Maybe I just don't have enough money to blow, but I just am not a fan of painting animals on cars. Maybe if I had three vipers and didn't know what to do with a wad of money sitting in my pocket, I would consider painting an animal on my car, but I would have to have several other vipers sitting around that I wouldn't be afraid to be seen in.
Old hot rods with flames can be cool. Vans with Boris Vallajo style airbrush on the side = not cool. Maybe I'm just grumpy, someone was just talking to me while chewing with their mouth open. That drives me nuts.
The artistic stuff is ok for motorcycles, but I prefer to keep it simple
on cars - maybe a little pearl in the clearcoat.
But I love Scott's new hood design - it really has lowered the price
of used stock hoods.
