The names have been changed to protect the innocent.

well, are those authentic gangsta walls? Those need to go. And the baby blue hue works if it's a babe's ride, otherwise, the paint's gotta go as well. Luckily, it can be un-ruined. I'd look like those fellows too if I were driving it!

Not very butch, is it?


It is not the color by itself as very often brit. cars have horrible colors like olive or brown or grape or undecided mustard. It it the whitewall tires and white stripes that doesn't match. Imagine this car with a navy top, it is not worse than french blue.

...........kinda' like a French racing [sacre] blue !!

Love the colour...Had 1972 VAGA the same colour...was a real babe magnet...But then that was back in 1972

I have learned not to judge another person's taste in cars and colors. Some Brit colors are a bit strange. MG Black Tulip, purple in any other language. My TR6 was what I consider that awful Brown used in 76 until I had it repainted in dark blue also not a popular color but I like it. Hving said all above the car is a bit strange looking and probably will get few admiring glances. Never can tell what people will say. I had someone ask me what year Porsche I was driving.

I think the chap at the helm is wearing a white jacket and powder blue ball cap..

Babes sure have changed since 1972.

It still doesn't look as prissy as a Miata with a bra!
