Paris Has A New Ride

As revealed to Sundries' readers earlier this month, Miss Paris Hilton has ordered a specially-made car for herself, to echo the famous pink Malibu Barbie car every girl of a certain age remembers having:

A shocking pink Bentley...



You know, I was prepared to like it, just because I was lured by the quaintness of the impulse, but I confess I hate it.

Not only do those all-pink hubcaps make it look utterly rubbishy, but the interior takes away from all the charm of the enterprise.



It's a neurotic car much better suited to an aged bimbo like Zsa-Zsa Gabor, than the relatively youthful Angeleno airhead dangling her own handbag (literally, her own handbag. Check out what it says).

I see this on eBay within year's end.

    Spot on. You seriously have a talent for this sort of observation.

  • Well, 'tis a Bentley. Nothing can disfigure a Bentley. That's mostly coz it's pretty disfigured when it leaves the factory.

  • My sister drives a pink luxury car. It's about the 5th one she's earned. It's beautiful on the inside with a dark gray/black usually. You can't tell the car is pink from the inside. When my brother-in-law drives it, he is sometimes met with ribbing when he gets out. He snaps back: What color is your wife's free $70000 car?

  • This sister does not drive a pink luxury car. I drive a well-worn 1998 Chevy Cavalier in a deep purple color. It has 220K miles on it and owes me nothing.

    When Mary got the car, I got a ride in it. If money were no object, I'd order the same car. It's just so slick...and it's American made. The pink is not bad at all....almost a pink with a black/gray tint.

    I loved Scott's, comment, Ruth....bet that put the naysayers to shussh. *grin*

  • Reminds me of Angelyne's pink corvette.

    Saw her perform at the Wiltern as the opening act for Nina Hagen back on Christmas Day, 1984.

    She was terrible (Nina was pretty awesome, though).

    Here's Angelyne's wiki, she's was a local phenom here in SoCal for awhile in the 80s and early 90s (due to a series of billboards of her around town), think she's still around, but what was kitschy fun 25 years ago is now just sad and scary.
