The only new car I've ever bought was Kashmir Yellow (yellow being
supposedly the 'safest' colour because if its high visibility). Big
mistake. The paint surface kept turning to white powder, and you could

(although it would have been a nice car if only it hadn't so many other
faults). Fortunately, it got written off after a works colleague and
fellow radio amateur rammed me hard up the rear end.
