My favourite is no colour... White!
pretty sure black is the absence of color, white is the color that is all the others combined.

Disagree. If you're talking about combining colors of visible light, then yes: "black is the absence of color, white is the color that is all the others combined."
However, since we're talking about paints & pigments, it's just the opposite. In terms of paints & pigments, white is the absence of all color.
Point well taken. I was thinking about it from the visible light spectrum side of things.
And to get annoyingly technical, with paints/pigments its about adsorption and reflection of different wavelengths of the visible spectrum that hit the surface. (Red-Orange-Yellow-Green-Blue-Purple)
White paint reflects the whole spectrum (fairly) evenly.
Red paint only reflects the red end of the spectrum (red-orange-yellow) and adsorbs the rest (green-blue-purple).
Black adsorbs the whole visible spectrum - which is why it gets the hottest out in the sun.
Here endeth the lesson
I voted for Performance Blue. Pretty much the only reason my Fiesta isn't PB is because I'd have had to wait for a 2015 build. I like most of the colors it's offered in, especially Green Envy/Ford RS Green. Heck, I wouldn't mind wrapping/dipping my whole car that color.
I voted for white. It's the color I always look for in certain cars when I'm ready to buy, but often don't find. Performance blue is a very close second and I'm working a deal on both!
I am really not into Green Envy, but the intense green color that Dodge offers with the 2015 Challenger looks spectacular.
The 2015 Challenger in general looks awesome I think.
Oxford White. ...should still be called Wimbledon White if you ask me.
My first car was a '68 Ford Custom in Wimbledon White. I don't think Oxford White is near the same.

My favorite color isn't listed here, yet. It's new for 2015: Electric Spice Metallic, color code H8. See att., p. 19 of Ford's current color chart.
My favorite is performance blue. I bought mine in black because it was all I could find available when I purchased last September. After seeing more of the colors I wish I had held out for PB or molten orange.
Have you been able to determine if this color is offered on any other North American Ford product? Maybe under a different name?
The Spice must flow! I hear your eyes turn a deep blue once you've been driving one of those for a while though.
This reference... *thumbsup*

I'm the right generation, but I had to look that up LOL. Dune never caught my interest back in the day.
It's a classic, and probably most responsible (along with the Foundation series) for getting me into writing SF.
