    Vauxhall Paint Colour Names

    Has anyone else wondered where Vauxhall get the names from for their paint colours? They seem a bit strange?

    i.e. 'Rainbow Blue' - Lets face it, it's not blue, it's purple

    Star Silver - Star's aren't silver :?

    Arden Blue - Ok it's hard n Blue, I'll give you that one.

    Diamond Black - Diamonds are more well known for being a white ish colour are they not :roll:

    Just my Thursday morning wonderings

    Diamonds come in many different colours.
    Colourless to yellow to brown, etc.

    Agreed but if someone says Dimond to you, black isn't the 1st colour that springs to mind
