Laughing OG paint is OG paint period. People should realize that a car wearing its original paint after 40 or so years is like wearing a badge of honor. It has somehow avoided cheap Maaco paint booths and never went out of style.
Everyday, cars are getting repainted and cars are original only once thats why many people have learned and almost mastered the art of bringing back original paint from underneath layers of old shitty repaints.
Patina happens to all cars differently depending on where they came from. Desert climate sunburn patina is my favorite. Mossy wet patina is humid down south thing.
Patina shouldnt be confused with a vehicle being a piece of shit, rather a piece of history. Lets take a trip .... Cool
