Don't antagonize and you will be fine no matter what color the car.

Your words "red wagon" just stuck a memory chord with me. Reminded me of my first new car. Well, actually my parents first new car. We got it when I was five years old and I picked it out - a Candy Apple Red 1968 Ford Fairlane station wagon. My dad kept it for about 25 years.
