After lots of pondering, we agreed that painting it to look like the Gran Torino from Starsky and Hutch. It started out pink and purple but with a little (ok, a lot) of blue tape and a few cans of Krylon paint (the Rustoleum didn't work well AT ALL!!!), I transformed it.
From girly and boring:
To totally badass:
This Gran Torino Cozy Coupe features custom pinstriping, a chrome [look] grille, custom alloy (or whatever CDs are made of) wheels, power steering, a horn that will probably be completely ignored by all the other kids on the road and is powered by the two shortest legs on our street.
See that light up top? It actually glows at night (not that the boys are ever up late enough to see this but I am and not EVERYTHING is for them):
(light created using a disassembled Dollar Tree solar garden light
glued into an upside down painted plasticware container.)
Taking it for a test ride:
Traffic on the driveway was awful:
The darn thing overheated and he had to push it home (not really, he doesn't know how to power it from inside the car just yet):
And you thought all that was cool??? Just check out this after-market customization I added a few days later:
Dude, you dropped a Goldfish
