(background: Loki is my '73 Camaro which goes to all of my book events within driving distance. According to the U.S. government, he is my business vehicle, which I modestly think is the best use of a tax deduction ever.)
I couldn't decide what color red, however, and finally, a few months ago, I had a dream that Loki was this awesome burnt orange/ red color. I spent all day hunting it down. So now Loki is officially "Tangerine Kandy" (which my friend Jackson says would make an awesome stripper name)(I'm not going to use it, so you guys can if you like). In full sun, Loki looks bright red. But in low light, it turns pumpkin orange. And I kept the stripes, because stripes make cars go faster.
I'm bound and determined to make the Great American Road Trip (maybe to Minnesota around, oh, say, FOREVER's release date?) in this car in 2011. You wait and see. It'll happen. Also on the list of to do? Finally get around to putting air-conditioning in it. And one day, when I'm rich and famous, convert it to electric.
I'm aware this is CarPorn and CarSpam and I'm not sorry.
