Now honestly would you not buy a car because it was pink?!

StinaBearStinaBear Posts: 7Registered Users
My bf painted my car pink for me and he thinks that because it's pink that absolutely no one will buy it whenever I try to sell it(Which won't be for a longtime)....I know not many males would want to buy it, but would any of you gals buy a pink car? I am curious to see if I am just weird or if other people would enjoy having a pink car....


Here is a picture of it so you can see just how pink it is... car2---1.jpg?phVWZz_Ai_iIjH6V


Here is a link if the picture doesn't work out

    The only time I could possibly conceive of me buying a pink car is if it were a specific 1950s era cadillac. But if I am ever rich enough to buy Elvis' car, I would rather spend the money on other things. Like a getaway to Barbados, a private jet, an original Picasso, a night with Patrick Stewart...

    Cant see the pic.
    So i voted no I would no buy a pink car. Maybe it depends on what kind of car it is.
  • StinaBearStinaBear Posts: 7Registered Users
    Yeah I can understand it depending on the car, LoL mine doesn't look too good now because I can't afford to tint the windows and lower it and do something with the lights(The red in the back looks horrible I think, I have clear corners in the front that help)

    If the pic doesn't work try right clicking and then clicking show picture that fixed it for me....

    I would never ever buy a pink car. Ever.

    Nope, people would think I was a Mary Kay lady. Desperate women would be flagging me down for moisturizer and lipstick.

    As pink cars go, it's cute but you probably will have a hard time reselling it..

    I like pink but not cars, sorry. I generally don't like bright/odd colors on cars. My car is turquoise...I hate it. But at the time I bought it, I didn't really have the luxury of choosing the color I wanted and I've vowed the next car I get will be something "normal." Probably black. Maybe navy.

    If it were a classic like this one, yes - in a heartbeat! But I think it looks odd on more recent cars.

    I love you for your pink Cadillac,
    Crushed velvet seats,
    Ridin' in the back,
    Cruisin' down the street,
    Wavin' to the girls,
    Peelin' outta sight,
    Spendin' all my money on a Saturday night,
    Honey I just wonder what you do there in the back of your
    Pink Cadillac, Pink Cadillac.

    Your car is kind of cute though. Under the right circumstances I'd buy it, but it wouldn't be one of my top choices. I prefer more subdued colors in cars. I had a red car...never again. So a pink car would be low on my list (and pink is actually my favorite color :)).

    I'd call your car salmon. :D

    I probably wouldn't, but I have the luxury of buying new cars, and don't particularly like pink anyway. But I think your car looks good that color, and would imagine you'd be able to resell it.

    I personally would never buy a pink car, but I remember back in high school when the GEO trackers first came out that pink (or a pinkish color) was a stock color. And a girlfriend of mine got it. And it was cooooolll (then again any car in high school is pretty cool). So I think you might be able to sell it to a 16 year old girl...

    ETA, ya know what. Screw that. I would buy a pink car if the price was right and I had no other options. I certainly wouldn't go looking for a pink car, but heck, my second car was an OLD UGLY BROWN corrolla. But it was cheap and reliable.

    I would not buy a pink car. Metallic purple/lavender yes.

    Well thank you guys, I'm just glad a couple people said yes they would. Maybe I should have asked would you buy a pink car for your daughter :P

    Whenever I do sell it I think my best bet will be putting it up on ebay and advertising it like mad. Driving it around in my town gets me a lot of looks and want my next car(hopefully a Fod ZX2) to be that same pink but I don't want there to be two cars that colour in my town! That's how this whole thing started, I asked my bf if whenever I got a new car he'd paint it pink again and he shook his head and was like "You know you're going to have all these pink cars and no one is going to buy them so our backyard is going to be full of pink cars that we can't sell"

    haha anyways thanks again :D

    Dh once started to paint my car this weird ass Mary Kay on Acid pink...

    It ended up with a Cadillac Pearl tri-coat, I threw a fit when I saw what color he had picked out.

    I clicked "maybe" becasue it depends on the car. No, I would not buy that car. A newer pink car seems odd to me! I would buy a vintage pink car. A '57 Chevy or a '67 Mustang, something like that.

    My uncle had a pink '66 Mustang when I was growing up. Original paint, original owner, original seats... Boy did he baby that car. Then my cousin trashed it about 10 years ago. I was so mad, I WANTED THAT CAR!!! If I'd gotten it, it would still be with us. :lol:

    Don't taillights have to be red?

    Your car isn't my style but I can see why you love it!

    In Oregon I don't think they have to be red because a lot of people tint theirs blackish, but I can get eurolights in the back which aren't completely red they are more clear and silverish which would look a lot better, all the colours clash really bad with the pink, the front looks a lot better since I got clear corners and I got purple xenon headlights which look good with the pink, I am thinking about getting purple back up lights too.

    I won't be getting a new car for awhile so I am going to shell out some money to tint the windows, maybe put in a sunroof, put some graphics on it and get new wheels and some low pros...LoL maybe after I get it all pretty more people will be more accepting of a pink car :P

    It doesn't matter if anyone else likes the color of your car, you love the color of your car and thats enough. :)

    Hmm wasn't thinking about if you sell it, I was thinking about you driving it . :)

    You can always repaint it when you decide you want to sell it.

    LoL I love driving it, sort of, I live in a small town so I get a lot of people looking at it but it makes me nervous because they completely turn their head to watch me drive by when they are driving :shock:

    It's awesome too because I never have to remember where I parked it's easy to spot

    I would get it repainted but my bf is the one who painted it and he's a busy guy(Took him almost 6 months to paint for me, but I am not complaining it was free work I just had to buy the supplies)

    Thats pretty cool that your boyfriend painted your car and I think its cool that you drive a pink car.I'm sure when you go to sell it you will find someone that likes it the way it is .

    I have seen pink cars here too, so there are others that like the color.
