Angry What the DMV thinks of your JK's colour

I was going over my paperwork and looked at my Massachusetts Registry of Motor Vehicles (MARMV) vehicle registration form.

Frankly I hadn't looked at the registration since taking delivery on Aug 4th. I just assumed it was all ok. Well:

It seems that the Massachusetts RMV has an "issue" describing my 2011 JK Sport "S".

The love of my life is Sahara Tan, but to MA DMV it is listed as being BROWN !!!!!!!!.

THIS got me to thinking how would MA RMV describe YOUR JK?
DOZER
MANGO TANGO
CRUSH
What descriptions would they come up with here I wonder?

Check out my BROWN JK in the attached pic!

Ya, they use generic colors.

My silver Tj was listed as grey.

I'm gonna guess they can't mess up "black" lol

My '03 Liberty, which is green, has always been listed as tan. Shoulda done a few bank jobs with it, in hindsight.

Now I'm in the same boat as kjeeper. Black.

Ah... Someone there at the DMV used to work in retail and hates the marketers for using names for colors that make absolutely no sense. I was unhappy to read in road test reports from the 60s-70s and see that such dumb names had already been used for colors by that time.

Station wagon? Last station wagon I saw was in the movie Used Cars, when the family drives off the lot, hits a big hole, and the tailgate falls off and dumps a buncha the family's kids into the street...

They listed my Deep Cherry Red as just red. I would have loved to at least get burgundy.

Wisconsin DMV registered my Rescue Green as "Light Green"
I registered it in my state after purchase (Indiana) and the ladies at the DMV looked confused because they saw it sitting out in the parking lot.

.. More like a Goose Shit Green not Light Green

Illinois doesn't list a color, but the body style is listed as a carryall.

Go figure.
