Saw a new Kia Cadenza on i95 yesterday near Baltimore. It was a metallic brown, not flattering for the car.

I finished reading this sci-fi book about a cockroach that wakes up one morning and finds himself turned into a human being. So anyway, he moves to Manhattan (where else?) and buys himself a Lincoln 4D in dark brown metallic!

Lol! IMO brown cars need to go back to the 70s where they came from.

I liked the khaki Honda Element but it was more of a tan I guess. Pretty "rare" bird. Some of the old brown Volvos weren't too bad.

Brown is for UPS trucks!

I'm sure some of the old brown Volvo wagons were confused with UPS trucks.

On Mercedes Pagoda SLs and Porsche 911s. At least it's not just another boring shade of grey/silver.
Two shades of Metallic brown are on the current Porsche configurator. Make mine Mahogany Metallic.

Brown is also awesome on a MB 6.9, and can work on a W126 (not my first choice, but not my last). I think the E63 wagon is offered in brown, that could be workable.

Yep, dark brown was popular on 60s and 70s Benzes and went very well with an orangey-brown upholstery (MB-Tex?) they had.

The old color name was "Havanna Brown", after the early 60s unpleasantness changed to "Tobacco Brown". The "palomino" interior color was popular in the 70s and 80s.
