Default Yikes.. Who would spend money on a paint Job Like this?

My girlfriend saw this Impala parked next to our Bonneville while she was leaving work and snapped me some pics.
Now... im not knocking on the quality of paint since it looks of very high quality, but why would the owner pay for a pink to purple top to bottom fade? LOL.. even girls with money to blow have more sence and taste than this.
*Note the bonnevilleforum.com sticker in my rear window.

OK, not that you mention it, I see it. Bad angle and hard to read.
