Not So Fine

6 Mar

Screaming green is generally not a popular colour for cars in South Africa. We tend to go for white because it has better resale value. (It’s also practical in a hot country, and more visible on the road, something I learned all about after driving my black Fiat Stilo with lights on in the pre LeadSA era.)


Who knows why any sane person would buy a VW Scirocco in a shade calculated to make an otherwise good-looking car resemble an African giant bullfrog. Was it a special deal? Were they not prepared to wait for the colour they really wanted? In any event, the owner has clearly decided to hell with it, and made the car even more obvious with a curiously mismatched doucheplate.

O SO Fine

Spotted in Woodmead.

Not really all that fine, really.
