Here's a little story behind my beautiful purple wonder..
Chapter 1. My parents bought her for me in 99, 200$ with a blown motor. I had a 87 parts car so cool. a white 88 Auto Duke. Just what I wanted. Drove it like that for about 10-11 months... I was on the way to my brothers, woman pulled out in front of me, skimmed the back of her car. Ugly black marks & a broken marker light, no biggie. But felt like a color change, In comes Twilight Blue. BEAUTIFUL color, was painted about a month or so later.
Chapter 2. I took her off the road due to personal reasons. After putting tags & insurance back on it, was going to the store to put gas in it with my brother following in his stealth behind me. Sitting in the parking lot, man backs into me. *crunch* Alot of colorful metaphors went through my mind to say at this stupid ignorant old man that backed into me. But I withheld my anger. Insurance company gave me 1380$ to fix it, yay, remember I have a 87 parts car with all the parts I need. I didn't care about the extra money so I bought the stuff I needed to fix & repaint my car. Gave the rest of the money to my brother, the one that was behind me(arn't I nice, nearly 600-700$). Fixed the rear clip, installed a sunroof bought for 50$ and was ready.
Chapter 3. I sanded the car, and for everyone who's talked to me knows, I did a wicked job on the parts I sanded with the air sander, lots of goofups but no fear, parts car has the parts I need. Anyway, painted the car, Purple.. beautiful color even more. And now, everyday I see it. And I see the goofups in the bodywork. I get more and more angry at myself. So this fall, it will be repainted again. I still have all the paint I need so cool.
After thoughts, the reason it only has one wiper on it is cuz I left the other wiper at my other brothers house(where we painted it). It is back on it now. I have recently apparently decided that my paint sucks and have insisted on scratching it up with the sunroof So I must get to work handsanding the parts that will go on my 88. One day she will be beautiful again. She is my baby, and No, you can't have her
EDITED: Sorry for the long, confusing rant about my 88. If anyone wants any other pictures, email me and I'll send em to ya.
