I can just hear the talk at the college campus.. "My grandad is so tight that he painted his ole beat-up stupid 2 door junk in pink and presented it as a gift.. I mean what was he thinking? I rather have preferred a SUV in a sensible green colour. I just couldn't say "no!"...". Friends feeling the pain... And shame...

OK, you have a good point.

Maybe I will have it painted 2-tone gray and put port-o-walls on it, so it will look like the car my grandpa gave to me - better?

2 tone is always good.. why are you so desperate to paint it? Are you driving a Lava by any chance? @Tcoat was nearly "married" to his...

It is truly a car of it's era.

That's a little too close to describing a shemale, but get your point.

It's a classic, timeless design that's aged well.

Yeah, just give it a couple of months, those calipers will just look dusty and dirty in a couple of months.

BTW, congratulations! Looks very sharp.

Took a couple of years for the Lava ones to start to look old.

Oh, I thought it would make it more to the granddaughters liking -

Yes, I hear that @Tcoat went through a messy divorce with his -

When he asked the new owner of his lava how he liked his "used" car, the new owner replied - "it's good, once I get it up past the used part".

if they want to complain about it, i'd figure out how to import a 1980's yugo, paint it bright pink with lime green racing stripes, and mount a flashing yellow light on top.

because you know it will stay on the side of the road more than it will stay running, so safety first!

they can either have that or buy their own car.

Messy divorce? I think not. I tenderly handed her over to her new beu and she will go on to spend her second life with somebody that loves her as much as I did. There was nothing messy about it.

OK, I'll leave it white, just cutesy it up a bit with stickers. Maybe I'll leave the dent in it so they won't have to go through the pain of suffering the first ding -
