When pink is cool

I love the colour pink, but not so much when it comes to cars. I'd much prefer a car in black, white or silver rather than a bright colour, as I tend to get over coloured cars and change my mind about what I like very quickly. However, there are a few exceptions. Here are 13 examples of when pink is super rad, and I would TOTALLY go there. Just FYI, it's a pretty random mix of different styles. Just go with it...

Because Kei car. This Suzuki Wagon R rocks my world. I want this as my daily driver so bad.

Because Japan. External mounted oil cooler, G-nose, over-sized bodykit - and those air horns! This pink Z is so radical.

Because 1957 2-door Cadillac. Probably my number one dream car.

Because 1959 2-door rag-top Cadillac. Something about a baby pink drop-top Caddy with big white walls and an all-white interior makes the inner girl in me jump up and down and cry with delight.

Because Hayashi Yayoi. My dream wheels!

Because RWB. Because Porsche. Because race car. Whatever, just give me it.

Because TRA Kyoto. The picture does the talking.

Because SSR Mark III. My other dream wheels! I always wanted to buy a set of these for my old MX5 and paint the centres pink. Gimme, gimme!

 photo RADZ.jpg

Because date. 3rd of May 1982. That's seven years before I even existed on this planet!

Because P1. Well, duh? Don't need to explain this one.

Because juxtaposition. Aggressive drift car + pink steering wheel = just ain't care.

 photo lamborghini-aventador-pink-paint-1.jpg

Because galaxy-wrapped Aventador. These photos are old but whatever. I love it, want it, and need it.

Because Hachiroku. I'm pretty sure you could paint an AE86 any colour and it would still be cool. Love the wing mirrors and the gold meshies too. Such a winning combo!
