White cars are so popular in California, it seems every other one is
white. I am a great enthusiast of white - easy to clean, does not show
dust (like black) and reflects heat. My Honda and Toyota pickup are
white and the new TC project will be white with red trim.

There is probably a physics law that causes white to become less visible
as you get as far north as you are.
