Color Forecasting for 2010

Other than the Color Marketing Group, which is pretty expensive to join, what's a reliable source for forecasting the color trends for the soft goods industry? I'm not looking for the color trends that the fashion industry would use. I'm looking for the color trends that would apply to products like...

Kill Pontiac, kill Buick, kill Saturn, kill Hummer. Keep Cadillac as your top end brand, stop making trucks under the Caddy marque. Make 1 of every size and shape under Chevy, and make GMC your commercial line go-to brand (utility trucks, ambulances, cargo vans, etc.) I second this plan. GM should ...

Yo, you're right. I guess that recessed cut around the front grill/nose that sinks back into the headlamps and over hood has been there on the A4 for sometime. On the previous generations that line wasn't as defined as it is now.

One thing I would would also like to mention here is the attribution of everything good/bad to Bangle, personally. It takes way more than one dude to design/make a car. Shoving all the love/hate to Bangle personally just doesn't seem right. So true. One individual should not be held accountable for...

Here's a little more insight on why he's stepping down, http://www.bmwblog.com/2009/02/03/more- ... signation/

Oh Deez, you crack me up!

Here's a great passing of the torch article, http://www.topgear.com/content/features ... /07/1.html

Whatever Bangle has planned for the future to come I'll bet he's successful. Good luck Chris!

I'm glad to see some of the automobile companies are cutting back on production instead of workforce. Cutting production is by far a better solution than cutting jobs, in my opinion. By cutting back on the production time during the course of a day, week, or however management plans to solve the com...

I have DirectTV and Ovation is one of the channels that they carry, but it's not part of my package. I flipped through some of the show descriptions, it seems like a great channel. I might give them a call about adding it.
