this way it seems more like it's 'our' car, even though it's my track day toy. She doesn't drive a stick, and no, I'm not teaching her either, it's just perfect this way!
She also gets to name the cars, and she chooses good names too, it all makes for a happy healthy and joyful family, and my co-pilot feels like an integral part of the team.
So we are getting Storm Titanium, since we saw one in Australia in that color, and she felt it suited the car best. I liked the Cobalt Blue, and loved the Ice Blue, but I don't think either are US colors. Anyway, Storm it is, with red interior, so says she who must be obeyed!
My wife is picking the color. She vetoed red; although she admits that it looks great, after 20 years of red cars she wants a change. She loves Saffron Yellow, as do I, so that's it. Unless a light blue shows up, which we both would prefer.
She does not drive a stick, so will not be driving the Elise. In fact, she probably would have a Viper if it came in an automatic, since that's her favorite car (no need to yell at me, I told her that just wouldn't be right!). But she's perfectly happy tooling around in her 1988 560SL (before they abandoned the traditional boxy styling that we love).
My wife suggested a different color on my Seven and listening to her was the best thing I did realtive to that car. I am a color dunce, she picks the colors I pick the cars, seems like a darn good arrangement to me.
My significant other said that "this car is so gorgeous that any color would look great on it." Another one of her quotes "it's an exotic you could get away with odd colors like Lime green." But we both don't like it. We're thinking COM, or BRG/biscuit/stripes.
