Default Machine color/finish?

Sewing machine colors/finishes -

It seems like most of the "new" machines are all white with a smooth finish. (Plastic?)

Have/Do sewing machines gone through "phases" of colors?

For a while, all the machines were black, then Singer went through a tan phase, with an occasional "other color".

Do you think that white will go out of style?

I liked the era of the 15 clones and then dashboards when all sorts of colors started popping. I hate the looks of old plastic yellow/browning. ugh. I hope white plastic goes away soon.[ATTACH=CONFIG]596172[/ATTACH]

I love the 'dashboards'....Some of my favorites are the pink Atlases.

I've saved pictures of my favorite vintage machines here:

I love the turquoise machines. The first machine I ever owned looked like this. It was a Princess, manufactured by White. I wish I had never gotten rid of it.

I guess I need an all blue one, huh?

Yea I have a soft spot for turquoise. The one on the right is adapted to handcrank so we can zigzag by hand.

Everything goes through phases of color. I can't say that the color of a sewing machine really matters to me.
