I've always been partial to blue, but what color car is actually the most popular here in Minnesota?

Like I said, when it comes to car colors, my favorite has always been blue. I love the look of a deep, vibrant metallic blue paint job on a car, truck or SUV. (Even though, interestingly, I don't think I've ever owned a blue car. Perhaps it's nostalgia for the metallic blue Oldsmobile Delta 88-- which was roughly the size of one of those big ships you see on Lake Superior in Duluth-- my dad owned when I took my driver's test way back when.)

But it turns out I'm in the minority on the whole blue car thing. Because according to a new survey from iSeeCars.com has just listed which color car is the most popular here in the Land of 10,000 Lakes.

And, according to the survey... WHITE cars are the most popular here in Minnesota. In fact, 23.9 percent of all cars in the North Star State are white in color. Next up, it's BLACK, with 23.3 percent of Minnesota cars sporting that color. Finally, GREY, SILVER and RED round out the top five Most Popular Car colors.

You have to go down the list to number six to find my favorite, blue. Brown, green, beige and orange round out the top ten list when it comes to popular car colors here in the Bold North according to iSeeCars.com.

I am a little surprised that white came in at number one. I know that in some parts of the country, like in the desert southwest, white cars are popular because they reflect the sun's rays and will stay somewhat cooler during those really hot summer days.

But that's not really the case here, is it? Although, now that I think about it, I'm thinking white isn't necessarily the popular color here in Minnesota, but it IS the color just about every car becomes after all the snow and road salt gets splashed on them, am I right?
