I like this car. Clean and simple. Yet, it has that pop with that yellow paint. I think I liked the Porsche steelies better though. Gave it a rally racer look.

The name "frenchy" will always remind me of the character from In Living Color. You need a sticker on the back window that says "I'm hip, I'm slick, and all women love my cologne!"
