lol, I took it from Philip's photobucket account

I had the Legacy polished and buffed Saturday, it looks stunning! I didn't realize it was black with red metallic, I don't think I have ever seen a paint job like that. It is weird

I went photo crazy on it yesterday and will try to get the pictures posted today or tomorrow

I'm loving the Scooby

She has already picked up a nickname as well, Red Dragon. It was the first thing to come to my mind after seeing the car in the bright sun after being polished/buffed/waxed. I thought it was just a black car but when in the bright sun it starts to turn red because of the red metallic flake. I keep picking up these cars with weird paint jobs. My E36 was silver but turned blue in certain lighting, the M5 was black but again in certain lighting it was navy blue, and now here I am with a scooby that is black pretty much all the time except for when it is in direct daylight the car turns red

It needs a new paint job though . Unfortanetely the owner didn't take care of the exterior and the paint is cracking all over the car, it is an awesome paint job to, I hope when I have it repainted they can match it

I'm at work so I can't really post any pictures, will try to do tonight.

I wanted to make it a thread of it's own, but thought people would say, oh no another craigslist post. I just read it again and laughed just as hard as the first.

MY OT FOR TODAY!

Had traffic school, holy sh!t I hated it. I got on the freeway when I got out and just opened up my car, and what do I see??? A cop in the dark, thankfully I wasn't over the speed limit yet so I just played it cool. It was a sign not to speed, so I stayed in the slow lane and cruise controlled at 64 alllll the way home..


One more class tomorrow, thankfully my friend is doin it so it's not half bad. But ugh, its so boring. We are watching "Red Asphalt 5" tomorrow..
