My honda years ago also was worth more after five years.
I worry - someone got shot in the SF Bay area for having the wrong color car - red, article about a week ago. Guy who was shot was not gang related..
On the other hand, I drove all the streets near us in two gang territory in a red fiat spyder convertible as a white woman looking for her dog. All I talked with were courteous, and later I got a call (he had tags), SandPaw had showed up at a party, a gay party at that, this in the early seventies, a few blocks away from the trouble spots. So, I got to go to my first gay party to pick him up.
