A rhetorical question

What is nicer than a bright beige Landrover with a white roof :?:

Had it been the usual green the Falcon shutter would not have been clicked. "Give beige a chance"....probably called "Sandstorm" or something more evocative than "beige" on the Land Rover paint tin.

"Sand" I think Jim could be on the official paint tin :-D It was undoubtedly the stand out vehicle in the car park such a nice face! and colour :-D ...not much competition, although a Ford Freedom in "Boundless Blue" was the brightest colour on parade.

Neighbour popped in to deliver the local free paper, comment on the new car, "I don't like the red." :o
