    Interesting. I had a black Nissan towed.
    Dig deeper and find out if these are inline with the numbers of white and black, Chevy and Ford vehicles out there.
    I would have to believe white and black are probably the two most popular colors of cars and Chevy and Ford are likely the two most popular manufacturers.
