Mellow Yellow Monday --- The Flag

MellowYellowMondayBadge Welcome to another edition of Mellow Yellow Monday.

The owner of this vehicle was an attractive grey haired man who appeared to be about fifty. We had a nice chat and this is what I learned about the paint job on this Jeep. The gentleman said that in his younger days he did a lot of auto racing but gave up the sport when he realized that the only way he would ever get the checkered flag was to buy one. Years later he reached the point where he could afford to satisfy an old desire. He had his Jeep painted to look like it had just raced through a checkered flag, ripping the flag and pressing it against the vehicle.
