The logo on the decklid says "Campfire Beans" and was inspired by this scene:

Also, don't forget that "Blazing Saddles" is the brand name for a hemorrhoid ointment in the TM universe.

Those numbers on the doors look really, really awkward... raise them up a bit.

I think one factor is that it's not the usual PSI font on most of my cars that we're used to seeing. Or in this case, the usual Old West type of # style. I thought it looked a bit weird at first myself, but the more I looked at it the more comfortable I became with it. As far as placement goes, I think that the #s may be a bit closer to the nose than I like, but I did it so that the 3D look on the flames could be seen better. Plus, I don't have a lot else going on with the car as I tried to keep it as clean and clutter free as I could. I think that the side skirts layer being turned off enhances/exacerbates the optical illusion where the #s are concerned as well. Are the #s supposed to be slightly rotated to match the slant of the side skirts?

Rogue rendered this one for me:



I'm really digging the wicked cool colors on it myself! It does lose the gradient though. But it's still awesome looking.

I kind of liked the burnt orange look I had going at first, that is, until I saw Rogue's render. These have the new headlights and colored rims. I like the old headlights better myself. Taking a cue from Rogue's render above, I tried out a more vibrant color for the BS car:





I still like his ultra bright retina burning version better though.

Thoughts/concerns/adulation?
