check out my new penske paintjob (off topic)
#1
So- You all know I like to paint carsets, but they aren't the only thing I paint.

Ever since I saw the team Penske cars back several times in the 90s when I used to go to CART races in Toronto and Detroit- I have been in love with the bright fluorescent orange that the Penske cars were.

Back in the day before our modern cameras and TVs, the TV cameras could not pick up color very well. If you watch the old races on youtube, and compare them to the modern broadcasts the colors are much more vivid on TV today. Red cars use to look dark. Penske painted the Marlboro sponsored cars bright fluorescent reddish-orange because it showed up bright red on TV.

Because I love it so much I did some research and bought the authentic paint that these cars were painted with. It is dayglow "fire orange". I did a penske theme in my bedroom!

These colors do not photograph well with my cell phone. In real life, it looks exactly like the car shown below.

I hereby present the worlds first penske painted bedroom!

@Tjerk, doesn't this remind you of the police cars colours in Holland? Together with the dark blue it would make for an interesting paintjob combination

It may very well be the exact same colour actually.

Cool. Does staring at the ceiling hurt your eyes?

The colour of my walls is more like the one from your floor (under the can)
