Geariodic Table Of Colors Presents The Car World’s Most Iconic Hues

We know you want to repaint that spare bedroom British Racing Green.

It’s no surprise national racing colors have long been a staple in the automotive world. British Racing Green, Italian Racing Red, and German Racing Silver are all apparent. However, the spectrum of well-known colors in the automotive world is much more nuanced than the classic national shades. In a related article, automotive retailer Peter Vardy released an entire periodic table of paint colors associated with manufacturers’ vehicles.

While white and silver can often be associated with less extravagant vehicles, there’s more than what meets the eye. There have been legends in the automotive space dressed in silver paintwork like the McLaren F1 and the R34 Nissan GT-R. Another honorable mention is Aston Martin for its Silver Birch color.

Wildest Stolen Car Stories On Motorious

Stealing an enthusiast’s car is like taking away a piece of their soul. The disgusting criminals who commit these auto thefts have no regard for the blood, sweat, and tears that go into most classic and muscle car builds, restorations, or just upkeep.

Nissan GT-R gets off-road treatment from exotic car dealer in Netherlands


See Full Image Gallery >>

One of the hot car modification trends nowadays is to take a car never meant for off-roading, and give it some level of all-terrain capability. A lot of these cars take inspiration from rally cars of the 1980s and 1990s that competed in African “Safari” rallies, so they had lots of ground clearance and giant tires. It’s clear that Classic Youngtimers Consultancy in the Netherlands had this in mind when it modified this Nissan GT-R.

The company doesn’t say what year the GT-R is, but based on the look and the mention that it started with 485 horsepower, it must be a relatively early R35 from between 2009 and 2011. The dealer notes it has upgraded the engine to reach over 600 horsepower, though it didn’t elaborate on was done, specifically. The exterior modifications are obvious, though. The car is taller courtesy

Click here to read the full article.

As a reckoning wave of civic and social awareness hits the country and statues of Confederate figures topple, the use of the Confederate flag is finally being questioned and we are starting to see less and less of it. NASCAR banned it and Mississippi is looking to change their flag but there is one instance where the emblem — which has been long-associated with racism — will remain: on a car from Dukes of Hazzard in a museum in Illinois.

The Volo Auto Museum is home to the “General Lee”, the last 1969 Dodge Charger used during the first season of the classic TV series which ran 1979 through 1985. The car is stamped with the Confederate flag on the roof.  Located outside of Chicago, the museum has said that the car will stay put despite the shift in the social landscape.
