It's been years since I've seen a Mary Kay car on the road. Years ago, you had to take a caddy. Then they let you pick the car for the "treatment".

How many lipsticks do you have to sell to get one?

Seriously, thats a years wage at a fairly decent job!

I'll bet its a reward for higher-ups that crack the whip on their underlings *hardcore*

All I've seen are Pontiacs and Caddys, Hell, I'd wear it, sell it and worship the goddess, Mary Kay Ash, were she to let me have one with black interior(salmon is wayyyyy too much) hahaha

and im a boy![:p]

kids these days... but funny thing is.. nobody remembers about ashly olson.. you know why?because she drives a ricemobile... try to guess which of these cars is hers!!
Uhhhh, this isn't about the Olsen twins. Mary Kay is a cosmetics company. When one achieves certain sales goals in a given time period, they are awarded a car redone in one of their signature "pink" colors. I belive the color is based on one of their lipstick choices.

I really, really hope that is someone's photoshopped trickery.

That color, both interior and exterior, is absolutely hideous. That's got to be the worst resale color of all time if it's real.

i think its mildly fabulous.

i dont know how long all that car underneath all that pink would keep me interested, however. the novelty would wear off and youd be left with a big pink car after a while.

it'd cost way too much to replace all the pink interior, hmm.

well nevermind[:)]

No photoshop. The Mary Kay award is real and they do re-work the car for appearance. While not up to most folk's taste, as LilBrat notes, it is a free car. That should ease the pain somewhat. [:D]

And it's not exactly just ANY car...it's a 180K mercedes. I'd sell it and get an SL55 WITHOUT the pink[;)] and maybe even get something with the leftover cash.

Good luck trying to find a buyer for a pink/salmon/fuscia/whatever SL55.... that is terrible!

Um, I may be wrong but I think they have to do a ton of work and meet certain goals to get it "free". They may not have to sign any check to a dealer but there's real effort involved before they get to walk into the dealership.
