Filter and Create a Column of Data

I have a workbook that has data in several columns. I want to create a new column that consists of the values in one colum,n when another column meets a certain criteria. As an example, given the list below, it contains 2 columns. I want to create another column that has a formula that will contain a list of venhicles that are blue. Thus, it would contain '2012 Caravan' in row 1 and '2011 Chrysler 300' in row 2. I want the rows contiguous rather than having something in row 1 and another value in row 4:

'2012 Caravan'   'blue'
'2008 Mustang'  'red'
'2010 Corvette'  'yellow'
'2011 Chrysler 300'  'blue'

I am using Excel 2010.

Because I'm not. I want user to see ALL data, and also specific data in a separate column.
