Lost in shadow
I saw a newish Caddy yesterday when I was driving home with Adam from Meh-may’s house (insert standard French disclaimer here). It was one of those STS jobs that’s all the rage these days. It had a silver hood, chrome grill… and no bumper. I thought to myself, “that’s a damn shame, wasting a perfectly good Caddy like that.” As we drew closer and passed each other I saw the two-tone paint job: silver on top (possibly gray) and black from the door handles down. It was then that I noticed the bumper… it was there after all, painted black like the bottom half of the car.
From the side, the two-tone looked tres chic. It’s too bad the color scheme makes it look like the car belongs up on blocks in front of a mobile home (from the front). That particular shade of black looked like a perfect shadow, making the bumper virtually disappear (from a distance).
It kinda makes you want to go out and get onyx caps for your front teeth, for that “I’ve taken one too many shots to the face” look.
