About “BARRS AM hood”

I thought about custom painting the car for years, but did not want to lose the sport gold color> The first thoughts where of ghost flames over and over I could not find the right ones that triped my trigger. Then I saw a Trans Am in a race at Sanoma, yellow with bright red striping, I went with a metalic red. I have had such great comments at shows of how it looks classy to mean looking! This is the look I wanted and am prode of the look it gives me when cruiesing.
