What color is your truck?
Based on 330 respondents from a 2010 Custom Rigs online survey.
Studies linking color choices and personality traits suggest there’s more behind your favorite color than you may be aware. In fact, color psychology is an entire field, and the reality is that no matter how many bells and whistles, stripes and flames, graphics, chrome or custom touches you put on your truck, nothing defines its style, or you, as much as its color.
