So... you came to the Crimson Red thread just to tell us you don't like red cars?

A friend of mine tried to warn me about getting a red convertible because he claims it's a chic car... he said girls drive red convertibles, especially with light-colored interiors. He said I'll be sorry.

Well, of course, that just bummed me out... I've got a Crimson Red Cabrio with light interior on order which replaced my order for a black on black coupe.

What do you do think? Is he right?

Some have said red cars attract cops, hence the cop-catcher red moniker. Hmmm, catch this...

That whole chic car thing really burns me up I had a red Miata and loved it. It's a classic and it was the most fun car I've ever had. It got me chics a few times, but that's really the extent to which it's a chic car.

Your friend must be jealous (driving around in a teal '92 Neon, maybe?) You've got a hell of a nice car on order. Don't let some a$$h0le ruin it for you by slagging it with mindless labels.

Oh ya, and it red convertibles with tan interiors are 'chic cars', what about all those Ferraris (like the pics posted above).

Some cars are indeed chic cars, like the VW Beetle, especially convertibles. The issue is not the color but the car itself.

I saw Sedona Red today. To even call it red is beyond me. It's very orangey. Like rust color.

Does not do anything for the car.

Here are some more of my photos. The first two are morning sun, the last four are late afternoon (these are also post-window tint and post-detailing).
