Paint. Not rust. Something like that all rusty and crap looks like... crap. Something exactly the same with a fresh coat of paint looks... fresh. Sigh. To go through all that effort of cutting and sawing and mating ends and sanding and welding and... not paint it afterwards. Sigh.

I dunno, sweetie. To me it looks authentic. The tires appear fresh, the windows blacked against intrusion (eyes? sunlight? starlight?) and the rust seems a statement: don't mess with me, I don't trim the hair in my ears or double-comb my hair but I part the road in front of me and leave the dust behind.

It's a statement.

Of course, tie-dye paint would be better.

I just love the Willie Wonka engineering of this thing.

Okay so now I've got visions of tiny men in chocolate striped jumpers manning crank-turned wheels and a man in a tall brown beaver hat giggling maniacally... and doesn't the exhaust smell fantastic?
