DuPont has just released the results of its 59th Automotive Color Popularity Report—the longest running and largest ranking poll in the industry. White/white pearl has surpassed its long time rivals black and gray to tie with silver as the world’s color ranking based on new vehicle sales. "There has been increased consumer acceptance for white,” says Nancy Lockhart, DuPont color marketing manager. “Silver and black were once the top colors of luxury models."

Dear Mini Truckin',

Hello, I’m inquiring about a Mean Machine M10 military tribute minitruck I've built over the last several years. I think it would be a great addition to your magazine. It is a very unique piece of machinery and holds a strong and sacred value. I decided to build this '95 S-10 as a memorial in honor of the fallen men and women. Complete truck was built by myself and painted by Vintage Metal Inc. Thank you.

That's a pretty neat truck you’ve put together—just don't let it fall into the wrong hands. Could you imagine the crime spree a group of juvenile delinquents (minitruckers) could go on with this thing? An assault rifle mounted on the passenger side and a Gatling gun where the tailgate used to be? We're talking some major damage and a body count comparable to the second Seminole War. You had also mentioned in your email that you served in the National Guard for nine years—thank you for that, Matthew. You should take your truck to shows; people would get a kick out of it. Just promise us you'll leave the safety locks on and the ammo at home. But keep the Stars and Bars flying high.
