Really?

I'm no fan of the look of the BMC itself, but I think that's a really classy paint job! (With the theme I'm guessing the dashed lines are supposed to be tailor's measuring lines?)

The paint is nice, but pity that it's on that eyesore of a frame. :(

Appreciate the idea. Do not find the aesthetic result to be very impressive... but de gustibus I guess.

Err... that's why he's retiring. This is a retirement gift.
