Grotesque, yet enticingly attractive. I wonder what his reserve is set at. I might have to beg for a kitchen pass.

The epitome of the "patina", "barn find" craze.

There was a creative fellow in the Speedster club (replicas group) that ground metal particles into his clearcoat to give his plastic car a rusty finish. It was very effective. (I did much the same with my right eye by procrastinating to get the removal of a metal sliver, ouch).

I had one of those, after they got the metal out they had to grind off a piece of my eye. I started grinding in a face shield after that.

Faux patina paint on the Speedster is okay, but I think this one is more convincing.
