Chrysler’s financing department is apparently not a fan of the abstract arts.
In St. Petersburg, Florida, recently laid off “artist” Jennifer Stone-Anderson has found herself in danger of losing her precious, hand-painted Obama wagon to Chrysler’s repo man. Released from employment months ago by Rainbow Art and Design in Tampa, FL, rather than spend her newly-acquired free time doing something productive, such as looking for another job, Stone-Anderson decided to convert her white 2004 Saturn Ion into a garish political campaign on wheels. Using her abundant supply of leftover acrylic paint, Stone-Anderson covered the car from stem to stern with colorful images supporting Obama’s political platform.
Unfortunately, now that Stone-Anderson is unemployed, she’s been able to make the payments on her rolling nightmare and Chrysler, who financed the vehicle, is threatening to repossess it. According to Stone-Anderson herself, she hasn’t made a payment on the Saturn since November of 2008 but, surprisingly enough, the letters from Chrysler announcing their intention to take back the car don’t worry her. Confirming our initial suspicion that she is a few colors short of a full palette, Stone-Anderson told the St. Petersburg Times that she isn’t concerned with the possibility of repossession. “Barack says he’s an eternal optimist,” she said. “We’re like minds.”
Frankly, we’re just surprised it wasn’t a Prius.
