Probably not the aspect you're looking for, but my 560SL is the first black car I've purchased. My parents had a black car when I was in high school and I had forgotten why I didn't want a black car for years. I literally have to wash my SL every week (or two if I let it get scruffy looking).
Don't get me wrong, I love my SL, but I hate washing it all of the time. I don't know what colors were available in '94-'95, but even Black Pearl hides dirt a lot better than pure Black.
Just a thought.
