      Art Car with Kelly Lyles

      She's had a lot of fun with vehicles

      And in case you are wondering. Yes, it's different. And guaranteed to bring smiles to people's faces (or at least a quizzical look)

      It's evident she likes to horse around with cars. Is it TCL approved?

      Who cares. She's enjoying life.

      It's a "Hybird"

      It's nice that phones are so fast on the draw. Hopped out of the car and I had like seconds to get these off before he was off revving down the street.

      It was for sale - 500BGL = $300 aprox

      Nobody cares for Commie cars over there, so if you want one, it's only few hundred $$
