Not me, My job is spending many hours getting the bodywork its best, so I prefer shiney. Looking at all the shiney nice looking cars in hot rod and car craft in my teenage days is what made me decide to go into paint and body, if I only knew more about what the trade was really like back then.
Many body men do tend to drive a rat rod though, at least something rusted and dented. Because one they are usually too busy slaving away on others junk to ever get around to or find the enthusiam to do there own, and two, the profession leaves many too broke to drive a really nice vehicle (at least if working for someone else). Kind of like mechanics driving around in an out of tune car.
