I may have lost my mind a little....
« on: January 29 2019, 05:52:00 PM »
So I got bored a few nights ago and thought It'd be a good idea to buy me a NECKCAR.
Now I'm torn on the paint job.    Lightning McQueen or Ricky Bobby WonderBread?


 
Or something goofy like Cheeze Wiz. :)



I can't be having ''Jasper Engines'' on my shit!!!!

A lot of broken parts does not make you a racer; it makes you a slow learner.

Cool!  First of all, you have to change the number to 69.

That car may not be painted. Most of the go fast/turn left guys went to a wrap years ago.
I would probably get a plain refrigerator white wrap and put a large bar code on the roof. I would then call Walmart in Bentonville. For $2-$3 mil and a couple of Great Value stickers, they could sponsor my Generic Racecar. Money, no coupons.

This one is paint with stickers on a metal car.
I liked the idea of using wraps, but the outline of the stickers would show through.   Might not be that bad with white, but a red Lighting McQueen would probably really stick out.


What's really odd is I was doing some research last night and found out this car was featured in a video game back in '03, and it's still going strong today.   For some reason this game is the 'best AI NECKCAR' game built, and computer nerds have been modding it and updating the cars since.

(I know shit about NECKCAR, I think its stupid and it's dumb they call what they do 'racing'. It's basically the professional wrasslin' of motorsports.)

That's the plan.    Right up until some rich redneck gives me $10,000 more than I have in it.   :icon_lol:

I guess it would be fun for a few days but enter /exit like the duke boys would get old pretty quick. But setting off car alarms sure would be fun.
