Hate to say it, but whoever stole the Ford has dubious tastes!

This is Florida, you sure you don't mean the Purple Hair Gang?

Wouldn't have been my first choice either. Maybe they had to move it to get at the Corvette with the convertible hardtop and just decided to keep both.

That's an illusion. The red hats and purple dresses make the blue hairs appear purple. :)

unfortunately i bet both of these cars are either in shipping containers headed overseas, or in 1000 parts by now.

The blurb doesn't say but one would hope so. They were toting at least one of them back and forth to Vt to car shows and what not.

maybe they couldn't sell any other way (times are hard)
