There is painting your car and then there is painting your car.




Check out this website, it seems pretty cool. Its a European website but these pictures are from a show in Australia. Absolutely crazy.

Thumbs down

OK, I don't care how fast that car is, I don't care how well it handles... I don't care if it's an STi-powered WRX or not. All I think when I see it is: "HORRIBLE".

Just goes to show how bad taste can kill a good thing.

No doubt..It's a killer paint job, but a car like that, you wonder if the dude even drives it. It's like " here's my nice car, but I can't drive it cause I don't want to get it dirty". He probably drives an Si for his second car... he he he

Notice the mirror below the car. Not only is the exhaust system all nice and shiney, but there are tiger stripes on the bottom of the car!
Chances are, this is a dedicated show car and doesn't see the city streets much.
Personally, I think its kinda cool, in a totally over the top way.

well it's either got a well-concealed FMI or it's naturally aspirated.

so my bet is it's all show, no go.

Cool

Colin,

Yes, the car does appear to have a FMI, and a turbocharger... so it probably isn't a case of "no go"! You can see the intercooler piping in the engine bay and the intercooler itself behind the registration plate... silly place to put a reg. plate!

No argument about the garish looks of the car though.

I believe it is the same one that I have seen on the net before. Except that it used to have chrome wheels and the jungle seens weren't on the car. The snake crawling up the center console is pretty cool. Maybe the guy works for Exxon or Kellogs and that is the new revised tiger for their ads.

Hey, I like the paint job. I think it's cool. And if you think about it, the paint isn't all that different from those on good ol' hot rodding scene.

Does anyone know what kind of wheels those are? I think they would look great on my car in silver or chrome.
