Hey everyone I wrote a story on the Bitchin Barbie Car for the Autoholics website and they actually posted it!!!

This is my fun toy.
I bought it 7 years ago and have taken it from stock 290 at the rear wheels to what it is today 365 rear wheels and ...mine
Original color was Midnight Blue (Corvette color) but it had stress cracks and was in need of a paint job.
I picked something no one else had and won't, because it's my custom mix color, I have the original fomula. Hope you enjoy reading about my beauty. She's more than a looker, she holds her own on the road.
