I'll go for the Ruby. Gloss black is nearly as common as gloss red. What about metallic black?

Thanks,

2 of my cars are black and they are a pain to keep clean (I didn't learn after the 1st).

But it never seems to stay clean very long.

Red is my vote also - Black gets too hot and is really hard to keep clean as AlfaEric said above. Are you painting it yourself?
