What’s flyer than whipping through the streets in a Manchester City themed chevy? Nothing. At least according to long-time Citeh supporters Mike Radcliffe and Shaun Donohoe, who decided they needed something a little more swagged out to roll to premiership matches in than their regular cars, which seemingly did not come standard with a painting of David Silva lifting up his shirt on one of the doors.
What’s better is that instead of turning to X-Zibit to customize their ride, they turned to a bunch of Manchester United fans.
Mike said: “We had to tell Tom Jones, a United fan from Oldham who has done art work on cars for us before, ‘don’t you dare put a Red Devil on it’.”
Another lad from Stockport, who did the upholstery, is also a United fan.
“When it was finished we went over it with a fine tooth comb to make sure they hadn’t hidden any United stuff in it.”
After a quick re-spray the vehicle hosts the Blues crest on the bonnet and seats, City legends Colin Bell, Franny Lee and Mike Summerbee on one side with Nigel De Jong, David Silva and Carlos Tevez on the other.
There’s even a replica FA Cup.
Mike, 60, said: “Shaun wanted a big and brash car to go to matches in. We found this one but then it snowballed.
“We drove to the ground to pick up the new away shirt and it caused plenty of comments. But we didn’t take it to Wembley – it only does 10 miles to the gallon.”
In your face, Manchester United supporters. You may have won your 19th premier league title this past season, but these two blokes made a select few of your own opulently paint their car to honor your bitter crosstown rival. In. Your. Face.
Those United supporter painters better get ready for some additions, because that depiction of Carlos Tevez is probably going to need to be revised if he gets his want-away wish this summer.
