I took this photograph one night of this tin foil covered car in a New York grocery store parking lot. We stopped and gave this particular car a double take as we were walking by. We figured it was completely covered with tin foil to either hide it's ugly paint job or possibly to stop an attempted alien abduction. Why do you think this car was totally covered with tin foil?

No this particular is covered with tin foil TSAD, and it's being driven at least around town. The tin foil was attached to the vehicle with some type of adhesive, and it really looks wild close up. The gas cap door for some reason is missing.
TSAD, I resemble that remark. I bet my Prius gets better fuel mileage than your "whatever" does. Going from an SUV @ 15 mpg to a Prius @ 45-53 MPG sure felt good. I laugh all the way from the gas pump, and I have no desire to cover my car in foil.
I don't think it was because they didn't have anything else to cover it with. I think it was someone's version of a cheap alternative to a new paint job.
Actually the 24 karat gold on the Delorean looks like the bronze colour they sometimes use to tint anodised aluminium windows. Maybe they did a deal with the local window fabrication company!
