Pimp My Ride -- Cozy Coupe Toddler Car Makeover

I had too much fun this weekend.
Our neighborhood had it's
big garage sale
and I scored this Cozy Coupe car as a gift
for one of my closest friends
for $5 !!

"My Made-Over Kid Car in all it's glory..."

Here's how cool she is,
before she was a mom,
she was the lead singer in a rock band.

She really is a Rock Star!

Court's having her second baby boy this week,
and I couldn't just give them
the new big brother mobile
the way it was...
come on people, it was practically
So I picked up some handy-dandy spray paint....

Faded Cozy Coupe...after I scrubbed off A LOT of dirt and sand crud.

First the girls helped me clean it up
and I painted it black.

Re-painted car in black.

Then, I taped off some "flames" on the doors,
and used orange and yellow flourescent paint.

Hooray for Blue Painter's Tape!!

I channeled my inner-graffiti artist.
Then I added head lights and tail lights.

The car before I added head lights and tail lights.

It's so cool, now I want to
spray paint my minivan!

I've started a mommy makeover revolution!
My neighbor, Holly, called me this AM before I finished my
morning coffee to get detailed directions
while her kids were scrubbing their old car,
to prep it for it's spray-tastic makeover!!

And check out Teach Mama's awesome new ride!

Holla Holla P & G Mama! Great idea.

I, also, recently scored a Cozy Coupe for $5. Of course, my little guy won't be able to use it for a few more years, but it was too good a deal. I was just thinking of spray painting the grill and adding reflectors for headlights. Now, I think I am going to go all out and do the whole thing.

If we had had a girl, I totally would have made it pink & green.

Pink & Green Mama said...

Yes, I wanted to make it pink and green for my former SBC mama but since she's having her second boy we went rock star instead. I wanted to add a grill and spinners but alas time did not allow it!

I LOVE it!!!

Not Hannah said...

You totally should have a Pimp My Cozy Coupe contest!

Pink & Green Mama said...

I'm game ladies but am not tech savvy enough to know how to pull this one off..any of you know how to use Mr. Linky or do this kind of thing???

Amy Jo said...

Are you kidding me? That is AWESOME! You need to submit this to some kind of makeover contest. Your friend is going to love it! I'm going to keep my eyes open for cheesy plastic toys at garage sales too...

I am a shameless, complete, and total copycat, but I totally gave you some link love over at teachmama. Check out OUR pimped up coupe--definitely not as cool as yours, but still pretty darn cool if you ask me! Thanks for another great idea. . . soon my whole street will be sportin' new coupes!
