Pink Car Turns Heads in Scripps Ranch

I'm driving into work today when I see this woman spray painting a car bright pink & green on the side of the road. I drive past and then quickly do a u-turn because curiosity gets the best of me. This is not typical suburban behavior. She says its a car they bought at auction a few years back and today it died right here a few blocks from her home. Turns out she is an artist and has always wanted to do this. (Think Banksy but not quite as mysterious or well known) She plans to leave it a few days as an artistic statement and then have it hauled off to the junkyard. So do you love the "outside the box statement" or are you pissed this is on your street for the next several days?

A spray painted pink car parked on the side of a Scripps Ranch road has residents turning their heads. 

The car was first spotted by NBC 7's Steven Luke when he was driving to work. He saw a woman spray painting her car and did a quick U-turn. Later that day, he shared the video on his Facebook Page.

The woman painting the car said she bought it at an auction a few years ago. 

On Tuesday, the car died at that exact spot, a few blocks from her home. She is an artist, she told Luke, and had always wanted to spray paint her car. 

So she did. 

The woman said she wants to leave the car there for a few days as an artistic statement before she hauls it off to a junkyard. 

Residents who live nearby chimed off on the page. Some, like Nicole, said, "the world has bigger problems than this." Others, like Adria, said the sight was "so distracting." Read a selection of comments below.

So, do you love the "outside the box" statement or would you be mad to see such a car parked along your street? Let us know in the comments.
