Any colour you like

photo(4)It could be any car park.

This one at Hare Hatch Sheeplands perfectly illustrates the choice of colours the car industry gives us.

Henry Ford would be proud. Grey, silver or black, you can have any colour you like. If the leaves hadn’t been green this picture could have been in black and white.

Is our monochrome motoring world being dictated by the industry? And if you how much power do they have?

You can get a clue from car prices. While TVs get bigger and better they get cheaper. But while cars get only marginally better, they cost more than ever to run and more than ever to buy.

If politicians wanted to do something useful they could look at why this industry is failing to improve at the rate of other technologies.
