Would You Buy A White Muscle Car?
By Mark Weisseg
By most standards a white muscle car is not tough. Red Corvette, black Camaro. Torch blue Mustang, Hemi Orange and so on. But white? Nah, it’s not a tough color to impress. Until now. The only other tough white car I can remember is the white car in the movie Vanishing Point but we know how that ended.
So, I stood back and said ” Would I order a white car”? Years ago I would have said no way. It did not have that scary,mean look for me. I was one of those that had to have tough colors like red, orange, black and even the Mopar lime green. I think that lime green only goes to Mopar. I just cannot picture it on any thing else.
But, times change and I changed. Or, I grew up maybe but I saw this car in the picture and admitted to myself that white is perfect. Use the right decals or stripes, accent it with a wheel and tire package and you have cool. I guess the interior would look good in black but I have a picture in my archives of a Cuda from a car show a few years ago that was white with a drop dead beautiful red leather interior. In fact it was for sale at the time and I inquired about it. It was not matching numbers and his price was not outlandish. I just wanted matching numbers at the time. So, today I stand before you a new man. White is cool. In fact it’s red hot cool now and it’s overdue. I mean how many of us can go to a car show and see a dozen red Corvettes? After a while they all blend together. And, I am not picking on the Vettes, line up ten plum crazy Challengers and the same applies. Bring on the white and bring on the changes.
