"Like the Model T, it comes in just black."
If it hasn't been obvious enough, I live and work in Metro Detroit. Around here, the whole joke about Henry Ford and his quote--"They can have any color they want, as long as it's black."--is just plain overdone. (My father in law worked for Ford once, I believe, and he repeats it all the time, especially when we ride the Model Ts at Greenfield Village**.)
But I'm not convinced that everyone in El Reg's readership, particularly a younger crowd, will get the reference. Some might not even know what a Model T is.
** If El Reg's Geeks Guide to Britain had an American counterpart, Greenfield Village and The Henry Ford Museum of American Innovation in Dearborn, Michigan should be a top spot for anyone. Not that it's better than anything British--"American" is part of the actual name. I just think it's cool to see regardless.
