The T.V. was my baby-sitter.

It's been a couple of days since we painted the stripes on Pujo! To my surprise a song popped into my head as soon as I walked into Doug's shop the other night. It was the theme song to Magnum, P.I.. For about a half hour it was stuck in my head and I couldn't figure out why until I looked at the car again. In trying to make our piece of junk a little more flashy for the track, I'd unwittingly painted it like T.C.'s helicopter from Magnum. That proves I spent way too much time in front of the T.V. as a kid!




Here are some other concept paint jobs that we considered before settling on our final version...






My daughter, Shannon, didn't like any of these and suggested we paint it like this...

I liked it, but I didn't have the skill to paint it.

Get out of my brain! Too many images bringing back good times with my old buddy TV...

I like Pujo!'s current paint scheme. Future events might require a re-worked scheme.

"Starsquey et Heutch"?

As a side note: I'm seriously thinking of de-striping the Miata and applying a disco-tastic Gran Torino inspired swoosh. I'd need to buy loud street tires...
