Not worrying about door dings and scratches is just an added bonus, we all know as soon as a car is painted there will be a runaway shopping cart or ahole who will park next to you and ding ya..it ALWAYS happens sooner or later. Never happens when driving a winter beater, right? As far as car shows I gravitate towards the patina style cars just because they are unique, and sometimes have a lot of mods you really have to look for to see, like my cars. I like to see how others solve problems. Last one on door dings, this was my last build before the 37 Buick, you think I was worried about door dings? Damn right! Would this car look have looked right as a patina build? Hell no IMO.
