Default Am I a gay fish for wanting this color on my miata?

C3LY's '03 Silver/Green Chromaflair GLX 1.8t - NewBeetle.org Forums

I saw that color turbo beetle last Sunday and it was stunning.
It was a bright silver, with color shifting highlights towards blue-green.

No that isn't what makes you gay. What makes you gay is all the ***** sucking. I make no judgments.

Can't say I like the paint.

That depends. Is the desire for the paint actually hiding the true desire for the car?

I loved some of the color shifting paint 10-15 years ago, not so much now unless it's really subtle. There's a guy around here with a factory 5 cobra that's color shifting from tangerine to an orangy gold that pretty subtle. Doesn't really look like a color shift as much as it's just really lively.

Love it! Maybe a little gay, but there's nothing wrong with that. It'd be like driving around a pearl...

Yes you're gay. We all are, check your url box.

Turbo bugs can be cool. I saw one with huge FMIC and BEGI sticker on the back, it was low and looked mean.

I don't think it's gay, but I have a reputation for liking gay colors.

+1 on liking subtle color shifting.

Somehow I also really like pearl colors; I saw a pearl white 911 and it was beautiful.

Im not a fan of any color shifting, pearl, etc.
It just looks like show car bullshit to me, and I really hate show cars. A show car is just a car that never got to be used as a car, and thats fucked up.

theres no auto body paint there to buy just smaller stuff speaker enclosures ect... that color looks like a silver base with the chalmelon color shot over the base. get a price check on that color it will prob shock the **** out of you.

That color will only work if you get matching "hot pants" to go with it...
