Is there no love for the red candy colored mustangs?
I have owned both cars in my signature. First was the Grabber Blue and now the Red Candy. My favorite was the Grabber Blue....it was my baby, ordered EXACTLY the way I wanted it. Red Candy was my 2nd choice and that is what I have now.......

I looked at every color on the lot and the red looked awesome. The car I test drove was the performance white...actually had it over a weekend and it was pretty nice. They had a grabber blue one there and I thought that was just OK. (It did look good as a GT500 though). I ended up with Kona Blue. The just fricking glows in the sunlight and when I saw it, I knew it was for me.
Cleaned and polished all these colors are beautiful.

Like Mcate, Black is my first preference (and I enjoy taking care of it), then Torch Red (that color totally POPS!), Candy Red, Performance White, Grabber Blue..... heck, it's an awesome car no matter what color it comes in!

Candy Apple is gorgeous, I just got a little burned out on it around where I live that is what everyone seemed to buy their s197s in it. Most people around here don't take care of it and it just doesn't pop. But when its cleaned and waxed its a beautiful color.
Besides Torch Red, Performance White and Black are the best. IMO
Exactly, see if they were all that shiny it would be a different story.
My Fiance has a Crystal Red Metallic Tint Coat Cobalt SS/TC and that color is close to Red Candy, his car is always clean and that paint is always amazingly gorgeous.
I prefer black or performance white. I keep it simple. I saw a 2011 GT at work today that was black and looked like it was just waxed and I was like . It was stunning and I cant wait til spring comes and I get to wax mine.
I have the Dark Candy Apple on my 2009 and I LOVE it, but I have to agree that it tends to loose its "wow" factor when dirty. It absolutely amazes me, though, how GREAT it look at twilight time...the purple-ish tones in it really come out!!
