Yes, it was

Spotted on a Sussex road. It was the color of Pepto-Bismol.

Who would drive a pink, high-performance, automobile?
And brag about it?

When I see a car with a horrible paint job, I wonder if their previous car was stolen.

Once saw a car with the license plate IAMGOD. The Lord drives a white caddy and lives in Las Vegas.

@Mitch — I swear I am not making this up.

In about 2005, in the Stonestown district of San Francisco, I saw a pink Mustang convertible, top down, California vanity tag VA N QLO, driven by a mustachioed man with wavy pink hair. To gild the lily (!), he had a bumper sticker declaring DELIVERIES IN REAR. I was in the next lane and slightly behind so I am 100% certain of what I saw, stone cold sober on a weekday mid-afternoon.

For those not Spanish bilingual, the plate is pronounced Va en culo, meaning, um, that he’s the stinkin’ pitcher, not the catcher.

The flamingest flaming gay flamer on the planet in 2005 lived in San Francrisco and drove, among other things, a drop top Mustang.

Uh, I saw Santa Claus driving a Datsun Bluebird on I95 just north of Peas AFB back in the mid 70s. He was out of uniform at the time, it being around June.

Said “that guy looks like Santa Claus!” as I passed him.

Sure enuf, plates said “S Claus”.

WRT the Porsche…
I was going to suggest the Porsche driver was a classy older woman, and then I started to type “with a pink dye job” and realized that eliminated the whole “classy” probability.

In the early 1970s, Porsche entered a 917 in LeMans that was called “the Pink Pig”

I have this theory that the older and/or more beat-up your car or truck is (because in Texas I think there are more pickup trucks than cars), the more invisible your vehicle becomes, and everyone on the road wants to be exactly where your car is. Every outing looks like a scene from a James Bond movie.

Before my office moved, we used to have an ORANGE sports car in our parking garage with the license plate CLKWRK.
