How does all that work.?
Does Coca-Cola corp. pay for the install and give you some advertising money.
I think I saw where you said the interior was next. What's planned?

It's a current trend. People are painting their cars with lots of name brand themes. I don't think the companies mind it.

I think the this Coca-Cola car works really well - the white on top actually looks like a Coke wave. Nice job.

I remember back about 12 -15 years ago in Florida, major companies were paying individuals to have their cars, vans, etc. painted (not vinyl wrapped) with corporate colors, logo's to create rolling billboards for advertising.
I remember seeing the ad's for it - if you wanted to participate they would consider what you were driving and where you lived and commuted to and from to be accepted. And the people were compensated for a predetermined period of time and then the car would be painted back to a one color car after the contract time ran out.
I just never inquired so i don't know what the details were / are.

If that's your cardomain page, the car looks great! The Riv has those Coke bottle curves so it fits quite nicely. Plus, the rims look like giant bottlecaps!!

Uhmm...don't you think that running regular gas may have lead to you blowing your motor? Low octane fuel isn't good for supercharged applications. Plus running without an air filter is plain dumb bonk
