    I'm for sure not in the market for a car but yesterday I had a very clean Oxford white s550 mustang with exhaust decide to have some fun with me in my black 2012 GT. I was passing just before this happened WOT and I'm guessing he heard my OR X and gt500s w resonator deletes.

    I was just cruising in the right lane going 65 in a 65 and I see a white new mustang coming up in my rear. Figured it was an Eco or v6 because most I see are. Then all of a sudden after I quit looking in my rear view it went flying by me at least 90mph WOT and sounded and looked fantastic! I got a good look at it when he was at my rear quarter when I noticed it again (heard it) and then a nice sideshot then rear then got the tail lights w his brakes on. It was the first time in a long time I realized how inferior my 2012 s197 is but I started thinking after that isn't a white car what girls get?

    My bad on the long post but just reliving the experience again in my head and the look of the color and still love it. I'm 35 years old and not worried about seeking approval just looking for your thoughts of a grown man driving a white car

    I guessed you were a 12 year old before you posted your age.

    Nope just look at the Corvette and how many C-7's have been made in Arctic White from 2014 to 2016. I almost bought a 2005 white convertible C6 Corvette but settled on a Monterey red 2005 instead just this Monday. But the white really sets off the C6 and C7 vettes really well.

    Another car that looks good in white is Miatas or MX-5's. Now before you even say chick car there are quite a few packing 5.0L- 302 Ford small blocks and even a few with 4.6L SOHC V-8's in them. Also one around me a 1996 with a 1992 RX-7 13-B sequential turbo rotary. And guess what it is white with a beige top and black seats. So no white does not automatically equal chick car.

    I've never associated a white car with a female owner. I drive a '16 Edge Sport EcoBoost in White Platinum Metallic and love the color. Second white vehicle I've owned. That said, my daughter has had 5 white vehicles of the 7-8 total she's owned over the past 20+ years. Hmmm. :rolleyes:

    My 96 Cobra was white. Miss that car daily. Definitely the cleanest color. [​IMG] I wish my 2014 was white. Black is a bitch.

    I love white...my wife drives a white 13' Sport. That said, I'd like to paint my 86' white.

    A LOT of my cars are white. Blue is always my first pick, however, it seems like blue in these types of cars is very, very hard to find. White is my second pick. It looks very clean

    2nd that

    My wife owns a 2016 Audi Q5 Glacier White metallic. Never once tied white with females. White is a sharp looking color. Black IS a pain to keep clean. Our friend owns a 2013 White Shelby and I'd own it in a heartbeat. White exterior is the shit, next to a Teal 93...

    Easy color to keep clean looking. Have an 88GT and 95r, both white. I've never considered white girlie, even if we didn't own a couple.

    You got a 95R!? Would love to have one of those!! Thank God they made that one white and not Red. R's should have been white, not red IMO

    IMO white is one of the best looking colors on a car. Makes everything look better.

    I saw a new 5.0 in white recently, it sounded heavily modded. I thought it looked badass.

    I therefore question OP's sexuality.

    I generally like white or blue on car and trucks. Had a white 2004 Lightning, and white 2008 F350. If I get a new Raptor that might be white too.

    One nice thing about white paint is that the exterior features are more prominent. With black paint and darker paint colors, details are more subdued and less noticeable. I noticed this right away when I compared a 2016 Ford Edge Sport in black and in white, side by side. The major reason why I went with white.

    White is just a very popular color in general, specifically with old people, but who doesnt love a white car.

    Lol...I've heard lots of different 'xxxx is for girls' when it comes to cars, but never white!
    I'm a huge fan of white cars, and my next car will likely be a white z51 C7 - when you look at one of those, do you really think 'chick car'?!
