A study in the Netherlands illustrates car thieves' preferences. From 2004-2008, the most commonly coloured vehicle stolen was black. This may be because black vehicles look more luxurious. Following close behind black were gray/silver automobiles. Of the 109 pink cars in the study, not one was stolen. A bright and uncommon colour, like pink, may be as effective deterrent as an expensive security system.
