|03:30 pm - Vehicle Colors I Have Known|
Champagne is almost discernible, some kind of tannish beige. But Pepper (Black pepper or red pepper? In this case it's red.) And Patriot? (Turns out it's a dark blue, which must go over well in the red states to whom this jingoistic color scheme is dedicated.) And Di-- well, ok, I made up the last one. Cause dignity and froo-froo SUV colors just don't mix.

My Saturn is Champagne.
It's beige. It doesn't look anything like alcohol.
Ha. Reminds me of the bus system in York, where I went to uni. The different lines were identified by colour, not by number as convention would have it. The colours were things like:
I think they must have run out of money before they were able to paint all the buses, because most of the time you'd just get like a blue bus with a sign in the window reading MAUVE.

My parents used to have a big Ford sedan in the late 70s that was "banana beige".
"Patriot"-colored SUVs are just too much. Clearly chosen by someone with absolutely no sense of the absurd. Or chosen by someone with a keen sense of the absurd and the knowledge that his/her target market had none.
Anyway, I'd think that scheme would be some mix of red, white and blue, wouldn't you? Maybe with the option of a screaming bald eagle on the side panels, an American flag to fly from the aerial and some optional tasteful bumper stickers, like 'LIVE FREE OR DIE, SUCKER!'
...not dissimilar to some vehicles I saw in Tucson, come to think of it.
I had a car that was officially 'ginger' and 'creme' two-tone.
Late in its life, it was more 'carotene' and 'crap.'
"Pepper" as in bell pepper maybe. Or Jalepeno type peppers.
