Now that I have the 2005 car list I can say there is color preference and color rarity. Silver, black then red are the most common colors and I am guessing based on sales the most popular. Then white p. blue gray dr blue, green and finally yellow. That is how Toyota produced the 2005 model. Yellow are almost non-existent with only a couple produced. Everyone has a color preference but someone made the decision to produce this model based on demand for certain colors. I communicated with the owner of the white car and he admits the color has been the issue in the sale of his car. If his car was paradise blue I would be in play on the purchase in the 16-18k range.
