Color-coded advertising: Orange

Paint colors that were popular in the 1960s and the 1970s are starting to make a comeback on new cars, but orange has largely been left out. It’s unfortunate: While most of us wouldn’t want our next car to be orange, the color makes a car stand out from the pack and helps buyers remember the ad in which they saw it.
