PURPLE is the Color of Hollywood Car ROYALTY…

Nothing is more challenging than trying to pick the COLOR of your car when it comes time to paint. And most people don’t fully understand that COLOR is a Science. It reveals the psychological state of mind of people and it’s much more than being “GREEN with ENVY.”

Here at Fireball, COLOR is our number one source of inspiration. It’s the thing that pulls… and repels, expands… and contracts, is cool… or not. And today… the COLOR is PURPLE.

These four Fireball SKETCHES embody Purple’s embrace of Hollywood Royalty. Bringing a sense WEALTH, vision, clarity and excitement. You don’t have to love it, but you SHOULD respect the P. Those that drive it, wear it of simply want a bit of French-ness in their lives are serious about passion. It’s RED’S Cousin… that you should be prepared for quickly. And it’s why Fireball’s got COOLNESS in the GARAGE. Enjoy!

DID YOU KNOW?? As a once-royal color, purple symbolizes wisdom, power, spirituality, luxury, wealth and nobility. Since it is between red and blue, purple is known for the combination of red’s power and blue’s stability. The color purple also symbolizes independence and dignity.

Here at Fireball… PINK is the Color of POWER

Most people associate the color PINK with femininity. But here at FIREBALL, Pink is POWER. And to prove it (at least every now and then), Fireball SKETCHES a new Pink ride to remind us that the World of Color is a cool thing. What’s YOUR favorite and on what CAR? Maybe he’d bust one out?? And WHAT COLOR should be next??

According to surveys in Europe and the United States, pink is the color most often associated with charm, politeness, sensitivity, tenderness, sweetness, childhood, femininity, and romance. But now… PINK IS BADASS.

Did you grow up with Gerry Anderson’s CAPTAIN SCARLET??

In the 60’s and 70’s, it was hardly a complete day without one of Gerry Anderson’s BRITISH SCIFI TV SHOWS.
