Since coining the phrase "Lipstick on a Pig" once the Pentas were installed on my SL, I decided it fit. (please refer to avatar).

Nobette made it official by giving me a bobble head. (do not fool around and re-quote this statement)

Nobby, how does you porker feel now that you have the holy pentas installed? I have a set of 16in rims to install and want to know how it feels with them on.

I like the bobble swine, good luck with putting it into hibernation.

Too early in the night, and "G" rating still applies for a couple more hours :)

It's like wearing a nice suit.
Makes you look and feel good.

Odd, I have been using that same old Sarah Palin phrase with my wife to try to bring some sense of reality in choosing a set of R107 wheels for her.

She wants it nice and pretty NOW. I keep telling her that we need to be on the lookout for sellers who take a $3K car, put $2k in paint and bondo and $1K in interior and sell it for $12K. We could just as easily do that ourselves, rather than find the cars that have been pampered from the get go.

I'm thinking of spraying them Lapis Blue. I wonder if I can fit them with USDOTs?

The placement between the dash cracks makes the bobble head look heavy - as in it being the cause of the cracks !! :D

Nice addition.
