My Charger R/T was just finished being built today. I picked Cool Vanilla for the color. I had a red Intrepid R/T, a Mercury Marauder in black (black is sharp but SO hard to keep clean....it shows everything!!!!) and I have a silver pacifica....so I thought Cool Vanilla would be a bit different.
Color is one of my major beefs with the Charger and the 300. There aren't nearly enough choices and the choices there are aren't every good. At leat the Charger has red. It's really a shame there's no yellow (except limited Daytonas), no green, no red 300, no pearl white, no bright white, and certainly no interesting colors. This is one area I think mother Mopar really dropped the ball. Look at the wide variety of eye-popping shades in which the new Mustang is available.
I know Chrysler saves money by offering limited color choices, but it's ridiculous. It's one of the reasons I never bought a 300 - no good colors (except the blue, but it's the exact same blue as my wife's wagon, and I don't want to be that guy whose car matches his wife's).
I still think they should offer the srt-8 with a daytona appaerence package, and I also think the colors are a little drab...I do like the dark silver, but where's a gold or a nice burgundy or HEMI ORANGE!!!
