Ugly Paint Jobs
#1
I think I'd have been in the running for Ugliest paint job on a 71-73 Mustang. The picture is from the day I bought it and got it back home.

The car was painted with a brush, green flames and all. But there was just something that I saw in her that made me take her home.

It had funky green interior (smelled horrible). But I drove it with a big smile on my face.

It was so obnoxious everybody dug it. Me included.

Let's see those ugly paint jobs that folks have put on our cherished cars...

To each his/her own.

I think I will refrain because my tastes are pretty much for the stock look and I would hate to offend someone who has invested a lot of time and money into a project that I don't particularly like. I recenly saw a 4 door Nova at a car show that fits that description...
I have seen quite a few modded/custom paint jobs that are really nice.
-And quite a few that aren't so nice. Unfortunately most owners of projects tend to cut corners. The attention to detail suffers and it shows.
Cheap restorations whether modded or not end up looking like - well cheap restorations.

This is the main reason, if buying a car today - I'd prefer either one that has been meticulously restored or one, while not restored, has not been changed much from stock configuation.

Anything poorly done, Christmas or Halloween color combinations, or pink. Oh yeah, van murals.
