That makes sense. White is also supposed to be the best color for
avoiding the constabulary (i.e invisible to the naked eye 8^)). My bro
in law has never had a car that wasn't white for just that reason.
Something must work for him - he never met a speed limit he agreed with
and yet is never ticketed. Don't think he even owns a radar detector.
Illegal in VA anyway, but somehow, I don't think that would stop him.
