Mine is Vanilla and I love the color. You're right, you would never see an old school Charger painted this color, but this ain't an old school Charger either. Everyone has their opinion on the colors - I just don't like the dark colors because they are harder to keep clean. The billet grille looks good on the vanilla color, much better than black, while the black grilles look a lot better on the darker colors or Daytonas. I'm just not a fan of the orange and yellow and the stripes. If I had one of those colors I might as well put a big NEON sign on it saying "Pull me over and give me a ticket!" With my bad luck, that is what would happen. It is all about deception - someone at the stop light next to me thinks I drive a vanilla painted slow ass car but then I leave them in the dust.
