Yeah Ray, adoption leaves too much of a paper trail -- better to just leave them by the side of the road!
I painted a Cutlass for a friend. Took it from oxidized gray to beautiful black. I was quite proud of it. He got a lot of compliments on the car after that. Kept it 3 weeks then sold it! If I had known that I would have turned down the job. I spent longer than that getting it prepped.
