoroughly despise. Whenever I see a early third gen 4runner in black, blue, red, green or any of the other better color options, I can only look longingly and remind myself how much it costs to repaint a car.


I told you about my 4runner's undesirable shade of brown, so tell us, what do you think is the worst factory car color ever used?
