Collen Kelton desperately wanted a Nissan Skyline GT-R. Initially, he wanted a purple one, but realized he'd have to settle for a less favorable shade given the demand for such a vehicle was high. 


Unfortunately, he suffered a scratch on his bumper and was about to get it detailed and painted when his wife, talented artist Allison LaValley, offered up a potential solution. Rather than spending hundreds on a flashy paint job, why not let her cover it up with a little design in Sharpie?

Figuring if it looked bad he'd get it painted over anyway, he agreed to let the love of his life work her magic on his baby. Thank goodness he did, because the end result of this Sharpie car is downright amazing!
