The reasons that Giovanni chose electric blue is because the first color that his grand father had on his Toyota Celica is blue. But Giovanni still want to have a clean and sleek color, so after he discussed with his girlfriend, finally they chose electric blue by Spies Hecker. Surely Giovanni love his car as much as his love to his girfriend , and his memories of this car won’t fade because memories won’t fade. It reflects its true colors from time to time and that’s made his car wonderful.
