Barry, No! That means that you cant make up your mind which way to go. As we all know now White is the color!

                        I think there is a little bit of RED in every Corvette!

Still nit-pickin.... "Warbonnet Yellow" is actually a GOLD color, so the numbers for both Gold and Yellow are skewed.
Overall, it is neat to see a general idea of what was popular in the era. Thumbs Up

Adam,
I'm curious where you got the info.  I didn't know specific color counts were available by year.  Or maybe was it that there aren't counts on how many cars had a specific color, interior color, body style (vert vs coupe), engine, etc...
 
Cool info.  Thanks.  Very surprised to see Silver that high up the list, and agree with Joel on the issue of Black.

I got it from here:

It's all the numbers that are available for C3s.  Not all years are available, and some years had a few numbers missing.
