I saw a Maserati Ghibli (like, a new one) at our local sushi place on Wednesday night. It was a metallic poo brown color.

Yeah, what's up with that? I'm seeing a lot of fecal colors making a comeback lately. Do not understand.

I really need to take some pictures of my new truck. I frequently call it "baby diarrhea brown"

Did it come with a massive color related discount?

discounted yes, but I think green is the color GM was looking for

Metallic brown has been a thing for a while now, though. I noticed it first on Porsches during the recession, and developed a theory that people who could still afford Porsches during shitty economic times bought them in drab colors to evade the Jacobins.

But I'm not sure why it's lasted. Maybe because the recovery has been so lopsided.
