I was looking at the colors for the SSR, and thought the names were pretty kool.

-Smokin' Asphalt [black]
-Ultra-Violet
-Slingshot Yellow
-Redline Red
-Richochet Silver

Just musing if the Solstice might go with a celstial theme:

Martian Desert [red-orange]
Total Eclipse [black or black with pearl highlights]
Solar Flare, or Solar Flair [orange-yellow]
Summer [Bright yellow], maybe juxtapose with Solar Flair
Asteroid [dark grey]
Comet Dust [silver/dark silver]
Neptune [aqua or blue]
Full Moon, [White with Grey highlight]
Winter [bright white]
Sunset or Autumn [deep orange, similar to chrome orange]
Vernal Equinox [Green, of course similar to BRG or spruce]
Twilight [deep blue]
Redshift [a decent, deep red - similar to torch]
Aurora Mist [light green metallic]
Moon Beam [silver-blue, or maybe dark blue]

Any other speculations? Maybe someone from GM will read this and take a few suggestions? Also, can't come up with a celestial theme for a racing red.

Celestial colours

How about "Redshift Red" for your racing red colour? A redshift in astronomy usually means a star or galaxy is moving away from the viewer, usually very, very quickly. But you may have to rename your "Martian Desert" red-orange as Mars is more the colour of butterscotch pudding than a real orange-red shade.

Nebula Red might be another idea.

Cheers,

Neil

How 'bout "Summer" instead, as in "I've got a new Summer Solstice"?
Solar Flare [yellow]
How 'bout Solar Flair?
Asteroid [silver/grey/dark grey]
This is the color I plan on getting but maybe "Winter" would be more to my liking. "I've got a new asteroid Solstice" sounds a little too much like something that was prescribed by a proctologist. :lol

How 'bout,

Comet Dust (silver/grey)

Aurora Mist (light green mettalic)

Moon Beam (dark blue)

Red is hard though, I can only think of Red Dwarf Red and that's pretty lame.
I don't know, how 'bout Sputnik Red? :lol

naoki,

I was going to mention something... oh, NEVER MIND!

Anyways,

I love Aurora Mist.

Redshift is a great one also. Lots of room to choose any shade of red there and it's just eclectic enough to be individual - JEEZ, I sound like a marketing schlump!!!

As far as brown, I'm partial to "Terra". Just can't imagine a brown Solstice.

Maybe for the Saturn, 'cause if your heart's in Saturn, your head's in Uranus.

(I had to use that quote again, just couldn't resist!).

I haven't seen Uranus either, Naoki, and suggest we keep it that way. :jester

How about Io Orange? (a sulfur yellow)

I also like the idea of a 'summer' solstice, yellow, and a 'winter' solstice, white. Maybe even make them special editions with limited runs. The same way Volkswagon does with some of their 'bug' colors.

I can picture "Red Shift" being one of the new, expensive paints that changes from red to gold as you walk around the car and "Blue Shift" changing from very dark blue to emerald green or purple.

I like "Moonshine" grey that turns to a harvest colour at sun set.

I like the idea of summer solstice yellow, winter white, but the special colors worries me! It could be a cool idea, unless they start selling Solstices in a nice range of Beetle pastels! ARGH! :mad I'd have to scrape my eyes out! Maybe a nice orange, or deep red (like the 50th anniversary Corvette's color) would be a great idea!
