Nope! Ain't gonna happen! You're too young to remember the "Neon Era", which was in the 70's/80's. That was prime time early 20's for me. There was neon stuff everywhere: T-shirts, double windshield wipers, neon steering wheels, etc There seemed to be 3 primary colors they focused on: Fuchsia(red), Yellow, and Green. Dreadful time to be alive. The yellow looked/looks like a really awful green to me.
One thing I'll have to contend with is the huge amount of RED stuff I have. Gobs of stuff from my Red Baron phase. At least 25 red t-shirts, red hats and jackets, red handled tools, and all sorts of other red stuff. I don't even like red. But they match the car.
I like yellow stuff more, but not by much more.
I used to live at the Jersey shore during the late 70's through the 80's and at the beach you tend to wear bright Summer-colored stuff. Whites, reds, oranges, yellows. My whole wardrobe was those colors. I eventually moved 60 miles back to where I grew up near Philly and I slammed full force into culture shock. NOBODY wore whites, reds, oranges, and yellows. Only black, khaki green, and other dark colors were acceptable for men to wear. But there I was with closets and dressers full of red/orange/yellow pants, jackets, etc. at age 30. I stuck out like a sore thumb. Yet, if I just drove 60 miles to the beach I was Mr. Fashionable. Weird dichotomy between the two regions just an hour's worth of driving apart. I still have a lot of that Summer-colored stuff, but I haven't worn most of it in 30 years.
Woo-hoo, I'm going to have a yellow car, I'll be able to whip out all my yellow clothes again!
Alas, most of that stuff doesn't fit me anymore......
I've worn jeans and dark blue/denim mechanic clothes for the past 30 years. Got lots of that stuff. Hmmmm.......maybe I should paint the car to look like denim jeans?
This is as close as we get to a tree these days. This metal two dimensional GT was given to me by Mark, Ooooner will have to fill in the last name for me, at the fall Auto Fair in Charlotte this year. Anyway Merry Christmas to all and to all a good night.
I am currently working on a 1974 Opel Manta Luxus, and I've gotten the cleaning and rebuild stage, but I'm left with a dilemma, the engine is in a questionable state but I believe it is salvageable, however I have been told by friends and family that I should swap the engine for a v8, but I want...
I have been working on the complete restoration of a 1971 Opel GT for the past 12 months. I have completed stripping to bare metal and the needed welding repairs and finish paint of the interior and bottom. Meanwhile a running 1970 became available in the vicinity, and I bought it. My...
