    Question Probmen with randon class in program

    Hi I am writing a program for a car cricket game. I can get the innings and players name ok, but when the program needs to randomly choose vehicles and colours, nothing appears in output. I think my program is not entering in this loop. Could I please get some suggestions? My code so far:

    [hightlight=java]

    import java.util.*;
    import java.util.Random;

    public class AssigOne112
    {
    public static void main(String[] args)
    {
    Scanner sc= new Scanner(System.in);
    Random generator;

    //Set seed value
    final int SEED = 400;

    //Final var
    final int CARS = 4;

    //Colour variable for vehicles
    final int BLACK = 0;
    final int BLUE = 1;
    final int CYAN = 2;
    final int DARK_GREY = 3;
    final int GREY = 4;
    final int GREEN = 5;
    final int LIGHT_GREY = 6;
    final int MAGENTA = 7;
    final int ORANGE = 8;
    final int PINK = 9;
    final int RED = 10;
    final int WHITE = 11;
    final int YELLOW = 12;

    //Value of coloured cars
    final int BLACK_CAR_VALUE = 1;
    final int WHITE_CAR_VALUE = 1;
    final int GREEN_CAR_VALUE = 2;
    final int YELLOW_CAR_VALUE = 3;
    final int BLUE_CAR_VALUE = 4;
    final int ORANGE_CAR_VALUE = 5;
    final int CYAN_CAR_VALUE = 0;
    final int DARK_GREY_CAR_VALUE = 0;
    final int GREY_CAR_VALUE = 0;
    final int LIGHT_GREY_CAR_VALUE = 0;
    final int MAGENTA_CAR_VALUE = 0;
    final int PINK_CAR_VALUE = 0;



    //Calculated players average
    double avgScore1;
    double avgScore2;


    //Variables
    // players name input
    String name1;
    String name2;
    String playerOne;
    String playerTwo;
    String name;

    //Players sequence
    boolean playerSequence;
    int currentPlayer;
    int player;

    //Variables for players scoring
    int player1Total;
    int player2Total;
    int scoreInning = 0;

    //Final score
    int score =0;

    int won = 0;

    int playGame = 0;

    String getColour;
    int innings = 0; //starts count for innings
    int colourNum = -1;
    String colour;
    int getScoreByColour;

    int vehicleType = -1;

    boolean isCar = (vehicleType !=0);

    //Game Rules
    System.out.println("Car Cricket Game");

    playerOne = sc.next();

    System.out.print("Please enter the name of the other player: ");
