On the way into work this morning, I pull up behind an old Lincoln Town Car or Mark. It changes lanes and I pull up along side it.
It is at this point that I can see the car is a funky shade of metallic green with an equally funky shade of metallic purple used to make a 2 or 3" tall stripe along the fenderline from front to rear. Add to this a vinyl top to match the stripe and some wire basket wheels with white wall tires and you are done.
Where in the hell does one go to find metallic pea green paint and purple paint that only exists as the color for a child's TV dinosaur or stomach medicine? And then how does one get a vinyl top to match said Barney paint?
