Somehow I overlooked this great thread before, but now I see the error of my ways. I always liked maroon, maybe for the same reason as a previous poster here-Honduras Maroon on a Corvette, one of the greatest colors ever left a real impression on me. I’ve always been a GM guy, over the years I’ve factory ordered a maroon ‘70 Nova SS, a ‘73 Cutlass S 350/4spd. and my latest DD, a ‘13 Tahoe. There have been other colors but I always gravitate toward maroon again, and the ‘32 Fordor will undergo a color change to a straight maroon, no metallic, with black fenders. Now that I think about it, maybe it was the maroon Monarch springer fork bicycle that started it all. There wasn’t a lot of money to go around and dad bought one bike, a boys bike for my two older sisters to share so it could be handed down to me. Naturally they hated it, but to me it was the absolute best. Somehow dad knew- gotta be maroon!
