  4. They say everyone is six degrees from being related somehow to Kevin Bacon....

    I like the color as well. So sick of rusty and/or primered cars considered "finished". Back in the day the ultimate goal was to have as nice a car as possible, if it was in primer it was only because you couldn't afford or didn't have the skills to apply paint(I have both problems).
