CC Follow Up: The Ugly American Is Now A True Hipster

IMG_0602 1200

I’ve been following this car’s changing locations since I first shot about three and a half years ago. In its CC, I called it “The Hip Ugly American”, because I knew its young owners bought it for its hipness, and not its other qualities. But in my most recent encounter with it, it’s now gone full-bore hipster, inside and out.

Let’s check out the exterior remodeling first. I’m guessing the “face” on the hood has some connotation, but I’m not hip enough to know.

Here’s where things really get hip: there’s nothing hipper than bamboo anything, especially rear window surrounds.

More bamboo on the doors, and genuine burlap coffee bean bags for seat covers. And the dash has gone purple. I’m sure I missed some other touches too.

Well, it does have hips, so I guess it was bound to become a genuine hipster, sooner or later.
