  1. Go to the Craigslist ad and check out the interior! It just proves that this guy huffed a can of every single color on this car.

    1. Wow, thanks for that tip. I think I am more impressed with the interior than the exterior. Paint is easy, but patched upholstery is a whole 'nother level. The weird thing is that I don't hate this (but I feel like I should...).

    2. But, but... the dashboard, console, carpet & door cards... they are so...normal. with all that work to upholster seats, seems the carpet at least coulda been altered with a modest collection of residential samples.

    3. I have to wonder if the owner redid the seats to fit the theme, or found a screaming deal on those seats and decided the reasonable action was to paint the car to match.

  3. Harlequin always reminds of a 1980's hair band!

  4. I read and reread the ad hoping it was a wrap. I guess there is still hope.

    Very Keith Haring esque.
    I like this weird looking creation. It would be fun to turn it into a fire breathing spec car and kick ass with it

    My car in 1982.

    Keith Haring drew a bunch of falling babies on the headliner , but that was when he was sort of not a big deal and I abandoned the car when reverse gear stopped working.

  10. All of those pastel colors makes a person wonder if the owner is driving an agenda.
