Traffic Sorted by Color

(vimeo link)

At first, this looks like a car ad, like those that show a group of cars "driven by professionals on a closed course." That's not it at all! This started out as a four-minute shot of traffic on state route 63 in San Diego. Then filmmaker Cy Kuckenbaker (previously at Neatorama) actually edited each car into sorted sequences by color! No, he didn't change any car colors or use computer-generated imagery -just editing. And what great editing! You can read about the process at his site. The colors are ranked by how common they are, which is why the black-and-white police vehicle is all by itself. -via Daily Picks and Flicks

My first car & third cars were grey (bad colors for the wet Pacific Northwest) and my second car was gold. Now I have a pretty blue with metal flakes Ford Focus. Love it!

We need more bright colored cars! The car I have now is gray, and I have trouble finding it in a parking lot. I've had three gray cars, not by choice, and they are impossible for other drivers to see.
