Continuing the school girl crush analogy from the other day…
Now that I have been asked to the prom and I have convinced my date to go with a silver tux to compliment my gown, we just need to pick out our accent color. To help me visualize what he’ll look like walking towards me I photo-shopped three images. one with a dark gray, one with a maroon and one with a blue.
Because I knew when we were dancing cheek to cheek in the spotlight on the gym floor all the other girls would be jealous because of my date’s muscular, football toned backside, I photo-shopped the same three colors onto the rear view.
Donna and I had talked about maybe putting stripes on a new Miata if we bought a white one, so I wanted to take a quick look at some stripes on a silver car. A good place to see all kinds of stripes in various colors on various color Miatas is the Feztastic Stripe Gallery. After looking trough all 11 pages of silver cars using the somewhat clunky interface I found this car with the right sized stripes. The gray is what is in the original photos, I just tweaked them to come up with some other possible options. The maroon is supposed to represent the old Miata and the blue is there because that is my favorite color.
Not so sure I want to do the stripe thing, but we both are in agreement that the silver is kind of dull looking compared to all the other cars we’ve ever owned1. We need to live with the car for longer that three days before we make that kind of change. After all, I didn’t think I’d ever like the Garnet Red color of the Emperor, but after about 6 or 7 years I actually started to like it.
