How much should you pay to get it stripped and repainted?
Good question.
A better question would be how high is the seller to ask that prove?
 
2021-01-17 1:07:16 AM  
Price.
Dammit.
 
2021-01-17 1:10:42 AM  
A ho lot of money
 
2021-01-17 1:13:19 AM  
About $100 in Tijuana
 
2021-01-17 1:14:34 AM  
It would cost me about 4 traffic tickets a month.

I'd make the paint guy pay me for that.

They stuff your seats with horse shiat if you get an upholstery job there.

How much would my bail be if someone painted my car like that?

Bender says.... "Pimp Mobile".

IDK, subby, I probably couldn't drive that in Long Beach without provoking violence, but I'm pretty sure that's the coolest 1991 Caddy EB on the road, anywhere. I would rather see cars like that than 10000 bland examples of early 90s automotive pablum.

/Humbly suggest it lose the whitewalls, though.
//I have one of those hood ornaments :)
///Kinda geeky about old car stuff

That was the rumor when I was there

/I don't even want to say how long ago that was, but that sh*t would be coprolites by now

Is a paint job like that even street legal outside Miami?

Low miles.giant motor. I'd take it. Give it a flat matte black canned spray paint job and claim is a bmw special 'frozen' color scheme.

I have a white Camry. Cops don't even look at me. It's nice.

Except for the paint job and rims it appears to be dead stock. Doesn't even look to be bagged on the suspension or they would have shown it dropped as well. The world's ugliest paint job probably cost 2 or 3 times the value of the car and at least to me dropped the value of the car. Wouldn't be seen in that on a bet.

that's sharp
 
2021-01-17 2:34:03 AM  
As I am comfortable with my sexuality and lack of virginity, I would not pay for that.
 
2021-01-17 2:41:35 AM  
I'd swap the rims for some Radir 5-spokes and put on wide whitewalls.

Might lose the hood ornament. Doesn't really work with the body's lines.
 
2021-01-17 4:13:14 AM  
That looks like a lot of ups.
And extras.

Does it come with purple velvet coat, and "pimp hat" with a peacock feather?

Tree fiddy at best.

That's a hell of a paint job, but those wheels need to be wire to match the trunk and the feel of the car. Pretty sure it came with wire wheels from the factory.

But aside from the $8000 paint job, it's stock. I'd expect it to be bagged and have a booming system. But, its stock. Not even worth it as a project.
 
2021-01-17 6:57:54 AM  
It isn't my thing, but to someone, it is.  And I respect that.  Whoever did it has some talent.  I'd let him paint flames on my truck....

Obviously they went for the TruCoat when this vehicle was originally purchased.

I'm not sure but I like to think The Fruit Stripe Gum Company and I could work something out.

Looks like those caramel lollipops with the colors in the middle
 
2021-01-17 11:28:07 AM  
I wouldn't pay one thin dime. That is so ugly.

Well, they accepted vomit as a medium of exterior automotive finish, so...

Yeah, no. No way you can prove it is your vomit.  For all we know you're on possession of stolen vomit.

Don't try to drag me into your underworld.
