Sweeeeeeeeeeeeet

Actually I have seen that wrap on a Smart car down in PDX

Check out this wild ride.

We had this Celestial wild card for about 10 days while we waited for our first Smart.

I am actually thinking about having our new "Green" beast done with the Celestial wrap job..

The color on our new car is hideous, but the beast had all the top flight goodies we wanted.

They had other colors but not the equipment.

WE HAD TONS OF WOW comments on the little wild card

Oh yesssssssssssssss

When we bought our first Smart it was in transit and not available to use for about a week, so the salesman took us down to the "pen" where they keep the herd of little beasties.

The car with the celestial wrap job was sitting by itself but directly in our path to the group of others in the lease/loaner fleet, and I had to stop a gaze in amazement at the stunning beauty of the little car.

The salesman immediately commented "Most folks gasp and walk away"

I turned to him and said "We'll take it"

What a head turner for sure.

The company that did the wrap was PDX WRAPS and they are 20 minutes from us in Sherwood.

Hard to misplace that one in a parking lot

I am not in a hurry, but want to do something to be rid of the "LIZARD PUKE GREEN"

But even with the hideous color we love the rig

Points to ponder when shopping a new(ish) vehicle......

Most folks don't care what other people think about their ride. I don't think we have a problem in this case.

How much of the (hideous) color can you see/notice while driving?

How much time do you actually spend looking at the exterior when not driving?

Does an unappealing color make you like it less, otherwise?

An "ugly" car is less likely to be stolen. Likewise, a more "flashy" car, or one that appears to have a higher value (whether or not it actually does) gets more attention, even by thieves.

Is the color (that you don't like) a premium that costs more?

How does the color affect resale value?

Great points indeed.

Pretty much a moot point by the aforementioned details
