Some people.... make that a lot of people - view cars as mere utilitarian
conveyances for getting from one place to another (not as often now,
what with gas prices being what they are. But that's a rant for another time).
I look at a lot of cars as rolling sculpture - a moving testament to the metal
workers art (or fiberglass and composite as the case may be). As somebody
who likes to think of himself as a fabricator - not great, but better than serviceable,
cars like this really just blow me away.... And to leave it in the polished aluminum.
You can hide a lot of flaws with paint, but a polished body shows ALL flaws.
