Couple of auto show shots

Couple of shots taken with my new slr. No Photoshop touch-ups except for reducing image size. Looked way better before shrinking down but cannot post up 6.5mb files here LOL.

I know, strange. On the other hand it would match my matte street triple, lol.

Matte is probably going to be the new "silver" thats so freaking popular with cars. Once MB starts doing it on their production vehicles, everyone else is going to offer it on their lux-o-junk. I dont remember too many cars back in the 80's other than MB being silver type colors. Hell I was sick of seeing pewter suburbans and tahoes when I worked at the conversion company. Probably more than half the suv's we built were pewter (or silver for fords and dodge).







BTW 7000 post.

I'm not crazy, my mother had me tested.

Just using "silver" as an example.

I kinda like the flat "lighter" black but I like that on a Magnum, or a 300 or something... just my .02. For the price of an SL, it would piss me off getting that paint at that price.

I guess in the end it does achieve the purpose of a $100K+ car........it does get your attention for those who want to be seen. Kinda the same idea of a lime green Lambo, maybe not attractive but it does get you noticed.
