    This California is screaming for bumpers and to be in original colours.

    I like this video, Petrolicious want to make us believe in daily use but in the view of prices invested by investors more concerned about their fortune than these cars.
    I read some projection in 5 years, but I think also we will not see these cars in streets excepted in a museum, a concours of elegance etc... All delivered by truck of course.

    When they say "they don't make them like they used to" -- they are referring to cars like the 250 CA

    But, the sound track to this video is just bloody awful.

    I didn't put the sound, later I will do that.

    I only express my sentiments for this video, Petrolicious and his gang do very well things.

    Agree on bumpers but wasn’t original color nocciola?
    Of all the colors to have your cal spider painted I probably wouldn’t choose that one even if it was the original color, don’t you think?

    Personally, I just like cars to be how they were born. I quite like Nocciola and it suits the California's elegance. This particular car does not look good in red. It's not a Comp. California and should have its bumpers, so it doesn't look like it's trying to be something it's not. Actually, I think it will look fantastic as it was born as well. All just my opinion of course, and to each their own.
