We already knew this...

"According to a new survey of 2,000 men and women by Insure.com, women think the most attractive men tend to drive black Ford pickup trucks. "

Let's see, Doc has three black Fords... Who else? We saw the young lady in Cody's Prototype pics... Face it, they're chick magnets!

Old Henry Ford knew this way back in the day. As the only color ya could
get for years was black.

Don't forget Dick and DW, they both have black trucks.

Red trucks are just sportier, red truck owners tend to attract the less desperate women.

Well Dale seems to attract a lot of young beauties with his yellow truck.
I know having it in the garage in a million pieces sure doesn't help your cause. That seems to make it a repellent even to the women living in the house.

I don't know, having a vehicle in a million pieces seems to keep the ladies in the house very interested.

First:

"You bought what?!!"

Then:

"How long is it going to take?"

"When are you going to that thing running?!!"

"When is it going to out of the garage?!!"

"I don't remember that part being here before?"

"How much did you pay for that?!!"

There always seems to be a lot of interest.

My black F2 attracts women, but not a dang one of wants to come over and clean the house - I even offered a sweat band and those yellow rubber gloves

The only thing my black vehicles ever attracted was dirt.

Actually I have 3 black Ford trucks, a black Z28, and a black Harley. Even with that being said, I am still contemplating painting my 1950 F-1 project black. The black theme just kind of snuck up on me. I looked up one day and said, "Dam I must be a vampire or something." Ray is right--they show every speck of dirt. And the rumors are true-- I have to carry a stick in every truck to beat the women away.

That's my big one. Or more precisely. "I want to get my car in the garage!"

My oldest daughter countered her mom with "A lot of the junk in the garage is yours!" I just smiled and didn't say anything.

Well, I can attestt to the fact that a multicolored morphodite of a truck does nothing to attract the shiny young darlings.

Oh well, they are a pleasure to look at and fun to hold, but I wouldn't want to own one.
