GAK!  I've always referred to that color as "piss yellow" (gee, I hope no one
is offended).  But I've known lots of males who liked it.  It must be a gender
thing.  I figure if a car's going to be yellow, it should be YELLOW instead of
looking like it's faded right out of the can.

But the WORST MG color is Sandstone.  Back when these cars were still being 
made, everyone in the biz referred to this color as "babyshit brown."  (I 
smell something burning, can it be me?)  Every time I see an MG paint list, I 
look for the name Sandstone.  It's never there.  Since I know that was a 
factory name for a factory color, I don't believe anything those paint lists

formula on her car
