red hot

I want a car with a colorful interior. I am tired of silver cars and neutral interiors. I want a happy cheery red inside with a pretty pale blue car or glamorous white. My brother restores cars and this is one he has been giving some tlc. What color interior would you like?

o my stars! that is the smoking hot car interior that would bring a little (heck, a LOT) of life to my summer!

I so agree with you -why do cars have to be so boring? I constantly wonder why they have to be SOLID too -why not a pattern? A plaid car could be so cute! or if you're shabby chic a faded chintz perhaps?
I would love a car with a red interior - zippy!

My cars always seem to be tan leather...boring. My Dad had an old convertible corvette with red interior and that was HOT !

I think that I would do a nice vintage celeste blue, like Bianchi bikes. Love this post, PVE! When did we become so boring with our cars?

Gorgeous! Personally I see myself in a deep blue car with a tan interior!:)

That red/white combo sounds like a winner. A red convertible flew by me today...and had me thinking!! I had a darling yellow mg midgit convertible in college --- what a cutie!

Recently we saw an old, old truck - mint green paint with matching mint green interior. It had been lovingly restored and I fell in love. Love the beauty and unique beauty of old cars.

What kind of car is that in the picture? Reminds me very much of the little white Chevy Corvair I drove back in the early 60's (excuse my gray!). It was red inside, with leather bucket seats and a stick shift in the floor. It road like a dream and hugged the curves like nothing else since. Unfortunately the motor in the rear spat out oil like nobody's business, and the little car didn't last for long--repairs were too expensive. But it was funnnnnnn to drive!

That red interior is fine with me. Your brother certainly does know how to give an old car some tlc, looks fabulous!
Enjoy your Friday,

Turquoise please! Perhaps they should be adding patterned seats to new cars?

I really miss the uniqueness of cars from the 50's and 60's. I always loved turquoise cars with white leather interior. So beachy chic!
