Mary-Kay - Boxster? Why???

I found this while doing a google search yesterday. I feel sorry for the husband of whoever owns this Boxster. They painted such a beautiful car such an awful color, including the Sport Classics.

This should be a crime!

Actually it would've looked alright if they hadn't painted the tastefully matched 2-tone interior and the wheels.

Why the mesh beside the wind deflector??? WHY??????

Have you any idea how much Pepto Bismol I could sell if I drove that car? It's a rollin' ATM I tell you!

Here's how it would go...

I drive around and people say, "The color of that car is making me sick to my stomach."

I say, "I work for Pepto Bismol and painted it that color purposely. Would you like to buy a bottle since you're now feeling out of sorts?"

I tell you this car is a gold mine for the right salesman.

(ps - reminds me of the joke about the guy who sold all those defective toothbrushes after roping people into eating cookies made with dog poop.)

That's disgusting. It totally looks like its painted with Peptol Bismol. If anything they should have added some metallic flake or some gloss clearcoat on the top. It looks like a disgusting flat paint... no depth at all.

I don't know. Looks like the best and most effective theft deterrent system on the planet. Nobody, and I mean nobody, is going to steal that car.

I don't like pink, but even if it was a likeable color, they should not have pinked the interior, the air intake vents and the wheels. There's the crime. No class.
