A History in Pictures

Success suc·cess [suhk-ses]
1. the favorable or prosperous termination of attempts or endeavors.
2. the attainment of wealth, position, honors, or the like.
3. a successful performance or achievement: The play was an instant success.
a person or thing that is successful: She was a great success on the talk show.
5. team There Will Be Bacon's 2008 BABE Rally car paint job.

Things were not looking so good for team There Will Be Bacon when our original target painting dates were rained-out (or hangovered-out). But with two evenings left before the car's departure on its fateful mission to the East, never to return, a dedicated team of extremely hard-working and attractive volunteers came together to attempt the impossible; the sweetest $25 paint job of all time in only 48 hours.

The result? History. But don't let the history books tell you what to think- see for yourself in our collected photographic history of the baconmobile.

Team There Will Be Bacon would like to thank the following Titans of Paintliness, who selflessly offered their immense talent and infinitely refined skill to the alter of the rally car, and are now rewarded with immortality:

Brian G (MVP of detailing)
Kyle S (MVP of the bacon stripe)
Courtney (MVP of lettering)
Tricia (MVP of being adorable [awwwwww])
Mike B (MVP of the beer-run)

Remember these names, for as Honorary There Will Be Bacon team members, their powerful influence will direct the course of history.

You're going on a road race. The phrase on the side of your car could be considered a cop-taunt (pigs -> bacon). Awesome

Also: it came out looking bad-ass. Good luck!

Thanks, Dr. Lorney! It didn't occur to me until yesterday that we are TOTALLY baiting cops! Good thing that it doesn't get above 60mph. They'll have to find a different reason to pull us over. (Like obstructing the brakelight with a Star Wars figurine?)
