One, because I like to try to be green (especially when it comes to plastic) but also because I am cheap - no thrifty.
Anyhow, we got our Cosy Coupe from another triplet family that was finished playing with it. It came to us already decorated with stickers and having faded plastic parts. The kids still loved it. But, I figure this spray paint find is an great way to Pimp there Ride (like the M.T.V show).
Last weekend's Michigan football game inspired me to pay homage to my alma mater and "pimp" this out in full Go Blue style.

Below are the after pics. I was surprised that this only took about a half a can of spray paint. We decorated out car with U-M stickers I ordered online. Between the sticker and paint I spent less than 10 bucks to "pimp" this ride. The funniest part is when Baby "A" saw it he keep saying "where red car go?". He actually thinks this is a totally new car. I have tried explaining that I simply painted it, but he is not having it. This is his "new car".
So, now I am on the look out for another used Cosy Coupe to paint cream and crimson for daddy's alma mater Indiana University. And, don't even think of asking -there will be no Ohio State Cosy Coupes in this garage.
