that for all the great feedback everybody!
 
     To answer a few questions... i would LOVE to get it up and running one day, but im not sure i have the resources.  For now, i think I'm going to donate the car to our school for it's sculpture garden.  (As pres. of the national art honor society, i get to decide what goes on display Wink ).  If that falls through, i know plenty of public gardens that would love to keep the car.  if its on display in the public, i feel like its going to good use instead of a becoming a waste.

secondly, i used acrylic paint- a LOT of it.  At first, i used house paint mixed with different tints, but it was way too runny and transparent.  I cleaned the car well and just painted right onto it.  Finally, i sealed it with this car spray my dad had in the garage.

p.s: the car survived it's first snowfall today! it was so gorgeous under the blanket of white...

haha nah.. it doesn't drive; there's no transmission or engine Sad its still pretty sweet though.


I kinda comissioned my technologically-advanced friend to rig up a lighting system, so the headlight (singluar) and tail lights light up!  its gorgeous.. im thinking of stringing christmas lights on it and leaving it in my driveway for the holidays!

so i planned this project for our high school's spirit week.. The class of 2008 decided on a 60's theme, so i found this VW Bug on craigslist for.. thats right.... ONLY $20.00!!! (.. well, it's just a smashed up shell..but its still awesome!!).  After much body work and a killer paint job (if i do say so myself), the car turned into this MASTERPIECE! oh i am so very proud!! Cheesy

from a dull car...


...to CAR-TASTIC! Tongue
