Sets is apart in a crowd of challengers, say there was a car show with 10 challengers in a line... my eye would probably go to the one that has the paint job that is different first. Really the car is an attention getter. The paint isnt what I would do with it but everyone likes their own sort of thing

An AMC Gremlin would stand out too.

Thank you very much. Colors not withstanding, the paint scheme ruins the lines of the car.

Not the paint job I want but its not the worst that I've seen (think General Lee) The car is still stock so while the paint job is not one I would want at least there are no changes to the body.

Looks decent to me, just a rarer color scheme. Would love to see an FF owner give their thoughts. Surprised anyone doing exterior mods would be critical on this one. Pile on effect?

If this shot was downloaded from the net, then I believe the OP may not know the owner. But a car all alone in the lot, parked crossways to the lot stripes? Not even a car show, just an empty parking lot "glamour shot". I'm wondering whether the OP knows the owner. No big deal either way, but I'm complimenting the car.
There is a reason why that color scheme is "rare"! The car should be executed.

Come on now Dane, you know who owns this car. Who is it?

The interesting thing about this car's lines, they seem to morph to the paint job and exterior treatment. The body lines almost look like different cars depending on the paint and stripes (and likely the angle of photography or view). I won't argue your own tastes of course, but funny thing is, I like what that paint job does to the car's lines in this case. The wheels will look small if you focus only on the wheels, but my eye always include the tire. I like the old school wider tire look (despite the fact I have chrome 20s, and like those too).

This sucks. You people condemn someone's car for a paint job that doesn't go "Ghetto" or "Batman". It is clean. I don't personally like it. But there are way uglier things that have been done to these cars and there are yet more to come. Have you folks ever seen a 55 Chevy done up in the two-tone paint scheme? It looks at home. This was somebody's attempt at the same sort of thing. Quality of the paint job looks fine to me so I would say the "execution of the paint" statement was way off. Not complimenting the lines? C'mon! The mid-body jump to go over the rear wheels follows the body lines to a "t". Maybe if the colors were the same old Black and Red, this would have never been posted? Nothing wrong with this person's way of modifying his/her ride. Not my taste exactly but I can certainly make room for it better than some gawdy garbage I've seen that glorifies some thug/gang looking genre' . There. That's my opinion. I didn't exactly chime in with the rest.

I don't know the owner, but I did not post anything I wouldn't say to him/her.

The picture was an internet find.

Good thread!
