As if a Porsche doesn't stand out enough to begin with! This blinding blue Cayman caught my eye from a block away. It was parked ever so discretely in front of a luxury apartment building, half on the sidewalk... apparently it somehow needed more attention! While I tend to be a rather discrete person, especially when it comes to automotive tastes, I have to admit that I quite liked this shade of metallic paint that stopped just short of being obnoxious.
To top it off, the owner had done a spot of customizing: it appears that they had dusted of their daughter's Bedazzler and gone to town on the licence plate bracket. Thousands of tiny fake diamonds surrounded the plate, adding a tacky finish to what was a borderline 'over-the-top' paint job. To each their own, I suppose, but I don't really know how much more noticeable the owner thought they could make their Porsche!
A security guard standing by the gate saw me looking at the car and didn't mind when I took a few pictures. He asked if I liked the car and laughed a bit when I said yes. It would seem that he wasn't all that impressed. Then again, having to stand all day beside such a reflective piece of automotive hardware might be a bit annoying. I think I'll buy him some sunglasses. I should probably get some diamond-studded ones so that he doesn't look out of place!
Welcome! My name is Paul, and I am an old-fashioned, low-pressure, low-buck car fan with lots of automotive stories to tell!
