Default Themes?

Are there other themes or color options for the forum?

Well, there's the beer theme, the Teri Garr theme, the "My Favorite Tractor" color scheme, and the surprisingly unpopular Mr. Nude Rocketeer theme.
Okay, so I'm completely unqualified to answer this question. All I know is if the answer turns out to be "Sure, tons of them!", I'm going to be one unhappy rocket-type guy.

If you mean the appearance of the forum in your browser, I think this is selected by our host, Scott, when he set up the site. I looked in the UserCP area and did not see any settings options for us users that would change the appearance. I've seen other vBulletin websites with other themes used, but again, I think that's a host function only. Later revisions of the software may allow this, but not the current version Scott is using.

This coming from Mr. March, 2005.

Nope, this is it. Scott picked a theme and I made a banner for it.

They are normally called "skins" and the skins sometimes have certain themes. Not sure about vBulletin, but forum software companies charge extra for more advanced versions with extra options.

Umm most of them are free, in vB and pHpbb they seem more to be called styles or themes at least in the user and admin control panel.

To that end if it's blue with white, I guess that's what I am stuck with.

I'll rephrase it. Free versions that I've fooled with usually don't come with the code for skins. If you know how to add the code to the board wrapper, then you can add them yourself. However, premium versions of software often come with several skin choices. I do a private motorcycle forum with Invision's free software and I had to add the code myself, but their premium version has it already built in, IIRC.

As I am talking about vB, the base simple version supports themes. No biggie, I was just asking.

I appreciate everyones help.
